Manchester United Football Club, quite frankly, need all the help they can get. This weekend, the Red Devils visit the South-Coast to take on Southampton – who are a team on the rise under Ralph Hasenhuttl.
Fortunately for the Old Trafford club, they have been given a boost before their trip to St. Mary’s Stadium. Key Southampton man, Nathan Redmond, is ‘likely’ to miss the game against United on Saturday as he picked up a knee injury. That’s according to Hasenhuttl himself, via the BBC.
Redmond is arguably Southampton’s most important attacking player. The Englishman is mega-talented, though sometimes inconsistent, but he’s always liable to turn up and have an outstanding game.
The fact that he’s missing definitely strengthens United’s case at winning all three points, though that Red Devils defence simply has to be better than last time out – while up top, the onus will be on Marcus Rashford.
United shouldn’t go there and underestimate their Saturday lunch-time opponents, and if they don’t this is a winnable game for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his players. Hopefully, the boys can go out there, get the job done and bring three points back to Old Trafford before the international break.
