Red Devils face a tough Sunday St Mary’s assignment in the EPL.

Latest EPL standings as well as fixtures and results are found below the predictions.

Manchester United kick off the English Premier League’s Sunday programme when they take on Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium.

Tenth-placed United wouldn’t even catch the home side if they pulled off a win on the south coast, with the Saints four points clear of their visitors and fifth in the EPL table going into the weekend.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has felt the heat ease on him in the Old Trafford hotseat, thanks to back-to-back Premier League wins over Everton and West Brom.

It looks like they may have to do without mercurial Paul Poga, though, with the French World Cup winner nursing an ankle injury.

Defensive duo Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Victor Lindelof are also suffering with knocks and will need assessing, while Luke Shaw is definitely ruled out against his boyhood club.

Southampton are flying but did see a run of three straight wins curtailed on Monday night, as they were held 1-1 by Wolves at Molineux.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side will be pushing for a spot in the Uefa Champions League qualification places if they can pull off another impressive result.

Deadly Danny Ings is out injured, joining Nathan Redmond in the treatment room for the visit of United.

James Ward-Prowse and Ryan Bertrand look to have overcome their respective minor injury problems.
