Three Games Without A Win: Mourinho Faces Struggling Southampton


Manchester United will hope to bounce back from successive draws when they host a struggling Southampton side on Saturday.

Jose Mourinho’s Christmas spell has not gone to plan after his side followed a disappointing 2-2 draw at Leicester with a another point against Burnley on Boxing Day.

It means United have not won in three matches after defeat to Bristol City in the Carabao Cup quarter-final earlier this month.

However, United will fancy their chances against a Southampton side who have managed just one point from four and shipped 11 goals in their last four Premier League games.

The game is set to begin by 6.30pm Nigerian time.

Chris Smalling is a doubt for the visit of Southampton after he missed the 2-2 draw with Burnley on Boxing Day.

The England international picked up an injury in the draw with Leicester ahead of Christmas and will likely sit out until the New Year along with team-mate Matteo Darmian.

Antonio Valencia, Marouane Fellaini, Michael Carrick and Eric Bailly all remain sidelined.

Southampton will be without the suspended Charlie Austin as he serves a three-game ban for his challenge on Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lossl.
