The Saints finally managed to end the negative streak of five consecutive games without success and so the last weekend at Riverside Stadium won 0-1 on their visit to Middlesbrough, which led by Claude Puel still in The fight to finish the Premier in the middle of qualifying.
For their part, the defeat of the weekend in their visit to Tottenham Hotspur left without chances to the led by Jose Mourinho in their fight for classification to Champions League, reason why at the moment the Reds Devils point all the glances to his A game against Ajax for the UEFA Europa League final, since winning that tournament goes directly to the Champions League, and so it is very difficult for Mourinho to start making some modifications in his stellar eleven, although of course if Arsenal does not win Tuesday can cut distance to secure even a place in the Europa League.
As for direct clashes, Manchester United has been much more successful throughout history in terms of results, it should be said their games have been a little tighter lately, to the point that the final of the Legue Cup disputed in the month Of February won it by 3-2 with goal of the Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic with three minutes to the end.
So we think Southampton has a great chance to break that two-game losing spell at home against Manchester United, the Red Devils are already looking at their game for the Europa League final and will not want to get injured in a game with Little or nothing of importance for them, rather the motivation leaves for the Saints since it is always rewarding to face teams with much history in the world-wide soccer; So the double chance wins or tie Southampton is the best alternative for this game.
