Having only secured one (1) point out of a possible six (6) in their last two games, United will be keen to try and grab all three tonight in order to keep up with Manchester City and stay ahead of Liverpool.
The last time these two teams met, Utd left St Mary’s Stadium with a dramatic and exciting 3-2 win. Man Utd manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be wanting to replicate their impressive performance tonight in order to retain their second-place spot in the table.
Man Utd have had to deal with a quick turnaround from Saturday’s game against Arsenal, nevertheless, they look to have a strong squad once again. There are no fresh injuries and as Solskjaer has been able to continually rotate the squad, any potential fatigue among the players has been kept to a minimum.
In his pre-match press-conference yesterday, Solskjaer said, “Apart from the wear and tear and the quick turnaround, everyone should be available. They’re not injured anyway. It’s just a matter of energy levels and see how they feel tomorrow. No new, fresh injuries anyway.”
When questioned about the lack of goals in recent games, Solskjaer replied, “I think we’ve created enough chances to score the goals and now it’s just about feeling good and taking a deep breath and putting the balls between the posts”.
