Southampton vs Man Utd LIVE: Latest Premier League scores and goals today

“Spirit high after beating Liverpool” – Ten Hag on his morale-boosting victory

Manchester United travel to Southampton for their early Premier League opener on Saturday, looking to build on their impressive 2-1 win over Liverpool last time out. Erik ten Hag’s men showed a level of energy and intensity that has been lacking at Old Trafford of late, avoiding a third straight defeat after losses to Brighton and Brentford.

The team are now optimistic and will need to live up to their own standards if they are to beat a Southampton side who clinched their first win of the season against Leicester City last weekend.

After a smashing 4-1 win against Tottenham and a 2-2 draw with Leeds, the Saints responded to a James Maddison goal, came from behind and thanks to Che Adams’ brace, secured a 2-1 away win at the Foxes. It was their second game in a row in which they picked up points from lost positions and manager Ralph Hasenhuttl will be hoping to find his feet in this shaky Manchester United side this afternoon.

27 mins: Bella-Kotchap has a good game for Southampton. United try to stream up the left side of the pitch while Eriksen and Malacia get the ball through midfield.

24 mins: This passage of the game will give both teams real confidence. It will tell Man Utd that Southampton are there to conquer it but also bolster the Saints for managing to keep all four efforts on goal away.

21 minutes: Chances! Why didn’t Man Utd score?

A cross comes in from the right and Bruno Fernandes heads it into the six-yard box with a header. However, he is under pressure from Armel Bella-Kotchap and can only get him to the back post where Anthony Elanga arrives and leads a try on goal.

Gavin Bazunu climbs over and keeps him away, but the ball deflects back to Fernandes, whose shot is blocked by Bella-Kotchap on the spin.

United aren’t done yet and Christian Eriksen comes into the box and practices an attempt on goal, but Bazunu is back in position and, with the help of Salisu, manages to deflect that attempt as well.

Incredible defense against the Saints!

15 mins: Manchester United haven’t been as intense as they started against Liverpool but they look composed.

The real test will be when the first goal is scored. Southampton will be confident they can score and if they continue Man Utd could start to capitulate.
