Manchester United presser reaction and preview vs Southampton

On a Saturday lunchtime kick off Manchester United travel down to the South to face Southampton.


This will make Ten Hag's side a different test to the one we had on Monday as we will have 65-70% possession and we will have to watch out for any counter attacks that may occur therefore, we must be aware and have players that can stop a counter attack and in comes Manchester United's latest signing Casemiro, who's best attribute is arguably stopping counter attacks and any possible attacks that the opposition may create.


What test will they give us?


Well we know Ralph Hasenhùttl came from the RB group so that can only suggest one thing that, they will press and therefore David de gea will be at the fore front of everybody's mind when thinking about what Man United need to be aware of.

Expected Man United team:

De Gea, Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Malacia,

Casemiro, Fred, Bruno Fernandes,

Rashford, Anthony Martial Jadon Sancho



Score prediction:

I think we will dominate and create numerous chances so, plenty of goals for Man United in my opinion and I'm going to go for a 2-0 away win but what do you think?


Press conference reaction:


Regarding team news:

" Anthony Martial is out of the game with an achilles injury and we have to wait and see for how long he will be out for".


Erik ten Hag on Southampton: "It's a different challenge, so I'm curious whether we learned our lesson against Brentford."


Ten Hag on standards : “We need to have a high standard. It’s a demand to the group. Now they see what the reward is, so we have to match the runs in and out of possession. We need runs and movement if you want to dictate a game.”



Ten Hag on outgoings:

Jones, Williams and Tuanzebe: "We are talking about players who are not available, I don't think they will go out in this window."


Ten Hag on Casemiro availability:

“Casemiro has trained with the team. He is available.”



Ten Hag: “Casemiro has trained with the team. He is available.”
