Manchester United will collide against Southampton in the EFL Cup final at the weekend. Who will come out on top?
The Red Devils have won their last five games in all competitions. On the other hand, the Saints have won 2 and lost 3 of their last five fixtures.
Claude Peul’s men have been brilliant in the EFL Cup this season. They have won all five games in the competition without even conceding a single goal, even against the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool, who are the joint top scorers in the Premier League.
Therefore, Mourinho’s team will have to work very hard to break Southampton’s solid defense.
As far as Man United’s team news is concerned, the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Michael Carrick suffered injuries in the last game against Saint-Etienne in the Europa League.
Expect the likes of Herrera and Fellaini to line up in the center of the park for the Old Trafford club. In the attack, Martial should replace Mkhitaryan to partner Pogba and Mata behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The likes of Valencia, Rojo and De Gea will likely return to the starting XI as well. Here is Man Utd’s strongest possible 4-2-3-1 XI vs Southampton.
