Manchester United made it three wins on the bounce with a commanding 4-1 demolition of Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
The win leaves us needing just one point against either Paris Saint-Germain or RB Leipzig in our final two games of the group stage.
A Bruno Fernandes brace and Marcus Rashford penalty in the first half put us well on the way to victory before half-time, before Daniel James scored only his second goal in 48 matches in stoppage time.
It came off the back of our 1-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League last weekend.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer now takes his side to Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday, with the Saints flying high up in fifth place – four points above us.
Somewhat surprisingly, we’re actually slight odds on favourites to come away with all three points despite Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side making a very impressive start this season. Punters may want to steer away from backing us, and may find the odds on Roulette at this casino site in Uganda a more attractive offer.
The south coast side will have only had 24 hours’ additional rest than us before we clash at St Mary’s this weekend, as they were drawing 1-1 away to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night. They held us to draws in both fixtures last season, when they were a bottom half side.
Our hectic schedule of playing midweek and weekend games for 10 consecutive weeks means that Ole is going to have to do a lot of rotating.
Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford were both substituted just before the hour so they should be in line to start at Southampton, whilst an excellent performance from Donny van de Beek on Tuesday night surely means he’s in content to make his first Premier League start.
We could even welcome back Paul Pogba this weekend, having missed our last two matches after picking up a knock over the international break.
On paper I think this a tough match than the bookmakers are expecting but three points would be a real statement of intent to get back into the top four hunt.
