Martial Starts, Ibrahimovic Ousted: Manchester United vs Southampton Predicted Line-up

After a disappointing 2-2 draw against Burnley during the midweek, Manchester United will play host to Southampton on Saturday in a Premier League game.

The Red Devils have been on a poor run of form in recent time and have failed to win any match in three consecutive games including a shock 2-1 defeat to Bristol City in Carabao Cup.

Southampton on the other hand have also been on a poor form. They are yet to register any victory in four games.

Jose Mourinho men are currently 15 points behind league leaders Manchester City and a point above third place Chelsea.

However, the Red Devils will look to bounce back this weekend and grab the three maximum points against the Saint, otherwise they will drop to third place if Chelsea wins their match against Stoke City.

Sensational France winger Anthony Martial is expecting to return to starting line-up after missing last game due to knee injury while Chris Smalling could be fit for the game but likely to start from the bench.

Mourinho for the first time this season played both Romeru Lukaku and Zlatan Ibrahimovic together in his attack but we expect a change in that set up this weekend.

Antonio Valencia is out injured and versatile England star Ashley Young will likely keep his pace at the right-back while fellow England star Luke Shaw plays from the left-back.

Summer signing Lukaku is expected to take the nod over Ibrahimovic in the number nine role while Martial and Marcus Rashford plays from the left and right flanks respectively.

Here is how we expect Mourinho to line-up his men with Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo at the centre of defence in a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Manchester United Predicted line-up: David de Gea, Young, Jones, Rojo, Shaw, Matic, Pogba, Lingard, Martial, Rashford and Lukaku.
