Manchester United vs Southampton: Charlie Nicholas predicts scores ahead of crucial tie

Manchester United will look to get one over the visiting Southampton today, and secure a place in the top four, as the race for Europe heats up.

United have won all, except one of our fixtures since the league restart, and is currently on an incredible 17 match unbeaten run.

The run could be stretched even further after the game against the Saints on Monday, and Sky Sports’ pundit, Charlie Nicholas, believes a win for United is a likely outcome.

“Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba are starring, but the penalty changes the game and they can be dominant after that, but the penalty was very debatable,” he said, during his usual match day predictions.

“A giant like Man Utd have to get the top four and they look like they will get it. They don’t care about the top two at moment, they just need to keep winning games and make that top four their own. I expect United to win and nail the top four spot.”

If we win tonight, we’ll move to third, and one point above Chelsea, and two ahead of Leicester City.
