Manchester United will play host to Southampton at Old Trafford tonight, and United will be aiming for the three points, to keep our hopes of playing in the Champions League alive.
After last weekend’s action, which saw the likes of Chelsea and Leicester City lose their matches, Man United now have a unique opportunity to topple both clubs in the league table, and go third.
As it stands, United lie fifth on the log, two points behind Chelsea and one behind Leicester City, but a win tonight will effectively put us in third, one point ahead of Chelsea and two ahead of Leicester City.
It will put us in a strong position to finish the season well, and book a place in the UEFA Champions League for next season, even if we end up not winning the Europa League.
But it has to be said that the match tonight is an important one, and our opposition shouldn’t be taken for granted.
Southampton haven’t lost a game in their last three outings, and they are the latest team to beat Manchester City.
