Southampton vs Manchester United: Kick off time today, prediction, TV, live stream, confirmed teams, h2h

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag will this afternoon be desperate to maintain momentum against Southampton after finally earning the first win of his tenure.

There was unlikely no man more relieved than the new manager after masterminding a 2-1 win over Liverpool on Monday night, having dropped captain Harry Maguire and talisman Cristiano Ronaldo to full effect. Now attentions turn to the south coast and two away games.

Southampton also earned their first win of the season last time out, beating Leicester, and now face United and Chelsea before the end of the month.


Date, kick-off time and venue

Southampton vs Manchester United is scheduled for a 12.30pm BST kick-off today, Saturday, August 27, 2022.

St Mary’s in Southampton will host the match.

Southampton vs Man United prediction

Confidence is - finally - on the up at Manchester United and the players appear to be listening to the manager based on their performance against Liverpool.

Saturday poses a different task, though, and a different type of motivation.

Ralph Hasenhuttl is in a similar situation ahead of two tough games, but I feel United’s superior quality should shine through.

United win, 2-0.
