4-2-3-1: Man Utd’s strongest possible XI vs Southampton

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Manchester United suffered a shocking defeat at Old Trafford against Crystal Palace in their last league game and already, the Red Devils are five points behind leaders and arch rivals Liverpool.

Next up, the Old Trafford club will collide against Southampton away from home and Solskjaer would be looking to get back to winning ways.

The Norwegian manager would have to make a few key changes in the squad that started vs the Eagles last weekend.

The likes of Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial are out injured. In the absence of the English left back, we can expect Ashley Young to start. On the other hand, in the absence of the French international, Rashford could start as the lone striker up front.

Andreas Pereira should return and replace Lingard in the starting XI. Veteran Juan Mata should return to start on the right wing. James, who mainly plays on the right wing, scored a sublime goal vs Palace from the left. So, he should start on the left wing.

Solskjaer should bring experienced Matic back into the starting XI. The Serbian international should start with Pogba in the center of the park.

Here is Man Utd’s strongest possible 4-2-3-1 XI vs Southampton:
