Southampton made the long journey north to Manchester knowing that even with a defeat they’d remain out of the relegation zone. Still, the pain that van Persie’s late winner caused earlier in the season lingers and fresh with a new manager, they’d fancy their chances of getting a result. United already knew they had a chance to widen the gap to City after seeing them draw at QPR on Tuesday. As ever, we welcome comments from both sets of fans.

United host Southampton fresh in the knowledge that there’s an opportunity to once again open up a seven point lead after City surprisingly dropped points at QPR on Tuesday night. Form is in United’s favour – they’ve not dropped any points at home since the Spurs game back at the end of September. Southampton are under new management of course after the shock sacking of Nigel Adkins but they haven’t lost a league game for over a month now and 8 points from their last six games isn’t the worst return. The meeting between the sides earlier this season was memorable for various reasons, not least because it truly announced van Persie as a United player. As ever we welcome comments and contributions from both sets of fans.

United travelled down to the south coast to renew a rivalry with Southampton that has produced some epic battles over the years. Southampton were yet to win a game or register a point this season whilst United lost their opening away game at Everton. This time around there’d not be a grey kit in sight but United and Ferguson still had surprises in store.
