Manchester United Starting XI Prediction vs Southampton (EFL Cup)

Share

efl-cup

Manchester United have been beaten just once in their last 25 overall across all competitions. It’s a feat unmatched since the Sir Alex Ferguson era. However, they’re still in sixth place in the league, a spot they have occupied since late October. Nevertheless, United have a chance for a so-called “plastic treble,” and winning in the EFL Cup on Sunday accomplishes the first component of that triad.

United have also reached the quarterfinals of the FA Cup and the last 16 of the Europa League.

The EFL Cup is the first English trophy of the season to be awarded and that will occur at the national stadium in London, Sunday February 26th. Southampton heads into Wembley having upset both Arsenal and Liverpool to make it to their first League Cup final since 1979 and just the second in their 132-year history.

Odds via Odds Checker:   Man United 17/20,   draw 11/4,    Southampton 9/2

  3. Mata would do well at the wing not at the centre as the prediction suggests. He makes timely crosses for others to score. Let Pogba be behind Zlatan. These two make a good combination.
