You may have already seen it, but in case you didn’t, Southampton FC created a video game for mobile devices to launch their new kit. In the vein of 8-bit Nintendo or 16 bit Sega Genesis, the game trolls Liverpool pretty hilariously, and Manchester United as well, not once, but twice.

You can go here to read more on that, but the timing could not have been perfect as the two sides will clash at Old Trafford on Monday night. United will certainly be very motivated to get all three points here, having had to settle for a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture back in August.

Southampton FC Poke Fun at Liverpool, Man United in New Video Game

You have probably already seen it, but in case you didn’t here’s a link to much more on the mobile game that Southampton FC created to launch their new kit for next season this past week.

Manchester City at Southampton FC Starting XI Predictions

For the rest of the Premier League run-in, Manchester City will focus on keeping their edge sharp for the next major competition, the UEFA Champions League in August. For City, it’s obviously extremely high in meaning, as they have yet to ever reach a UCL final, and it’s likely their ban for the next two seasons will be upheld.

So they got to make this one count. However, up next is a league clash at Southampton FC, and it’s a match-up where both sides will be very loose and free, as neither club has anything to lose in this one. We could see some squad rotation in this one.
