United trailed 2-0 at one point of time against Blackpool but the introduction of Ryan Giggs and Javier Hernandez swung the game United’s way as they scored thrice in quick succession to complete a stunning 3-2 comeback win.

For this game against Southampton, Sir Alex Ferguson is likely to play without several first team regulars. Defender Rafael suffered an injury against Blackpool and has joined the likes of Hargreaves and Valencia in the treatment room.

Danish keeper Anders Lindergaard is likely to play under the sticks against Southampton with Dutch stopper Edwin van der Sar likely to be rested. Left back Patrice Evra may also be given a break.

Manchester United form- last five games- most recent first- Man United scorers in brackets-

Blackpool 2-3 Man United ( Berbatov*2, Hernandez)
Man United 5-0 Birmingham ( Berbatov*3, Giggs, Nani)
Tottenham 0-0 Man United
Man United 1-0 Liverpool ( Giggs)
Man United 2-1 Stoke ( Hernandez, Nani)

Danny N’Guessan is unavailable for Southampton as his parent club have declined him permission to play in the Cup for the Saints. Dean Hammond and Adam Lallana are both injury doubts

Fans will also get to see the young Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain in action. Chamberlain has been linked to both Man United and Arsenal in the January transfer window.

Verdict:- United’s defence has not been the strongest and with Ferguson expected to field a weak side, Southampton could certainly get on the scoresheet.

Even with a second string side, United have only lost once away all season and should have no problem beating Southampton.

Man United 2-0 Southampton ( Hernandez, Gibson)
