Manchester United Stars Arrive At The Lowry As Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Side Look To Keep Pressure On Top Four When They Face Struggling Southampton

Romelu Lukaku may retain his starting spot after scoring a brace midweek at Crystal Palace

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer led his Manchester United stars into the Lowry Hotel ahead of their Premier League clash with lowly Southampton at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer’s side remain unbeaten in the Premier League since the Norwegian took charge in December, having won nine games and drawn two to reignite their Champions League prospects.

The team, currently one point behind fourth-placed Arsenal, are in the midst of an injury crisis, with the likes of Juan Mata and Nemanja Matic likely to still be absent through injury.

Despite several absent first-team stars, the club saw off Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in midweek through Romelu Lukaku’s brace and Ashley Young’s late goal.

After the Saints game, focus will turn to Man United’s trip to France to face Paris Saint-Germain in their Champions League last-16 second leg tie.

The English giants will need to overturn a 2-0 deficit in order to progress, but will be without influential midfielder Paul Pogba.

Under Solskjaer, the Frenchman has excelled in league action, notching nine goals and proving a powerful force in the middle of the park.
