Manchester United’s momentum appears to have slowed in recent Premier League fixtures, with just one win in four top flight outings deflating their title aspirations.
The Red Devils now sit three points behind rivals Manchester City having played a game more, and City look in no mood to simmer down.
United host Southampton at Old Trafford this week in game between two sides whose recent form has quelled late-2020 optimism.
Southampton had been flirting with the European places but a crippling injury list has led to a patchy run of form.
The Saints have lost three in a row and are in danger of sliding as low as 12th by the end of the week. Both sides will see this as an opportunity to regain control of their seasons.

Scott McTominay left the game at the weekend with stomach cramps but is expected to be fine to face Southampton, if required.

Five stars are definitely ruled out, and a further four are listed as doubts. Among them, Kyle Walker-Peters is out, though Jannik Vestergaard is closing in on a return, even if the United game is too soon.

Our prediction: Man Utd v Southampton
Win, win, win, win, approach ‘the next level’, lose, draw, repeat: this is the United way.
It’s hard to criticise Manchester United too much, after all, they do remain in title contention and have only won one less game than City after the halfway stage of the season. However, they’re still a frustrating outfit who can’t seem to press home advantages when they arise.
Southampton look ripe for the picking in their depleted state and, while Danny Ings is always a threat, United should have enough to test and breach their makeshift defence.
