Manchester United will take on Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium this afternoon (Sunday) in gameweek 2 of the 2021/22 Premier League season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will be aiming to win a second successive game at the onset of the campaign and reclaim top spot in the Premier League.
The Red Devils in their season-opening fixture cruised to a 5-1 win over Leeds United, with Bruno Fernandes scoring a fine hat-trick.

That is exactly what could be seen at the onset of their season as well, as they were handed a 3-1 defeat by Everton on the opening weekend, although Adam Armstrong did score a goal on debut.
