Southampton take on Man Utd on Sunday 2nd September, 2012, with kickoff at 16:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 1.
United didn’t exactly thrill their fans on the last day of the transfer window, but the early addition of Robin Van Persie still reverberates around Old Trafford, and when Wayne Rooney’s leg split open Sir Alex Ferguson must have been secretly delighted he’d added the Dutchman to his options. Southampton didn’t strengthen their defence, to the chagrin of their fans, and will need to attack with verve to stay up this term.
Today will be a chance to test themselves against some of the best the league has to offer, and if the Saints even get a draw the home fans will be ecstatic.
