Our football match prediction:
After dropping two points in a 2-2 draw with Stoke City, Manchester United rolled over Everton (4-0) in their last league match. The Red Devils proved their worth in the triumph over Ronald Koeman’s troops, with Romelu Lukaku scoring fifth goal of the season. Jose Mourinho’s men are seen as one of the main favourites to win the trophy, but they will have a big fish to fry in Saturday’s football match against Southampton. The Saints proved their worth in a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace at the weekend, but they struggle in front of goal in general. Seeing that Man Utd have been impressive at the back in the 2017/2018 Premier League campaign, a low-scoring affair appears on the horizon and we predict that one goal is going to separate the two teams in the St. Mary’s showdown. In their last meeting in Southampton the Red Devils emerged triumphant.
Highlighted Player (Forster):
Originating from Hexham, Fraser Forster is an English goalkeeper who spent his early career at Newcastle United, but surprisingly did not make a single Premier League appearance during the seven years at St James’ Park. Forster first showed promise during the loan spell with Norwich City, but it was the stint with Celtic that earned him wide acclaim and saw him become an England international. After spending four years at Parkhead, the highly rated goalkeeper returned to the Premier League to sign for Southampton and he has since acted as club’s number one goalkeeper. Forster has been a member of the England national team since 2013, usually acting as a back up for Joe Hart, making a handful of appearances in international friendlies. Forster was in the Three Lions squad at the 2014 World Cup and Euro 2016, and with quite a few of good years in front of him, the towering goalkeeper should get the opportunity to win few more England caps before he retires from football.
Highlighted Team (Manchester United):
Over the years Manchester United have established themselves as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Red Devils have won three European Cup (Champions League) trophies and they have clinched no less than 20 Premier League titles. A number of top-class players were part of Manchester United in the past, but, no doubt, the club’s biggest legend is coach Sir Alex Ferguson, who was in charge of the team for 26 years. During Alex Ferguson’s spell at Old Trafford the club won a number of trophies, but the Red Devils have been struggling in all competitions ever since he retired. Louis van Gaal helped Manchester United win the FA Cup trophy in the 2015/2016 season, with Jese Lingard scoring the winner in the 2-1 triumph over Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium. The likes of Bobby Charlton, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best and Eric Cantona are the football stars that graced Old Trafford for Manchester United.
