MANCHESTER UNITED bounced back from the Liverpool mauling in style – and they’ll be eager to return to put three Premier League points on the board against Southampton.

And it was a relief for Erik Ten Hag who had to witness his side get humiliated by Liverpool just four days before.
But the United boss will want his men to keep their foot on the pedal when they welcome the struggling Saints to Old Trafford.
However, this is a must-win game for Southampton who are fighting for their lives in the relegation zone.
