Manchester United have won on three of their four trips to St Mary’s, including a 2-1 win in May 2005 that ultimately relegated Southampton after a 27-year stay in the top flight.
There have been 92 goals scored in their 26 Premier League contests – an average of 3.5 goals per game.
The current Southampton squad has made a combined 233 Premier League appearances. Manchester United’s quintet of Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Wayne Rooney, Michael Carrick and Rio Ferdinand have reached that figure individually.
Saints are in danger of losing their opening three matches of a season for the first time in 11 years.
They have won only three of their 41 Premier League matches played in the opening three fixtures.
If selected, Billy Sharp will be making his 250th start, Dan Fox will be playing in his 250th match in English football and Adam Lallana the 200th of his club career.
This fixture is Sir Alex Ferguson’s 1,000th league match as Manchester United manager. He has won 598, drawn 233 and lost 168 of the previous 999. His team have scored 1,863 goals and conceded 890 during his reign.
United are unbeaten in their last 16 Premier League matches against newly-promoted clubs (13 wins) since a 1-0 defeat at Burnley in August 2009.
They have lost three of their last four away league matches by 1-0.
If selected, Ryan Giggs will be making his 600th Premier League appearance – the first player to reach this milestone, while Robin Van Persie is a hat-trick shy of 100 Premier League goals.
RvP really showed what he is capable of today. He really did not have the greatest distribution, but when he got the ball he did very well with putting it away (other than the penalty).
The difference in the match, though, came with the introduction of Paul Scholes. Need someone else to be able to step up like that.
Danny is an excitin player dat can play in absent of rooney, Chicharito is another player to beckon wt. Midfield options can come frm d likes of Anderson,Fletcher,Carrick n d little Tom. Against all odds! Nani shud start n play all matchs so long as his fit cuz his one player dat hs got more dan 20 options wt d ball. His skillful,fast,2 gud foots,strength,goal scorin ability,pass d ball wel,wt alot of assists,n above all a real threats to any defence in d world as far football is concern. In as much as he can som tyms b selfish,his jst a player we cant gamble wt by benchin him in serious matches.His d player dat any player wl lyk to play along side wt. Scholes shud also b played regularly to provide Rvp wt d passes to do his scorin.We Hv got another rude Boy in Rvp.Rooney is stl very important in d team as eva. Young player shud b allowed to learn frm d experience ones.Ryan Giggs is another player we shud at all tyms respect.Johnny,Smalling,Jones,etc shud play wen its necessary bt nt first team players.D 2 oda signings can also b given a chance to prove dem selves wen an opportunity present it sef.
Rvp did us man u fans proud yesterday n he shud b played wt experience players lyk “super Nani,Paul Scholes,Valencia,Kagawa in d midfield n Rooney as a supportin stricker. Man u is reali a grt club wt grt players. Sir shud stop experimentin wt little boys in serious matchs.Our defenders r Vidic,Rio,Evra n Rafeal.DeGea shud b played regularly to kip his form intact.
RVP well done.
