Manchester United are preparing to host Southampton in the Premier League on Monday, July 13.

Ahead of the game, Sky Sports football expert Charlie Nicholas has made his prediction.

“Man Utd were dominant after the initial 20 minutes at Villa Park, and it then became a walk in the park. Anthony Martial looked off it in parts, but he does look desperate to score goals, as does Marcus Rashford. It was a lovely strike by Mason Greenwood on his right foot,” said Nicholas.

“Southampton are awkward, free-flowing, nice and tidy, but it is their defence that is looking much improved. Man Utd, the sheer size of the club and the momentum they have, have been building much quicker than I thought they would.

“Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba are starring, but the penalty changes the game and they can be dominant after that, but the penalty was very debatable. A giant like Man Utd have to get the top four and they look like they will get it. They don’t care about the top two at moment, they just need to keep winning games and make that top four their own. I expect United to win and nail the top four spot.”

Charlie Nicholas score prediction: 3-1
