Yalla Shoot :50 Man Utd Premier League opponents

SOUTHAMPTON

Southampton’s 11-year stay in the Premier League ended at the conclusion of the 2022/23 Premier League campaign, with the Saints also having been in the division from 1992 to 2005. The Reds have played the south-coast side 48 times in the top-flight, winning 29 of these meetings. Twelve have ended in a draw, while Southampton were on the winning side seven times. This fixture has produced 151 goals over the years, with United’s 9-0 victory in 2021 and 6-1 in 2001 standing out, in particular.

Classic match: United 9 Southampton 0 (2020/21)

We matched our biggest-ever Premier League victory, set in 1995 against Ipswich Town, when the Saints visited the Theatre of Dreams in 2021. Alexandre Jankewitz was sent off for Southampton just two minutes in, for a high challenge on Scott McTominay, and United were in ruthless mood. We were 4-0 up at half-time, thanks to efforts from Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Marcus Rashford, Edinson Cavani and an own goal from Saints defender Jan Bednarek. It got worse for the visitors when play resumed, with Anthony Martial grabbing a brace and Scott McTominay, Bruno Fernandes and Daniel James all getting on the scoresheet as well. A match to remember for United, and one to forget for the Saints.
