LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – The Manchester United vs Southampton 2013 game today (live score below) could feature Robin van Persie back in the latest Man United lineup. Robin van Persie sat out for the FA Cup last Saturday. But officials tell news that AVP is expected to be back on the field today. But will he deliver a goal in his sixth consecutive Premier league game this season?
Today’s Manchester United vs Southampton 2013 game (start time 12 noon PST) could help Man United to increase its spread over second and third place Man City and Chelsea. As reported previously on LALATE, United had a thirteen point spread over then second place City back in December. Now United doesn’t even have a thirteen point difference between it and number three seed Chelsea. Chelsea is boasting forty-five points, City fifty-two, and United fifty-six. United is coming off of two draws, three losses, and eighteen wins this season in the league, officials tell news.
The question is what can Mauricio Pochettino do with Southampton today. He tells his team’s news site “We have our own work ethic and our own philosophy as to where we want to take the club. We have goals and ambition, we want to work for the team to achieve those goals.”
He added “However, that does not mean we want to be anything contrary to what was being done before, it is not about that. It is more about our philosophy, how we want to take the team forward and how we want to achieve those goals.” For live score updates today click HERE.
