Manchester United have been in brilliant form, losing only once in their last 25 games. United manager Jose Mourinho will be looking for a win to secure himself his first proper silverware at Manchester United. The Red Devils have won both their trips to Wembley so will be confident for this fixture.
Mourinho’s squad will be without the likes of Carrick and Mkhitaryan due to injury they sustained at United’s 1-0 away win against Saint-Etienne. United skipper Wayne Rooney will be included by will most likely be on the bench.
Southampton will be pumped for heading into this game as this will be their chance to get a win a trophy since 1976. The Saints have been on a 2-week break to prepare for this fixture but have been on poor form. Claude Puel’s side have only won 1 game in their last 4 matches.
Key players such as Defender van Dijk, Austin Targett, McCarthy will all be out for this game which is a big worry for Southampton.
