Jose Mourino’s side was more than dominant in their opening game of the Premier League season against Bournemouth and of course their will be looking forward to build on it. Most of United fans can’t wait to see the new world record signing Paul Pogba having a debut for their club. Especially after he announced that he felt himself great and was fully ready to perform on a pitch. Southampton played a 1–1 draw game against Watford and it was definitely not the start Claud Puele was expecting from his team. However the Saints had a great game against mancunians at Old Trafford last season when the dutch manager Louis Van Gaal was still in charge. Still it is not the same United team any more and Puele’s side will face a tough encounter this Friday.
