What It Means For Manchester United’s Pereira To Score At Stretford End

Romelu Lukaku has scored four goals in his last two matches and will be right up for this so both teams to score looks a decent shout here at 3/4.

Frontman Sanchez suffered knee ligament damage in Saturday's 3-2 home win over Southampton and is facing several weeks out.

Angus Gunn saved Pogba's penalty, the France global failing to convert from 12 yards for the third time in the Premier League this season.

There was still time for more drama, though, as Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse curled home a stunning free-kick.

Lukaku had the final say when he made space for himself after collecting Fred's pass and fired home a low right-footed shot in front of the Stretford End. "I've been part of that so many times myself", the caretaker boss said.

It's a big blow for United who head to Paris looking to overhaul a 2-0 deficit from the first leg already missing the suspended Paul Pogba.

Jose Mourinho has said that he doesn't believe that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be able to maintain his start to life at Manchester United for the long-term.

"We don't think if we win everything is ideal, or if we lose it is a disaster".

"We don't know yet", said Solskjaer about Sanchez's injury, as reported by Manchester Evening News.

United now sit in the fourth position in the top-flight standings after Arsenal's draw with Tottenham Hotspur, while Southampton remain two points above the relegation zone.

"We're playing against one of the best teams in Europe with some absolute quality players but who knows?"

Palace moved further away from the relegation zone with a 3-1 win at fellow strugglers Burnley thanks to second-half goals from Michy Batshuayi and Wilfried Zaha.

And finally, League leaders, Liverpool, beat Bournemouth 4-0 back in December at the Vitality Stadium and three of City's seven victories were by that scoreline too, so I'm happy to take a chance on that for ½ point also.

"He's responded fantastically to everyone who wants to criticise him because there's no-one who practices finishing as much as he does", Solskjaer added.

"A lot of very good decisions we made in the first half and in the second half we were not scared if they put more pressure on us but we had a few crucial things".

Solskjaer's replies were by virtue of his performances, as he went on to collect 26 points from his first ten games in charge, the highest-ever by any Premier League manager.

"We had some great play at times, 3-2 we did it the hard way".
