19.8. PREMIER LEAGUE: MANCHESTER UNITED - SOUTHAMPTON

Manchester United started the Jose Mourinho era with a comprehensive 1-3 win away at Bournemouth. This will be United's first competitive match at Old Trafford under Mourinho. Meanwhile, Southampton started their season with an unconvincing 1-1 draw at home against Watford, despite the Saints controlling the game for most of its duration.

20:00 MANCHESTER UNITED - SOUTHAMPTON 

Manchester United probably haven't gotten their engine properly running under Mourinho as of yet, and a plethora of new signings will take time to gel. However, their opening game of the season against Bournemouth showed signs of good things to come. This United team that scored three times and only concede once looked far more dangerous than that of last season's at any point in the campaign.

Another notable thing about the situation is that United played the match without their superstar summer signing Paul Pogba, while Henrikh Mkhitaryan only entered the fold for the final 15 minutes. Pogba may make his second United debut against the Saints, but it's still unclear whether Mourinho will trust him with a spot in the starting eleven, as Pogba hasn't played a competitive match since the final of the European Championships.

Southampton lost three key players and manager Ronald Koeman in the summer, which has meant a summer of rebuilding at St. Mary's. However, the Saints have become accustomed to this in previous seasons, and yet they still almost always occupy a top-half position in the league come the end of the season. New manager Claude Puel managed to avoid defeat in his first match in English football, but the Frenchman won't have been happy with their finishing. Southampton edged both shots (24-5) and shots on goal (6-1) by clear margins, yet still only managed a draw.

Mourinho's men are undoubtedly the favourites in the first Friday night match of the season. The Red Devils' new signings have had a flying start in the Premier League, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Eric Bailly in particular impressing in their first matches in red. United are still a work in progress, but it still looks like the Saints are in for a long night's work at Old Trafford. Mourinho has only lost nine times in his career at home, an impressive feat given his 257 games in charge of top flight sides.
