  14. Southampton v Manchester United: MOTD Commentator's Notes

    Jonathan Pearce

    BBC Match of the Day commentator

    "Every time I climb up to the St Mary's gantry a Saints fan asks me: 'Will we be okay this season?'. I've always reassured him. In all honesty I can't do so right now.

    "Any side that has scored just one home goal from free play in 725 minutes, with eight home scoring blanks in nine matches, is bound to find trouble. They have to get Charlie Austin fully fit and firing.

    "Manchester United look far too strong for them. They average three goals a game. Romelu Lukaku alone has more than the whole Southampton side. Jose Mourinho looks like the cat that got the cream.

    "It's 14 years since a Saints home win in this fixture. I can't see that hoodoo being broken."
