Looking ahead to Saturday’s match, Jamie Redknapp has predicted a win for surprise package Southampton over Newcastle.
Redknapp though believes that United have been ‘really good’ under John Carver and were unlucky not to get something from last weekend’s Chelsea match.
Under Carver Newcastle did very well in the first half against both Burnley and Chelsea but were woeful at Leicester and shocking in the second half of that Burnley game, when even the caretaker manager admitted the visitors had deserved to win by the end.
A great opportunity for John Carver tomorrow though, because a win over form team Southampton would give him a massive boost as he has yet again made clear he’s desperate to be appointed permanently.
Jamie Redknapp speaking to Sky Sports;
“Southampton are on an incredible run, I have been so impressed with what they have done this year. I think everybody at the start of the season expected them to be in a relegation fight, certainly not in fight to finish top four.
“I think that result at (Man) United last week, which to an extent they deserved as they defended really well – I expect them to go to Newcastle and win”
Really good under Carver;
“John Carver’s performances have been really good at Newcastle, they played excellent at Chelsea and really unlucky not to get first goal and it might have made a difference.”
