Southampton v Man United

Premier League, Saturday, December 1, KO 5.30pm. Live on BT Sport 1

They are one and two in the betting for next manager to leave but there's no doubt Mark Hughes is under more pressure than Jose Mourinho.

So when Southampton welcome Man United on saturday which boss will leave holding the hammer and nails?

My money's on Sparky's fate being sealed by one of his former clubs – no matter how ordinary the Red Devils look.

Mourinho, 10-1 to win the Premier League sack race, insisted after last week's 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace his players don't fear playing at Old Trafford.

He was spared by having to repeat those words after Marouane Fellaini's injury-time strike earned a 1-0 win against Young Boys in the Champions League.

The atmosphere was more tepid than toxic but there's no doubt players will be more relaxed at St Mary's against a side with just one win this season.

Last week's 3-2 defeat at Fulham means tonight could be Hughes's last chance and it's difficult to ignore United at a price of 17-20 with 888sport.

If Man City were heading there they'd be something like 1-3 or 1-4 – and that sums up the gulf between the rivals just now.

United don't have City's firepower but Saints have been leaking goals – conceding three to Fulham was worrying.

Consider United and over 2.5 match goals at 2-1 or United and both to score at 14-5 with 888sport.

Saints have netted in their last three – including a 6-1 loss at Man City – and it was Stuart Armstrong who hit both last week. The Scotland midfielder is 23-4 with 888sport to net again.
