Southampton welcome Manchester United to St. Mary’s on Sunday (Watch live on SyFy at 10:00 a.m. ET and online via Live Extra) on the final of the season.
United are ready to end their season of woe as Ryan Giggs takes charge of the final game in his stint as interim manager. The Red Devils can finish in the top six with a win and a Tottenham slip up, which would mean qualification for next season’s Europa League.
As for the hosts, Saints have had their best every PL campaign with an eighth placed finished secured and a record points tally. Mauricio Pochettino’s future, and that of many of his star players, hangs in the balance as it could be a farewell down on the South Coast on Sunday.
In team news Southampton start with Rickie Lambert who has recovered from injury and replaces Sam Gallagher, while Manchester United make seven changes to the team that beat Hull as Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic partner each other at center back for one last time.
