Man Utd’s two biggest threats identified by Bertrand ahead of Southampton game

Southampton defender Ryan Bertrand says stopping Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes will be the key to their upcoming match with Manchester United.

The Saints have caught the eye this season under Ralph Hasenhuttl and picked up five wins from their opening eight league games.

Following the international break, Southampton face Wolves before hosting United at the end of the month.

United have made a slow start to the campaign but earned an important 3-1 win over Everton last weekend, helped by a brace from Fernandes.

Fernandes has been involved in 15 Premier League goals in his 10 Premier League away matches since joining in January.

And he has an impressive 18 goals in all competitions this year, marking himself out as one of the best attacking players in Europe.

Rashford is United's leading scorer for the season with seven goals and he's also provided three assists.
