Lallana insists Southampton not overawed by Man Utd challenge

Adam Lallana insists Southampton will face Manchester United without fear today.

Southampton are still without a point after defeats to Manchester City and Wigan but, despite being aware of the threat posed by United, Lallana believes the Saints can come out on top if they play like Everton did.

He said: "You look around the pitch and they have got strength in every area, obviously (Wayne) Rooney was injured but (Robin) Wan Persie comes in.

"The experience they have got; (Paul) Scholes, (Ryan) Giggs and (Rio) Ferdinand, the list is endless really. I think if we concentrate on what we are good at, we are at home I think we have got a chance of getting a result.

"I think Everton proved the other week that if you come out of the traps and press them and get the fans behind you then you can create chances and go on to win games.

"I think we will play our own game... create chances and get crosses in the box and we have a good chance."
