Davis ready for Old Trafford

Manchester United may be sitting ninth in the table but Southampton's Steven Davis believes a trip to Old Trafford is still the toughest test in the Premier League.

Steven Davis: United is still the toughest test

Steven Davis: United is still the toughest test

Southampton are on a run of four successive wins in all competitions and, while confident of getting a result in the north west, Davis rejects the notion that United are on the slide.

"For us, I think it is a game to look forward to," he said. "I am sure Man United won't take us lightly after the start we've made.

"These are stadiums you want to play at and players you want to test yourself against.

"I think it is the biggest test. Every Premier League game is a test because you're coming up against top players, but I think coming up against Man United, obviously being champions, is a game we can look forward to.

"The defence has been the platform for our success so far. The last couple of games we've managed to score a couple of goals as well.

"Last year we went up to Old Trafford and came away feeling disappointed not to get a result.

"We played some really good stuff, especially in the second half, and we can take confidence from that and hopefully put in a similar performance and get a better result.

"We can go there, try to play the way we can, and if we do then we are more than capable of getting a result."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
