Did you make your United Predictions for Southampton away?

A record number of fans had played the game for our Premier League opener against Leeds and, amazingly, the movement is growing, because that tally was smashed once again on matchday two.

It's so simple to play: just register your starting XI, formation, first scorer, correct score and Man of the Match. Your correct predictions all earn points and the fan with the highest score for each matchday wins a signed shirt.

Reds supporter Juan Cardenas from Colombia claim the prize on matchday one, so who is our latest champion?

It gives us great pleasure to announce Theophilus Asamoah Gyapong, a diehard United fan from Ghana, as the recipient of our prize with a perfect score of 125 points. 

The 20-year-old was spot on with his predictions and, impressively, foresaw Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's starting XI - which is some achievement, considering most supporters expected new signings Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho to start.

Theophilus backed Mason Greenwood to score first and win our Man-of-the-Match award, as well as the 1-1 draw itself - which was a little pessimistic, but we'll forgive him!
