Manchester United vs. Southampton Team and Injury News:

Southampton arrive at Old Trafford in good form, but there are few sides looking better than Manchester United at the moment.

In fact, United would top the league if it had started in February.

Saints are without Moussa Djenepo, Sofiane Boufal and Yan Valery due to injuries. It’s thought they are unlikely to play again this season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named the same United starting line up in their last four league games.

The Red Devils have no new injury concerns and are expected to field the same starting XI as they aim to finish in the Premier League table’s top four for a Champions League spot.
