Manchester United vs Southampton team news

Southampton are in a buoyant mood after their dramatic, come-from-behind victory away at Tottenham Hostpur on Wednesday night.

It’s another away trip for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men on early Saturday afternoon, as the Saints head up north to take on Ralph Ragnick’s Manchester United at Old Trafford.

United’s midweek result saw them disappointingly draw against Burnley.

In terms of team news, it’s a mixed bag for Southampton.

Tino Livramento could return to either the starting XI after recovering from his knee injury and being rested against Spurs. However, Nathan Redmond remains sidelined with his ankle knock.

As for United, Brazil international Alex Telles could be set for a return after completing his Covid-19 isolation period, though compatriot Fred will miss out after testing positive for the virus.

Meanwhile, Eric Bailly and Nemanja Matic are both out with ankle and shin injuries respectively.
