Team News

  • A brace from Javier Hernandez in the cup against Fulham may not be enough to see the Mexican keep his place with van Persie set to return.
  • Vidic and Ferdinand could also both start at the expense of Jones and Smalling, and Ferguson has plenty of options in almost every position with only Evans and Fletcher set to miss out.
  • The likes of Nani, Kagawa, Scholes, Giggs and Anderson will all hope to come into contention, with Ashley Young also available following an injury.
  • Club captain Adam Lallana could be back in contention after a two-month lay-off to return on the left, with Ramirez playing in a preferred central role behind Rickie Lambert.
  • Jose Fonte is still out but new signing Vegard Forren will vie for a start at centre-back with Jos Hooiveld, though back-to-back clean sheets should ensure that defence remains unchanged.
  • Guly Do Prado is likely to be the only man to drop out of the side that played in Pochettino's first game in charge against Everton, after he picked up a knee injury.

Prediction

  • United will be keen to bounce back from last weekend after a disappointing display at Spurs saw them drop two points in the title race, and Fergsuon's side looked back to their best at times against Fulham in the FA Cup.
  • Southampton, meanwhile, know that an unlikely win here could see them climb the table as high as 13th and leapfrog Fulham and Norwich, showing just how fast things can change with a couple of positive results.
  • The Saints will look to play the right way as usual and not merely contain the league leaders, though United's firepower should be too hot to handle.
