United face in-form Southampton


Southampton welcome Manchester United to the south coast on Sunday afternoon, as Ralph Hasenhuttl's men look to carry on their quality performances against an in-form Manchester United side, report agencies.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men have enjoyed an upturn in fortunes recently, as they have come out triumphant in their last three games. However, they come up against a Saints side who, since losing their opening two league games, have won five and drawn two.

The hosts, who have won their last three home league games 2-0, play host to a team that have won their last seven away games in the Premier League and can set a new record of eight on Sunday. 

It's going to be tough to call. Danny Ings (knee) is still absent for Southampton, while Nathan Redmond is also out with a hamstring problem. For United, Marcus Rashford, Victor Lindelof and Aaron Wan Bissaka should all be fit to start. However, Luke Shaw is still out (hamstring) and Solskjaer admits Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay will likely not feature due to knocks.

As for Solskjaer's men, they have the chance to make history with eight consecutive away wins in the Premier League. United have had a little resurgence since the troubling week in which they lost to Arsenal at Old Trafford and away at Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League. 

They've won their last three, which will have instilled some confidence - especially the great showing in Europe on Tuesday night against Istanbul Basaksehir.

Solskjaer will go into this tie with high hopes, given the side's away form in the league, but will have to contend with the prospect of running low on fitness. 

The Norwegian's men will be playing their sixth match this month, while it will be Southampton's fourth.
