High-flying Southampton will be hoping to move back into the Premier League’s top four when they host Manchester United at St Mary’s this afternoon.
Ralph Hassenhuttl’s side have made a terrific start to the season and even went top of the division a couple of weeks ago.
United, meanwhile, are looking to make it three successive wins in the League for the first time this season after seeing off West Brom and Everton either side of the international break.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men also enjoyed a confidence-boosting win over Istanbul Basaksehir in midweek, taking a big step towards Champions League knockout qualification.
But their form has been inconsistent all season, and the Red Devils need to start picking up wins regularly if they are to challenge for a top-four finish again.
Man Utd predicted lineup: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Telles; Fred, Van de Beek; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Cavani

Man United team news and predicted lineup
Solskjaer expects to be without Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay today.
Neither midfielder trained on Friday, though Marcus Rashford, Victor Lindelof and Aaron Wan-Bissaka came through the session and are expected to be available despite being less than 100 per cent.
Phil Jones and Luke Shaw remain sidelined, but Jesse Lingard has resumed training after a period of self-isolation.
Edinson Cavani could lead the line with United looking more assured with his physical presence against Basaksehir, while Donny van de Beek will be pushing for another start after impressing in midfield.
Predicted lineup (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Telles; Fred, Van de Beek; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Cavani
