What is the team news?

Scott McTominay is Man Utd's biggest doubt for the game after coming off during the Arsenal clash with stomach cramps.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could tinker with his starting XI again, handing Nemanja Matic a potential start in midfield.

Anthony Martial will likely start from the bench again, however, with Edinson Cavani the preferred striking option.

Southampton have multiple injuries to contend with, with both Jannik Vestergaard and Kyle Walker-Peters both on the sidelines still.

    DANGER MAN

    Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani came off the bench to score twice and assist once against Southampton in their 3-2 win in November.

    The last Red Devils player to score 2+ goals in consecutive Premier League appearances against an opponent was Cristiano Ronaldo versus West Ham in October 2008.

    TABLE CHECK

    HEAD-TO-HEAD

    Manchester United are unbeaten in their last nine Premier League meetings with Southampton (W4 D5), though are looking to complete their first league double over them since their title winning campaign of 2012-13.

    Man Utd have come from behind to win 10 different Premier League games against Southampton, including a 3-2 victory in the reverse fixture at St Mary’s this season.

    No side has come from behind to beat another more often in the competition’s history (Man Utd also 10 vs Newcastle).

    Having lost 13 of their first 14 Premier League away games against Man Utd (D1), Southampton have lost just two of their last seven visits to Old Trafford (W2 D3).

    POOR FORM

    Southampton have lost their last three Premier League games, more than they had in their previous 15 (W8 D5 L2). They last lost four in a row in the competition in April 2018.

    Southampton have also failed to score in each of their last two Premier League away games, having only failed to find the net in two of their previous 25 on the road.

    Saints last went three without scoring in October 2018 under Mark Hughes.

    GOOD EVENING

    And welcome to the live blog for Manchester United vs Southampton!

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men are on a rather poor run of form, winning just one of their last four top-flight games.

    United were held to a 0-0 draw against rivals Arsenal last Saturday at the Emirates – failing to bounce back with a win after falling to defeat against relegation strugglers Sheffield the game before.

    Likewise, the Saints are having a bad spell losing three of their previous four Premier League games.

    Midfielder Scott McTominay is a doubt for tonight's game after coming off against Arsenal with stomach cramps.

    Solskjaer will most likely change his starting XI and could hand starts to defender Eric Bailly and Nemanja Matic.

    Goal-scorer Edinson Cavani could be rested tonight after the veteran forward played a full 90 minutes at the weekend – which could hand Anthony Martial a start.

    And for Ralph Hassenhuttl's Saints, Mohammed Salisu, Nathan Tella, Michael Obafemi and William Smallbone are still injured.

    Jannik Vestergaard and Kyle Walker-Peters are also expected to miss out through injury.

    Theo Walcott is also a doubt after picking up a knock against Aston Villa at the weekend.

    Hassenhuttl is likely to stick with the majority of the side that started against Villa.

    The teamsheets are due to be released in half an hour, so don't go anywhere!
