  • Southampton have enjoyed a positive week having beaten Brighton in the league last weekend and edging past Fulham in the League Cup.
  • Ralph Hasenhuttl did suffer one blow on Tuesday night as Redmond picked up an ankle injury and he has been ruled out here.
  • Despite featuring midweek, Djenepo is also an absentee due to a muscular issue so it is likely that Boufal will come into the side.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Gunn; Valery, Bednarek, Vestergaard, Bertrand; Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Hojbjerg, Boufal; Adams, Ings

Unavailable: Redmond (Injured), Djenepo (Injured)

Doubtful: Bertrand (Injured), Obafemi (Injured)


  • Man Utd slipped to an unexpected defeat at home to Crystal Palace last weekend to dampen the enthusiasm after a bright start to the season.
  • They suffered two injury blows in that match as Shaw is out for several weeks while Martial is also missing.
  • Young is expected to come in at left-back while Greenwood and Mata have a good chance of replacing Martial and the out-of-form Lingard.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Young; McTominay, Pogba; Greenwood, Mata, James; Rashford

Unavailable: Bailly (Injured), Sanchez (Out of favour), Smalling (Out of favour), Dalot (Injured), Fosu-Mensah (Injured), Shaw (Injured), Martial (Injured)



Both of these teams have been somewhat unpredictable in the league so far this season and their performances have been inconsistent. United are not helped by a couple of injuries but they will go for the win and that should turn this match into an open encounter with goals at both ends of the pitch.
