How to Watch Manchester United vs. Southampton

The Saints topped Crystal Palace 1-0 in their most recent Premier League outing.

Jose Mourinho has been unable to shed any further light on the severity of Paul Pogba's hamstring injury at Manchester United.

Mourinho's United are topping the Premier League along with arch-rivals Manchester City with 13 points from five games!

Southampton's 24 Premier League defeats in this fixture is their worst record against any opponent.

Martial started in United's mid-week game against Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup and even got a goal but with Marcus Rashford scoring a brace, it is likely that the English striker will retain his place in the starting XI for their trip to Southampton on Saturday.

Manchester United have won 16 of the last 22 meetings, losing just three.

The Belgium worldwide converted a rebound in the first half to give Jose Mourinho's side a fifth win in six Premier League games and keep pace with Manchester City at the top of the table.

Who will come out on top in the battle of the managers Mauricio Pellegrino or José Mourinho?

However, the Red Devils have triumphed only once in six away league fixtures (D3, L2).

Midway through the first half a chant to the tune of Made of Stone was heard at Old Trafford, with a pocket of fans chanting about Lukaku but having appeared to tweak the words.

United contacted relevant bodies to see whether the song could be categorised as racism by the letter of the law, while saying in a statement they have a "zero tolerance towards all forms of discrimination".

Suffice it to say, Southampton have not exactly impressed this season, making them exactly the kind of team that Manchester United have tended to feast on this season.
