Manchester United will attempt to get back to winning ways in the Premier League and in the process avoid losing touch with the top four as they take on Southampton Fc in the day’s evening kick-off.

Jose Mourinho’s side are already 14 points off leaders Manchester City and an alarming seven points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, with a significant up-turn in form required if they are to get back into the top-four reckoning. They will have to do so though without Alexis Sanchez, who has been ruled out for the rest of 2018 with a hamstring injury.

Southampton meanwhile are still without Danny Ings due to injury while Ryan Bertand is also a doubt. Follow the live action below.

Player to watch…

Anthony Martial: The striker is United’s top scorer this season with seven goals, as Romelu Lukaku struggles for form. The 22-year-old, who has scored four of United’s last five Premier League away goals, will be looking to impress against a Southampton side who are struggling for points as the pressure increases on manager Mark Hughes. To make matters better, Saints have conceded 24 goals in the league. Ideal hunting conditions for the Frenchman.
