Man United vs Southampton team news

Ten Hag has named the same side for the last two matches and it would be no surprise if Man United were unchanged again here, with no fresh injury concerns to contend with.

Anthony Martial is unlikely to return from a hip injury, while Christian Eriksen and Donny van de Beek remain out. Marcel Sabitzer missed out against Betis with a knock and is a doubt once again.

Carlos Alcaraz could be fit to start for Southampton, after scans showed he did not suffer any serious injury to his knee when celebrating against Leicester. Mohamed Elyounoussi would likely start should Alcaraz not be risked.

Otherwise there are not expected to be many changes for the visitors, with Tino Livramento and Juan Larios the two long-term absentees.
