Manchester United welcome Southampton to Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon as they continue to hunt down a top four Premier League finish.

The hosts go in to the fixture off the back of a comfortable 3-1 victory at Crystal Palace in midweek, a game which saw Romelu Lukaku bag a double before Ashley Young sealed the result. The Red Devils are heavily depleted by injuries right now, yet Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could still field a dangerous team when the Saints come to visit.

David de Gea (GK) - The Spaniard's future at Old Trafford has been in doubt all season and this looks to have impacted his form between the sticks. De Gea has already conceded eight more goals this term than he did last time around. However, he remains a firm fixture in this United side.

Ashley Young (RB) - The former winger looks fully adjusted to his role in defence, offering consistency and drive in equal measure. This change of position has not altered his ability going forward, though, with his goal at Selhurst Park demonstrating a continued attacking prowess.

Victor Lindelof (CB) - The Swede came in for heavy criticism during the early stages of this campaign. He was caught out on numerous occasions as United made a sluggish start to the season, yet now looks solid in the heart of the defense.  

Eric Bailly (CB) - Bailly offers greater mobility than counterpart Chris Smalling. This should prove valuable when trying to shackle the quicksilver Nathan Redmond, who is likely to be Southampton's main attacking outlet.
Luke Shaw (LB) - Lukaku recently hailed the young full-back as United's 'player of the season' after Shaw provided the assist for the Belgian's opener against Palace. Regardless of the team's fortunes, he has looked assured down the left flank and has consistently reached a high level of performance.
