Kick Off – 15.00pm Saturday 23rd January 2016

Manchester United host Southampton at St Marys Stadium on Saturday in the Premier League, as both teams look to build on wins last time out.
Despite producing an underwhelming performance last time out at Liverpool, the Red Devils recorded a 1-0 win at Anfield, as former-Everton star Wayne Rooney grabbed the only goal of the game.
United’ keeper David de Gea was arguably the hero for the Red Devils though, as he produced some crucial saves to deny the home side.
The win means that Louis van Gaal’s team sit in fifth position in Premier League table, two points behind fourth-place Tottenham. United captain Wayne Rooney has hit form of late, scoring four times in his last three Premier League appearances.
Southampton seems to have hit a spot of form themselves having recorded back-to-back wins, following Saturday’s 3-0 defeat of West Brom at St Marys. Midfielder James Ward-Prowse scored a brace, before Serbian playmaker Dusan Tadic completed the scoring.
The win means that the Saints are now looking up, rather than nervously over their shoulders at the relegation zone. Ronald Koeman’s side are now tenth in the top-flight table after consecutive wins.
The weekend signing of striker Charlie Austin should also add more attacking threat to their team.

Team Selection & News

Manchester United have a number of injury problems heading into this clash. The Red Devils continue to be without defensive trio Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo and Antonio Valencia. England international Phil Jones is also a major doubt.
Jones is joined on the doubtful list by Bastian Schweinsteiger, Michael Carrick and Ashley Young. Centre-back Paddy McNair may be drafted in at centre-back.
The visitors are without long-term casualty Florin Gardos, who is joined on the injured list by striker Jay Rodriguez. Dutch goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg is also a doubt, but would have only been on the bench with first choice Fraser Forster back to full fitness.

Possible Manchester United team line-up: De Gea, Darmian, McNair, Smalling, Blind, Schneiderlin, Fellaini, Mata, Herrera, Martial, Rooney

Possible Southampton team line-up: Forster, Cedric, Fonte, Van Dijk, Bertrand, Wanyama, Ward-Prowse, Mane, Tadic, Targett, Long

Manchester United v Southampton Match Prediction

Manchester United have looked very unconvincing this season, but they seem to have the ability to grind out results. The Saints will fancy their chances of a positive result at Old Trafford. I do believe that United will record a very narrow victory from this Premier League clash.
