Nathan Redmond will miss out for the Saints due to ongoing injury issues, but James Ward-Prowse and Ryan Bertrand’s own troubles seem to be behind them – as demonstrated by their starting spots against Wolves. Injured striker Danny Ings remains an absentee, however.

For United, the involvement of Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Victor Lindelof is up in the air, with the pair having sustained knocks during the week, while fellow defenders Eric Bailly and Phil Jones will be absent. In midfield, Paul Pogba is set to miss out due to an ankle injury.

Southampton: McCarthy; Walker-Peters, Bednarek, Vestergaard, Bertrand; Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Djenepo; Adams, Walcott
