Both of these sides enjoyed poor starts to the new Premier League season that have improved in the past week. 

Manchester United picked up their first win (and first points) with a 2-1 victory over Liverpool last weekend — an impressive turnaround on their previous two games, which saw them lose to Brighton and Brentford. That suggests Erik ten Hag's revolution is starting to gain pace, and the team should also be buoyed by the arrival of new £70m signing Casemiro, who is on the bench today. 

Southampton, meanwhile, were awful in their first game against Tottenham, but have recovered since then to draw with Leeds and beat Leicester. They still look short of options in a few positions, particularly up front, but two goals from Che Adams last week at least pointed the way to a solution, and he starts here. 

Here's how they line up:

Southampton: Bazunu, Djenepo, Salisu, Bella-Kotchap, Walker-Peters, Lavia, Ward-Prowse, A Armstrong, Elyounoussi, Aribo, Adams.

Manchester United: De Gea, Malacia, Martinez, Varane, Dalot, McTominay, Eriksen, Sancho, Fernandes, Elanga, Rashford.

Will either side push on with a second successive victory here? Find out by watching a Southampton vs Man Utd live stream.
