The Southampton vs Manchester United live stream sees the Red Devils on the road at St. Mary's, seeking to reclaim their spot at the top of the Premier League table. After United's 5-1 thrashing of Leeds last week, they're heavily favored for another win, though Southampton will no doubt give it their all to make up for their loss to Everton.

For the Saints, Ralph Hasenhuttl has named an unchanged line up today, with new arrivals Tino Livramento, Romain Perraud and Adam Armstrong all keeping their spots; Armstrong, who notched their side's lone goal last week, has looked useful so far. Midfielder James Ward-Prowse also got some playing time last week, and he starts again having put an end to transfer talk by signing a new contract to stay with Southampton.

As for Manchester United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will want to maintain momentum following last week's triumph. He fielded a strong lineup, but now has even more options. Recent signee Raphael Varane has begun training with the squad, while fellow newcomer Jadon Sancho came on for the last part of the Leeds match. Both are on the bench here, but Solskjaer does make two changes, with Nemanja Matic and Anthony Martial coming in for Scott McTominay and Daniel James.

Here's how they line up:

Southampton: McCarthy, Livramento, Stephens, Salisu, Perraud, Walcott, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Djenepo, Adams, Armstrong.

Manchester United: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Matic, Fred, Greenwood, Fernandes, Pogba, Martial.

Sky Sports has the Southampton vs Manchester United live stream in the U.K., so if you already have a Sky subscription that doesn't include Sports, you'll need to pay £25/month to add those channels. Or, if you just want the soccer action, Sky is currently offering a deal on Sky Sports Football and Sky Sports Premier League that gives you both channels on top of your existing non-Sports package, for £18/month.

Whichever package you go for, you'll also gain access to coverage in 4K and HDR, so long as you also have an HDR-ready Sky Q box and HLG-compatible TV.

If you don't want to shell out for a full Sky sub, you could also consider its Now Sports streaming service. This gives you 24-hour access for £9.99 or month-long access for £33.99 but once again, Sky is currently offering a great deal here: you can sign up for six months of access for just £25/month right now. Now Sports is available on virtually every streaming device out there and is a great option if you don't already have Sky.
