Manchester United vs Southampton

Manchester United vs Southampton – Manchester United hosts Southampton at the Old Trafford on 30th December, Saturday in their final English Premier League game of the year.

Southampton, who lost 5-2 to Tottenham Hotspur in their last game and have not won any of their last six league games, are fourteenth in the league standings with nineteen points.

Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini, Antonio Valencia, Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling are sidelined through injuries.
