Team News

Southampton

  • Southampton haven’t tasted victory over Manchester United at St. Mary’s since August 2003, when James Beattie scored the decisive goal of the game with just two minutes left to play.
  • The Saints have struggled to fill the void left by Graziano Pelle, with Nathan Redmond’s seven league goals the highest scoring tally from an individual player.

Manchester United

  • Manchester United have won only one of their last five games in all competitions, but that victory was enough to give Jose Mourinho’s men the chance to qualify for the UEFA Champions League via a victory in the Europa League Final against Ajax.
  • While the goals haven’t exactly flown in this season (52 goals from 36 games), United have maintained the league’s second-most sturdy defence, conceding 29 goals and keeping 15 clean sheets in the Premier League.
