Confirmed line-ups: Manchester United vs Southampton (Premier League)

Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Jadon Sancho start as Manchester United take on Southampton in the Premier League at Old Trafford.

This is Manchester United’s first Premier League fixture since the 7-0 drubbing against Liverpool last weekend.

Speaking ahead of the fixture, Erik ten Hag outlined that the match against Southampton will be part two of United’s redemption.

Speaking to the press ahead of the fixture, Ten Hag said: “I think we already showed now several times in this season [that] this team can deal with setbacks. Today (against Real Betis) we have seen an example, before as well after Brentford for instance, after Arsenal when we bounced back, after [Manchester] City we bounced back.

“Today I will say this is part one because Sunday (against Southampton) has to come another one, but I think this team can rely on that they can bounce back – but it demands a lot of energy and a lot of togetherness from a lot of players to get the performance as we showed today.

“There is a big challenge if you want to win silverware, and as I said, as this season goes on, when you finally go for the final positions in the league for the trophies, then the challenge will be higher and then you need a strong character as a team to win that.”
