CONFIRMED: Southampton v Manchester United line-ups

St Marys Southampton

Here is how Southampton and Manchester United will line-up for tonight's Premier League clash at St Mary's...

Ronald Koeman's Southampton host in-form Manchester United at St Mary's in the Premier League on Monday night, with the Dutchman hoping to get one over compatriot Louis van Gaal.

The two managers have history: Koeman was assistant to Van Gaal at Barcelona, and was later a coach at Ajax when the now-United boss joined as technical director.

It was then that the pair fell out, resulting in Van Gaal referring to Koeman as weak and "that boy" in his autobiography, but his former apprentice insists there is now "less ice" in their relationship - we shall see.

United have an excellent record against the Saints, winning nine and losing just one of the last 12 league meetings, but have earned three points just once on their travels this season.

Nevertheless, Van Gaal's side will be confident going into the match, following a run of four straight wins which has seen them climb up to fifth in the table on 25 points, one behind their opponents in fourth.

Southampton, meanwhile, have seen their excellent start to the season stall after back-to-back defeats to Manchester City and Arsenal, respectively, with tonight's match posing another tough test for their European credentials.

It promises to be an action-packed game, with the two sides lining up as follows.
