Manchester United are still without Paul Pogba (hamstring), Marcos Rojo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (both knee).

Manchester United have scored more Premier League goals in the 80th minute or later this season (nine) than 17 of the other 19 clubs have managed overall.

Southampton have lost 24 Premier League matches against Man Utd (W7 D5); four more defeats than they have suffered against any other opponent

Eight different players have found the net for United in their opening five PL matches - more than any other side, and twice as many as they had at this stage last season.

Romelu Lukaku needs one goal to equal Louis Saha's record for most goals scored after six PL appearances for United (six).
