Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Southampton

Sports Mole looks at the latest injury and suspension news for Manchester United ahead of Saturday's Premier League match against Southampton.

Manchester United play host to Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon looking to maintain the pressure on their rivals in the race for fourth place.

United are yet to lose in the top flight under caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and the North-West giants continued their strong run of form with a 3-1 win over Crystal Palace on Wednesday night.

However, Solskjaer is currently having to deal with a large number of injuries, while United face Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League four days after the game with the Saints.

Here, Sports Mole looks at United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their encounter with Ralph Hasenhuttl's side.
