Southampton midfielder Adam Lallana says that his team will look to Everton for inspiration as they try to beat Manchester United this weekend.

Southampton midfielder Adam Lallana thinks that Southampton can rise to the challenge of hosting Manchester United this weekend.

The 24-year-old said that the Saints can look to Everton's performance against the Red Devils for inspiration as they look to claim their first Premier League points of the season.

Lallana told the Daily Mail: "The experience they have got with Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and Rio Ferdinand, the list is endless really.

"Everton proved the other week that if you come out of the traps and press them and get the fans behind you then you can create chances and go on to win games.

"I think we will play our own game, creating chances and getting crosses in the box and we have a good chance of getting a result."

United head to St Mary's looking for their second league win on the spin, but will be without Wayne Rooney through injury.
