Manchester United are looking to make it two wins out of two this season as they travel to Southampton this afternoon.

United started the campaign with a bang as they thrashed Leeds 5-1 at Old Trafford last weekend to finish gameweek 1 top of the table, with Bruno Fernandes scoring a hat-trick and Paul Pogba providing four assists.

Fernandes and Pogba unsurprisingly keep their places, while Mason Greenwood once again leads the line after a fine display and a key goal against Leeds.

Further back, Fred and Scott McTominay impressed in their ‘McFred’ holding midfield partnership, but the Scot drops to the bench as Nemanja Matic joins the Brazilian in the centre of the park.

Edinson Cavani, Eric Bailly and Phil Jones are all building fitness but none are involved this afternoon.

As for confirmed absentees, Marcus Rashford is sidelined following surgery on a long-standing shoulder injury, while Alex Telles is likely out for the rest of the month with an ongoing ankle problem.
