Manchester United will play their first away game of the Premier League season this weekend.

They are preparing for a trip to St Mary’s to face Ralph Hasenhuttl’s Southampton.

United won both meetings between the sides last season, and both were memorable for different reasons.

In November, Edinson Cavani inspired a comeback from 2-0 down to win 3-2, while February’s reverse meeting was a record equalling 9-0 victory.

Southampton v Man Utd team news

Marcus Rashford and Alex Telles will definitely miss this game.

Jadon Sancho could be in line for his first United start, and Raphael Varane may also make his debut.

Phil Jones made his injury comeback in a behind closed doors friendly against Burnley on Tuesday but it would be a surprise to see him on the bench here.

Our prediction: Southampton v United

United should be winning this game. Southampton struggled badly in the second half against Everton and have not yet replaced Jannik Vestergaard at the back.

A strong start to the season is vital for United and there will be no excuses for not getting all three points here.

A clean sheet would be a welcome bonus, although James Ward-Prowse’s delivery caused United problems last season and will offer a stern test of Eric Ramsey’s work over the summer.

Our prediction: Southampton 0-2 United
