Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has made one change to his side for the Premier League clash against Southampton this afternoon, with Cameron Borthwick-Jackson coming in for the injured Ashley Young.

Borthwick-Jackson starts at left-back following Young’s injury and Matteo Darmian switches over to the right.

Marouane Fellaini lines up in the middle of the park alongside Morgan Schneiderlin, with Jesse Lingard, Ander Herrera and Anthony Martial occupying the attacking positions.

Meanwhile, Adnan Januzaj makes the substitute’s bench after an encouraging performance for the club’s U21s this week. Along with Juan Mata and Memphis Depay, van Gaal has options if things aren’t going United’s way at St Mary’s. He will be thankful he does as it is crucial that United build on the win against Liverpool last time out.
