Southampton vs Manchester United: Confirmed starting XI

Jose Mourinho has made five changes to his starting XI for Manchester United’s clash with Southampton.

Romelu Lukaku gets a chance to end his miserable goal drought up front after Alexis Sanchez sustained an “aggressive muscle injury” in training on Thursday.

Here is the full starting line-up and bench for a crucial Premier League game.
