After dusting themselves down in midweek in the wake of a humiliating day at Anfield, Manchester United resume their Premier League top four push against Southampton.

The Red Devils suffered a shock 7-0 defeat away to their biggest rivals Liverpool last weekend to end a good run of form, but responded by thumping Real Betis 4-1 in the Europa League on Thursday.

Erik ten Hag’s side are third, with a seven-point cushion in the top four race, while Southampton are battling at the other end of the table.

Saints beat Leicester 1-0 last time out in a huge result for their survival bid, but they go into the weekend second-bottom in the standings, one point from safety.

United won the first meeting of the season 1-0 at St. Mary’s back in August, when a Bruno Fernandes goal made the difference.

Kick-off is at 2.00pm GMT. Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League wherever you are.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a Premier League fixture, then you won't be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Premier League, FourFourTwo currently recommends:

ExpressVPN (opens in new tab)

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee (opens in new tab)
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS5 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
