Looking for a Manchester United vs Southampton live stream? You've come to the right place.

The Premier League weekend kicks off with Manchester United (opens in new tab) hoping to return to winning ways against Southampton (opens in new tab) - who they eviscerated 9-0 in this fixture last season.

United surrendered the lead for the second time in three league outings as they drew 1-1 at Burnley (opens in new tab) on Tuesday night, having been dumped out of the FA Cup by Championship Middlesbrough four days earlier.

Is this just a blip or are United not improving as interim boss Ralf Rangnick has recently said? The picture ought to become clearer this lunchtime at Old Trafford, where the Red Devils are going for a sixth straight home league win.

Southampton, on the other hand, have looked in good nick of late, holding Manchester City (opens in new tab) to a draw last month before twice coming from behind to triumph in a 3-2 thriller away to Tottenham (opens in new tab) in midweek.

Rangnick's near namesake, Ralph Hasenhuttl, hailed it as one of the best performances of his three years in charge of the Saints. Can he now steer them to successive away victories for the first time since June 2020?

These teams last met on the second weekend of the campaign back in August, with United - then under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer - coming from a goal down to draw 1-1 at St Mary's.

Team news

Having been dropped to the bench at Turf Moor, Cristiano Ronaldo will almost certainly come back into the starting 11 for this one.

Fred and Alex Telles have returned to training following Covid isolation, but United could remain without Eric Bailly after the defender returned from the Africa Cup of Nations with an ankle issue.

As for Southampton, goalkeeper Alex McCarthy and centre-back Lyanco are out with hamstring problems, and there are doubts over Nathans Redmond and Tella.

Moussa Djenepo could feature; the Malian winger was an unused substitute against Spurs, his first inclusion in a matchday squad after returning from the AFCON the previous week.

Kick-off is at 12.30pm on Saturday February 12, and UK viewers can watch live on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport Ultimate (opens in new tab). See below for international broadcast options.

VPN guide

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

If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
