High-flying Southampton are heading to Old Trafford this weekend.

Rejoice, TBB match previews are back! And rejoice yet further as Manchester United return to action on Sunday, with Premier League high-flyers Southampton heading to Old Trafford in search of revenge for the Reds' smash-and-grab 2-1 victory away at St. Mary's last month. The Saints are only a point in arrears of United in fourth place, and Ronald Koeman will want to make sure his players don't give an inch against his arch-rival Louis van Gaal.

Them

Southampton are a tough, physical team that seek to work the ball quickly down the flanks after winning it back. Two talented midfielders, Victor Wanyama and Morgan Schneiderlin, anchor the side behind an industrious front four. Dušan Tadić and James Ward-Prowse look set to flank central playmaker Steven Davis, who managed to make a mockery of Michael Carrick by running straight through him for Southampton's goal at St. Mary's a few weeks back. Italian striker Graziano Pellè is a defender's nightmare, with his aerial prowess making it particularly difficult to defend against crosses. Just as well we've got loads of fit full-backs, right?!

Out: Jay Rodriguez, Jack Cork, Sadio Mané, Emmanuel Mayuka, Maya Yoshida. In doubt: Nathaniel Clyne.

Us

Ah. Actually, we may well have no full-backs at all. Daley Blind, Luke Shaw, Antonio Valencia and Rafael da Silva are all still doubtful, even though they're all apparently on the brink of returning from injuries. One man who's definitely unavailable is Ashley Young, while there's also no word on a potential return for Marcos Rojo. Quite whether we'll shape up with a back three, four or seven this weekend is anyone's guess.
