Southampton welcome Manchester United to St Mary Stadium in the week four of the Premier League encounter on Saturday early kickoff as Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men seek to take advantage of the Red Devils’ shock defeat to Crystal Palace last weekend.  Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side suffered their first-ever Premier League loss to eagles last week, with former Chelsea star Patrick van Aanholt hitting a last-gasp winner at Old Trafford to pile pressure of the Norwegian coach with four points after three fixtures of the new season.Meanwhile, Southampton opened their account for the season with a 2-0 victory against ​Brighton with summer signing Moussa Djenepo and Nathan Redmond were on target in Amex Stadium last time out in the league.  Team News  Southampton’s Redmond is out for at least two weeks after injuring his ankle in Tuesday’s Carabao Cup win and joins Dejenpo on the sidelines, while Nigerian descent Michael Obafemi is likely to be absent due to cramp he suffered in midweek, However, Ryan Bertrand is back in training but it remains to be seen if he is fit for Manchester United fixture.Solskjaer will be without Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial for the to St Mary Stadium due to hamstring and thigh injuries respectively after both players were injured in the 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace last weekend.Diogo Dalot will also miss out from the game through injury but he should be back after the international break, while Eric Bailly and Timothy Fosu-Mensah remain unavailable, with both players still recovering from knee operations.  Head to Head  Manchester United were lucky to come away with just a 2-2 draw in the same fixture at St Mary’s last season having produced a weak performance and had to rely on a late Romelu Lukaku goal to beat them at home in March.Indeed, St Mary’s has often proved to be a location where United play poorly but manage to secure a result: a 1-0 win in 2017 under Jose Mourinho, a pair of victories under Louis van Gaal despite conceding numerous chances, and that remarkable 3-2 win in 2012 secured by a Robin van Persie hat-trick.You would have to go back to 2003 for the last time United lost away to Southampton, although the former did claim a pair of 1-0 wins at Old Trafford in consecutive seasons under Ronald Koeman in 2015 and 2016.  Recent Form  A sub-par performance against the Eagles saw Red Devils lose their unbeaten record for 2019-20, having previously won and drawn their opening two fixtures of the campaign.Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba managed to miss spot-kicks in the Palace defeat and the previous week’s stalemate at ​Wolves respectively but the fallout from both has only succeeded in adding more strain on Solskjaer’s shoulders.If there were any suggestions that Hasenhuttl’s job was under threat, they have been put to rest by consecutive wins for Southampton, who recorded away victories at Brighton and Fulham in the space of three days.New signing Djenepo was a standout figure against the Seagulls, breaking the deadlock with a fine curling finish beyond the reach of Matt Ryan.  Manager Quotes   Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl via BBC: “We are gaining more confidence after the last two games.

I think with Manchester United you always have pressure. I expect their best possible team to play against us.”Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: “Clean sheets are always the foundation to build on and we started really well against Chelsea, but we know the two [goals conceded] against Palace should have been avoided.”We hope to go down there [to Southampton] and look stronger at the back.”  Southampton possible starting lineup:  Gunn; Valery, Bednarek, Vestergaard, Bertrand; Romeu, Hojberg, Ward-Prowse; Boufal, Adams, Ings.
