Erik ten Hag has left Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Maguire on the bench again today for the lunchtime kickoff against Southampton.
— Manchester United (@ManUtd) August 27, 2022
The news is particularly biting for Ronaldo as Anthony Martial is ruled out through injury in the centre-forward position.
The team is unchanged from that match.
Victor Lindelof is still absent with injury but is expected to be fit for next week. The prognosis on Martial’s troubled Achilles heel is, as yet, unknowm.
The Southampton side for the match is:
Bazunu; Walker-Peters, Bella-Kotchap, Salisu, Djenepo; Lavia, Ward-Prowse; Elyounoussi, Aribo, Armstrong, Adams
Subs: McCarthy, Lyanco, Romeu, Perraud, Armstrong, Mara, Diallo, Bednarek, Valery.
A win for United could put them up to sixth in the table, at least for a few hours.
