Southampton 0-1 Manchester United: Lukaku Opens Scoring

SOUTHAMPTON, Sporting Alert — Manchester United and Southampton starting lineups for today’s English Premier League game at St. Mary’s Stadium.

Kickoff time for this one is 10 a.m. ET and you can watch live streaming coverage on NBC Sports Gold.

Jose Mourinho has decided to stick with the same Manchester United starting team that beat Everton 4-0 in the last Premier League outing, which means Marouane Fellaini keeps his place.

Fellaini will continue to partner Nemanja Matic in central midfield, while Ashley Young also keeps his place at left-back ahead of Daley Blind, who is on the bench.

Marcus Rashford, a two-goal hero in the league cup in midweek, moves back to the left-hand side of the attack as Romelu Lukaku leads the line.

Despite his Man of the Match performance against Burton Albion in the week, Anthony Martial is only on the bench again today for Manchester United.

David De Gea, Antonio Valencia, Eric Bailly, Phil Jones, Juan Mata and Henrikh Mkhitaryan all start as well.

Meanwhile, Virgil van Dijk is on the bench again for Southampton as it’s an unchanged side from the team that picked up the 1-0 win at Crystal Palace last Saturday.

Ryan Bertrand, Oriol Romeu, Dusan Tadic, Nathan Redmond and Shane Long are among the starters today for the Saints.
