It's do or die for both teams at Old Trafford as they prepare for their UEFA Champions League last-16 second leg clash.

Manchester United host Southampton in the first game of the English Premier League weekend.

The hosts failed to make it three league wins in a row when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Burnley in midweek.

Southampton on the other hand had a remarkable outing, staging a mighty comeback for a famous 3-2 win at Tottenham.

A win for United will see them jump back into the top four and a loss can see them finish the weekend in 7th place.

A 1-1 draw at St Mary’s earlier this season extended Southampton’s winless run against Man United to 12 games in all competitions.
