    Southampton had a major boost in the week when captain James Ward-Prowse signed a new five-year contract.

    The 26-year-old set-piece specialist has made 323 first-team appearances for Saints, scoring 33 goals.

    Having already signed Danny Ings from St Mary’s, Aston Villa had a bid of £25m rejected for Ward-Prowse earlier this summer.

    But the midfielder has now committed his long-term future to the club he joined as an eight-year-old.

    "A new chapter begins now for me," said Ward-Prowse.

    "It's probably the first time in my career that I've had that link away and that talk, but I was very keen to sit down and talk to the club.

    “It's worked both ways; they've sat down and told me their admiration for me and the way they want me to lead the team.

    “I can't put into the words the opportunities and chances that they've given me and I'm incredibly grateful for that.

    "I'm not finished yet here. I still have a lot left to give."

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Marcus Rashford is ‘very happy’ with his shoulder surgery and is optimistic of being back in action by October.

    The forward underwent the procedure after struggling with the issue during most of last season and the summer's European Championships. 

    Solskjaer said: “He seemed very happy with the surgery. 

    “He's working in the gym, we see him every day, so he'll be chomping at the bit when it gets nearer to the time when he can come back.

    “Of course, any time you're off with an injury is a hard time but it's also time to reflect and find yourself again.

    "That's what we hope is going to happen to Marcus."

    Southampton have no new injury concerns with Sam McQueen and Will Smallbone their only absentees.

    For United, Marcus Rashford is still out, but Edinson Cavani is back in training and new signings Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane could start.

    “Edinson’s joined in, Raphael’s joined in and we’re getting fitter and fitter,” said Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

    “They’ve worked well. They’ve had minutes. We’ve had a very good week.”

    Amad and Eric Bailly have returned to training after their time at the Olympics, while Jesse Lingard is fit after recovering from Covid.

    Southampton host Manchester United in the Premier League with the two sides encountering differing fortunes on the opening weekend of the season.

    United couldn't have asked for a better start, thumping rivals Leeds 5-1 at Old Trafford, thanks largely to a brilliant treble from Bruno Fernandes.

    Paul Pogba also chipped in with four assists, although that still wasn’t good enough for Graeme Souness…

    Saints were beaten 3-1 at Everton, despite leading at half-time thanks to a debut strike from summer signing Adam Armstrong.

    It doesn’t bode well for the hosts today. They’ve beaten United just once in 13 league games at St Mary's (D4, L8), while they’re winless in the past 10.

    Saints have also kept just one clean sheet in their last 22 league matches, conceding 52 goals during that period.

    If United avoid defeat today, they’ll match Arsenal's top-flight record of 27 games unbeaten away from home.

    We’ll have confirmation of today’s teams shortly plus lots more build-up ahead of the 2pm kick-off.
