Manchester United travel to Southampton with their customary roles reversed.
Louis van Gaal's side trail the Saints by a point in the Premier League table, as his Dutch compatriot Ronald Koeman has worked wonders on the south coast with a completely revamped Southampton squad.
But order can be restored this evening if United take all three points as they would leapfrog Southampton and West Ham and take third spot with 15 games played.
Although still mathematically in with a shout of challenging Manchester City and Chelsea for the title, Van Gaal's stated aim remains the reinstatement of Manchester United back into the Champions League.
Despite a rocky start, they now look on track to do just that and are beginning to get their squad back healthy at just the right time as the busy winter fixture list nears.
They will be without Angel Di Maria this evening, as the Argentine limped off in the first-half against Hull City but Wayne Rooney returns to the starting lineup.
Radamel Falcao is only good enough for 20 minutes tonight, which means Rooney will play alongside Robin van Persie up front.
Midfield and defence
Marouane Fellaini was a doubt after he was limited in training on Friday but there's no reason to think he won't continue in the starting lineup after his goal against Stoke City.
Juan Mata is also coming into form and Ander Herrera is exactly the sort of player Van Gaal will be looking to to keep possession from a Saints team that is comfortable holding the ball.
Jonny Evans has been available for selection recently after overcoming injury but we expect Van Gaal to keep faith with Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo at the back, with Antonio Valencia on the right and Ashley Young on the left.
Here's your update predicted lineup with less than four hours to go until kick of at St Mary's Stadium...
De Gea, Valencia, Smalling, Rojo, Young, Carrick, Herrera, Fellaini, Mata, Van Persie, Rooney
What do you think the starting XI will be?
