Manchester United will be hoping to maintain their unbeaten run by securing all three points against top four rivals Southampton at Old Trafford this afternoon.
The Red Devils, who haven't been beaten on home soil since the first day of the season, welcome back Argentine superstar Angel di Maria to the starting XI after the winger made his return from injury in the FA Cup last weekend.
As well as Di Maria, the likes of Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Co. all start for an extremely attack-minded side, but Colombian hit-man Radamel Falcao fails to make the bench.
In form Spanish star David de Gea starts between the sticks once again, whilst ex-Barcelona man Victor Valdes takes his place on the bench after securing a permanent deal to the club this past week.
There's no doubt about it, the Red Devils will be desperate to secure all three points as they go in search of closing the gap on second place Manchester City, who dropped points against Everton at Goodison Park yesterday.

Southampton, meanwhile, will be determined to secure their first ever Premier League victory at Old Trafford and will head into the game full of confidence after their good run of form.
Southampton to fire
And, with United's back-four having looked vulnerable at times throughout the course of the campaign, Ronald Koeman's side will expect to cause the Red Devils a number of problems.
The likes of Morgan Schneiderlin and Victor Wanyama will no doubt be hoping to win the midfield battle as the Saints attempt to continue their progression.
