Ibrahimovic, Herrera, Pogba, Martial and Bailly start against Southampton

Manchester United go head to head with Southampton in the EFL Cup final at Wembley this afternoon. This is United’s ninth League Cup final, the second for Southampton. United have won the cup four times, Southampton have never lifted the cup before. This will be a tough match for both teams for various reasons. United have played three matches in the past fortnight and Southampton have had a break as they are no longer involved in the UEFA Europa League or the Emirates FA Cup. The break may well be of benefit for Southampton, but it could easily go against them as United will be fitter than their opposition.

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Valencia, Bailly, Smalling, Rojo;

Herrera, Pogba;

Lingard, Mata, Martial;

Ibrahimovic

Substitutes:

Romero; Blind, Young; Carrick, Fellaini; Rooney, Rashford

Southampton:

Forster;

Cedric, Yoshida, Stephens, Bertrand;

Romeu, Davis;

Ward-Prowse, Tadic, Redmond;

Gabbiadini

Substitutes:

Hassen; Long, Rodriguez, Caceres, Boufal, Hojbjerg, McQueen

Manchester United and Southampton have faced each other 119 times since 1897 with United winning 62 matches, drawing 29 and losing just 28. Since the year 2000, United and Southampton have met 23 times, three of those in the Emirates FA Cup, 20 in the Premier League. United have lost just four matches, drawing twice. This is good form for United against the South Coast side. Jose Mourinho will be looking to continue this form against Southampton and break records by winning a major trophy in his debut season – something which a United manager has failed to so in the history of the club.
