U21 Starting XI: Southampton v Manchester United – Barclays U21 Premier League

Manchester United face Southampton this evening in the Barclays U21 Premier League. The match is to be played at the Staplewood Training Centre in Southampton. United are currently top of the league, on goal difference, over local rivals Manchester City. Opponents, Southampton for currently fifth in the league with eleven points, which would put them in a good position should they beat United. The hosts this evening have won three, lost two and drawn one of their last six fixtures. United have the same record in the league in their last six fixtures, which suggests that tonight’s match will be a good one. Southampton’s Ryan Seager is their top scorer this season with six goals, with James Wilson, currently in United’s first team squad, scoring six himself. He did not feature for United’s first team at the weekend, so he could be available tonight for the U21’s, or he’s being rested to play some part in the first teams match against Stoke City on Tuesday evening.
