Manchester United has been on a brilliant streak over the past few days and will look to take the game to Southampton on its home ground. The free-scoring Red Devils are one of the most potent attacking forces in the Premier League at the moment and will look to build on their rich vein of form against Southampton, reported the Sport Skeena.
Meanwhile, Southampton has played attractive football this season and Manchester United will have to be wary of the Saints' threat in the final third. The Red Devils have been in exceptional touch and will look to make yet another statement with a victory.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side has shown title-challenging form since the restart, winning five games on the spin with an aggregate score of 16-3, extending their unbeaten run to 17 matches with a 3-0 victory over Aston Villa on Thursday.
The trio of Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba, and Mason Greenwood has been almost untouchable - and defeats for Chelsea and Leicester at the weekend offer United a golden opportunity to go third with a win.
Date, time and venue
The match between Manchester United and Southampton is scheduled for an 8 pm BST kick-off on Monday, July 13, 2020. It will be behind closed doors at Old Trafford with no fans due to being the government guidelines regarding coronavirus.

Chris Kavanagh is set to be the man in the middle for Monday’s clash. It will only be the fourth time the referee has taken charge of a United game and his first-ever at Old Trafford. The Reds have actually never won when Kavanagh has officiated, having lost two and drawn one of these clashes. He will be assisted on Monday by Sian Massey-Ellis and Scott Ledger, while Anthony Taylor will assume the role of the fourth official. Elsewhere, Lee Mason and Marc Perry will be based in Stockley Park watching the VAR monitors.

MU is blessed with an almost entirely clean bill of health at present, with only defenders Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe sidelined. Meanwhile, Southampton remains without the likes of Sofiane Boufal, Yan Valery, Nathan Tella, and Moussa Djenepo. Defender Jannik Vestergaard faces a late fitness test, according to the Standard.co.uk.
Bruno Fernandes and Mason Greenwood have been sensational for Manchester United in recent weeks and will be the chief creative threats for the side. Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba have also been in good form and will look to get on to the scoresheet against Southampton, added the Sport Skeeda.
Southampton will come into this fixture with the same 4-4-2 setup that managed a shock upset against Manchester City last week. Danny Ings has been exceptional for Southampton and will trouble Manchester United with his abilities on Monday.
Head to head history and results
United have won 26 of the previous 41 Premier League meetings between these two sides, with Southampton claiming seven victories to go along with eight draws.
Vestergaard's second-half header earned the Saints a share of the spoils at St Mary's back in August after Daniel James' stylish opener and a red card for Kevin Danso.
