Southampton entertain Manchester United on Monday hoping to beat the Premiership champions at The Dell for the third year in succession. Two seasons ago Southampton won 3-1 and last season they beat United 6- 3. In the previous season United could only draw 2-2 at The Dell and their last League victory there was a 3-1 win in 1993-94.

United also had a tough time against the Saints in the late 1980s, when they won only two League fixtures against them in four seasons.

The clubs have recently met regularly in cups, with honours even. In FA Cup ties, United won in the sixth round two years ago and Southampton won on penalties in 1992. In the League Cup, United won after a replay in 90-91, while Southampton won in a replay four years earlier.
