Football: Weekend guide to the Premiership - Manchester United v Southampton Last season: 1-0
Saturday 27 February 1999
Matt Le Tissier, Southampton's inconsistent midfielder, is poised to return to their starting line-up following injury. Le Tissier has been out for four weeks with a torn hamstring but made an untroubled comeback for the reserves in midweek. The Channel Islander is likely to replace Hassan Kachloul, the Moroccan international, who is away on international duty. Mark Hughes misses the game against his former club because of suspension. James Beattie, however, is optimistic of a return despite a groin injury, while Stuart Ripley is battling to recover from a calf problem. Francis Benali and Scott Marshall are both back in contention following long-term injuries.
