Jose Mourinho reveals Zlatan Ibrahimovic is out for one month with injury

Jose Mourinho has yet again taken aim at Manchester City's transfer spending, insisting that Manchester United cannot spend £600 million on six new players. A top London game, it has the feel now of a top-six skirmish with no relevance whatsoever to the title race. Dusan Tadic is expected to be back in the line up after his goal against Tottenham, but otherwise, no significant changes are expected after the thrashing at Tottenham.

The quality of United's defending has become an increasing problem for Mourinho of late.

- Manchester United are now winless in four competitive matches (W0 D3 L1) - their worst run since May 2017, when the fourth game in that run was also against Southampton.

Mourinho is still looking for his best combination in attack too.

Mourinho's team lost 2-1 to second-tier Bristol City in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals before playing two 2-2 Premier League draws with Leicester City and Burnley. Looked at times to be the only player that wanted to win.

"We always have that fighting spirit, that never-give-up attitude and we'll see where it gets us", Lingard said. Southampton (14th, 19 points): The Saints are right in the fight for relegation and rest just two points above the drop zone.

"I think for a striker, any player, that's absolutely incredible".

Pep Guardiola oversaw a major influx of talent in the summer, spending £221.5m to sign defenders Benjamin Mendy, Kyle Walker and Danilo, goalkeeper Ederson, midfielder Bernardo Silva and young prospect Douglas Luiz.

Mourinho also confirmed none of the players who missed the draw at home to Burnley will be back this weekend, meaning Antonio Valencia, Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini, Chris Smalling, Eric Bailly and Matteo Darmian remain absent. Both Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba have been involved in every game they are available and this game will be no different.

"Is he unlucky in our box in recent matches? We do it with some balance".

Lukaku tried being the creator against Leicester City but his teammates failed to oblige the wonderful balls he sent their way.

The hosts will be hoping Jesse Lingard's rich vein of form continues against the Saints.
