EPL: Man United seek spark as Southampton close in
London: Manchester United will attempt to stave off an assault on their third-place position in the Premier League table when they welcome closest pursuers Southampton to Old Trafford on Sunday.
Louis van Gaal
United have gone 10 games without defeat since losing 1-0 at joint-leaders Manchester City on November 2, but they have taken only six points from a possible 12 after drawing three of their last four matches.
It has prevented Louis van Gaal's side from fully exploiting recent slip-ups by co-leaders Chelsea and has allowed Southampton to close to within one point.
