Manchester United - Southampton Preview: Januzaj aiming to keep starting spot

The 18-year-old could retain his place in David Moyes' side against the Saints after scoring twice against Sunderland in the club's last outing before the international break

Adnan Januzaj will be hoping to keep his starting place in Manchester United's side for their Premier League fixture against Southampton at Old Trafford on Saturday.

The 18-year-old scored twice in his first start for United to inspire the Premier League champions to a 2-1 victory over Sunderland prior to the international break.

Januzaj may now retain his place on the left flank but Tom Cleverley, who also started the match at the Stadium of Light, is a doubt for the clash against Southampton due to a calf injury.

David Moyes may have Rio Ferdinand available after the defender missed the victory over Sunderland with a groin problem.

United are aiming to avoid back-to-back home defeats in the Premier League for the first time since 2002.

On that occasion the hosts suffered 1-0 defeats to Middlesbrough and Arsenal respectively, as they relinquished their Premier League crown to Arsene Wenger's side.

Moyes' men were defeated 2-1 by West Bromwich Albion in their last home fixture on September 28, as Morgan Amalfitano and Saido Berahino struck either side of Wayne Rooney's effort.

But history is with United as Southampton have only taken one point from 14 Premier League visits to Old Trafford.

 MAN UTD LATEST
10/3 Robin van Persie is 10/3 with bet365 to open the scoring against Southampton
Despite their poor record at the home of Red Devils, manager Mauricio Pochettino will be buoyed by his side's defensive exploits thus far this season.

They have conceded just two goals in the Premier League so far in an impressive start to the campaign, and their defence has not been breached since a 1-0 loss away to Norwich in August.

Southampton are on a three-game winning streak having seen off Liverpool at Anfield before home successes against Crystal Palace and Swansea City.

Pochettino's men now have the chance to record back-to-back away victories in the top flight for the first time since September 2001.

Goalkeeper Artur Boruc missed Poland's 2-0 defeat against England at Wembley on Tuesday night with a hamstring injury but should be fit to feature, while Luke Shaw - who missed the Swansea game through illness - is also available for selection.
