London - It's third against fourth in the English Premier League this weekend as Manchester United entertains Southampton with both teams in a fine vein of form.

United is unbeaten in 11 matches, 10 in the league.

"Going into the New Year on the back of a good run means that it's a case of working even harder to climb the table and get as many points as we can," United defender Chris Smalling said.

"We need to do as much as possible on the pitch and, as an individual, do as much as we can in terms of recovery and extra work."

After a dip in form which saw it lose four matches on the trot, Southampton is back on track and has won three of its past four league matches, drawing the other one, against league leader Chelsea.
