Southampton have slipped a long way down the table since the heady heights of the European spots a few weeks ago. A hat-trick of losses against Villa, Arsenal and Leicester has pushed them down to eleventh and the cup defeat, again to Arsenal, won’t have helped the mood in the dressing room much either.

Already short of Kyle Walker-Peters, Jannik Vestergaard, Mohammed Salisu and Nathan Tella, the Saints had to sub Theo Walcott, Ibrahima Diallo and Oriol Romeu through injury at the weekend, leaving the away side short all over. Djenepo, Che Adams and Danny Ings make the attack. Nineteen-year-old Alexandre Jankewitz gets his senior debut. Kayne Ramsay joins the back line.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s good run of form came to an end against Sheffield United and the weekend’s draw with Arsenal was a fairly flat encounter. The front line of Cavani, Greenwood and Rashford could do with rediscovering its spark. Expect a tough watch if Southampton decide to dig in.

Kick-off is tonight at 20.15 GMT (15.15 ET). Read on to find out how to watch a Manchester United vs Southampton live stream wherever you are.

How to watch Man Utd vs Southampton from abroad using a VPN

Even if you have access to FuboTV, you won’t be able to watch Manchester United vs Southampton when outside the US without a VPN. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you’re not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.

Try ExpressVPN risk-free for 30 days
ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money back guarantee with its VPN service. You can use it to watch on your mobile, tablet, laptop, TV, games console and more. There’s 24/7 customer support and three months free when you sign-up. Try it – you’ll be surprised how simple it is.

Once you’ve made your choice, all you need to do is sign in to your VPN service through whichever device you’d like to use to watch Manchester United vs Southampton.

When prompted to select a server, you need to pick one which is based in the country whose content you’d like to access – in this case, the  USA. Then navigate to the FuboTV online player.

You’ll be able to continue using ExpressVPN from then on to watch anything else on FuboTV and a host of other services which may also otherwise block you.
