Can Wilder's side keep it up as since the turn of the year, the Blades have actually managed to win three of their six Premier League matches on home soil following previous triumphs over Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion

14:40 

Speaking of goals.... Blades striker McGoldrick will be looking to score in consecutive league games for the first time since January 2019 in the Championship. So far he has scored six Premier League goals for the South Yorkshire club this season, twice as many as any other player (Billy Sharp, 3).

14:36 

It was all going so well for Southampton who were averaging 2.1 goals-per-game between September and December. But they have now failed to score in eight of their last 13 Premier League matches averaging 0.5 goals-per-game. They'll need to find their goal scoring form if they are to climb back up the table

14:10 

Here is how Chris Wilder is setting out his team to face Southampton.

14:05 

Both sides come into the game riddled with injuries, but the Blades will be buoyed having come out on top against Aston Villa with a 1-0 win. While the Saints had five days to prepare following their defeat to Everton by the same score line
