Currently the Red Devils sit six points off the pace and have had one of their slowest starts in recent memory.
"I am enjoying working with the new manager. I would prefer better results but we are only seven or eight games into the season," Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs told reporters during a press conference.
Manchester United manager David Moyes will take under consideration the fitness of his international stars before deciding on his line-up for Saturday's match.
Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney look certain to start in attack after both scored during the international break. Tom Cleverley, however, is likely to miss the match after picking up a calf injury before England's victory over Montenegro.
Moyes' major decision appears to revolve around 18-year-old Adnan Januzaj, who netted a match-winning goal on his full Premier League debut at Sunderland.
For Southampton, Artur Boruc and Luke Shaw are both in contention to see playing time in Manchester.
Saints' manager Mauricio Pochettino expects Boruc to start again in goal, despite the Poland team trainers claiming he suffered a hamstring injury during the international break. Gaston Ramirez will also be assessed after arriving back from international duty with Uruguay late on Thursday.
"I think all games in the Premier League are exciting, and this is a very good chance for us to show what we can do as a team. . . It's going to be very difficult but we are going there with a positive mentality. . . I think both teams have changed since we last played them and I am very happy with how the squad is performing these days," Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino told reporters during a press conference on Friday.
Kick off for the match is at 10:00 a.m. ET and can be watched online here.
