Southampton face a trip to Manchester United at Old Trafford at lunchtime on Saturday, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 32 out of 48 times.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in November 2002, the Red Devils carving out a narrow 2 - 1 victory in a Premiership match.
