Mauricio Pellegrino has confirmed that regular full-back pairing C├ędric and Ryan Bertrand are not yet fit enough to return to competitive action, as the trip to Manchester United nears.

Striker Charlie Austin is also continuing to nurse a hamstring problem, while Bertrand could recover in time to feature when Saints host Crystal Palace on January 2nd.

The manager said: "Charlie, Cédric and Ryan are the players who will not be involved against Man United.

"Maybe Ryan is the closest to a return, I hope against Crystal Palace he'd be ready to play."
