Ahead of the season finale at St. Mary's, Blades boss Chris Wilder has clarified why Lys Mousset was omitted from the matchday squad for the Everton game and says the French striker won't feature at Southampton.

Mousset has had a 'few knocks and niggles' since lockdown and following the birth of his first child in his native France, Wilder says he believes he made the correct decision to allow the striker to head home before the end of the season.

The Blades boss also acknowledged that it hadn't been easy for United's foreign players during the lockdown period and praised their efforts and understanding at what was a difficult time.

On the game itself, the United manager is not under-estimating the threat from a solid club with talented players, that beat Manchester City last time out.
