Manchester United welcome Southampton to Old Trafford looking to extend their unbeaten run to 18 games in all competitions. United also recently became the first side in Premier League history to win four league matches in a row by three or more goals.
Slip-ups by Chelsea and Leicester this weekend have paved the way for the Red Devils to move up to third in the table.
Victory for United will see them leapfrog both sides as the race for Champions League football intensifies.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are also still the FA Cup and Europa League this season.
But the Norwegian has warned against complacency ahead of the Saints’ visit on Monday night.
“We’ve had an up and down season,” said Solskjaer.

“We started fantastically well against Chelsea, got a great win, played some very good football.
“Then we got a setback and of course I think the players have stuck to the task in hard times, difficult times, believed in coaches, believed in what we’re trying to do and trusted us when results haven’t gone great.
“We just want to keep on working and now the results are coming, the excitement is coming, now it’s time to keep your feet on the ground, keep working, keep doing the right things.
“Don’t believe in all the hype or the praise. That’s not their job. Their job is to perform when they play, same as don’t believe in all criticism when you don’t do well.
“Trust your team-mates, trust yourself and now you can see the end is not too far away.
“It’s a strange one because we’ve been out for so long. It’s only four games left of the season so the goal is getting close.”
United have four remaining fixtures in the Premier League, including the clash against Southampton.
Solskjaer’s men are then back in on Thursday with a trip to Crystal Palace.
Following that, United host West Ham at Old Trafford on July 22 before finishing their season at Leicester on July 26.
Between their last two league games, United have an FA Cup semi-final clash against Chelsea at Wembley on July 19.
If successful, the Red Devils would face either Arsenal or Manchester City in the FA Cup final on August 1.
The club also have to deal with the Europa League, which is at the last-16 stage.
United already have one foot firmly in the quarter-finals, taking a healthy 5-0 advantage into the second leg on August 5.
However, things will slightly different from the last eight onwards as all matches will be played as one-off ties.
Potential opponents in the quarter-finals are Istanbul Basaksehir or Copenhagen, with the fixture being played on August 10.

The Europa League quarter-finals, semi-finals and final will be staged at the Stadion Koln in Germany.
