MANCHESTER UNITED 3-2 SOUTHAMPTON

FT: And that’s it. We’ve been treated to a five-goal thinner at Old Trafford today as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side march on. Bitterly disappointing for Southampton though. The visitors were good for a point.

MANCHESTER UNITED 3-2 SOUTHAMPTON | MISSED PENALTY

94: Goodness me! Paul Pogba takes the penalty himself and decides to shoot straight down the middle. Angus Gunn keeps it out with his feet. good save – terrible news for my fantasy football team though…

PENALTY TO MANCHESTER UNITED

92: Stuart Armstrong is judged to have tripped Marcus Rashford. It’s going to be a penalty for Manchester United – will Paul Pogba allow Romelu Lukaku to take it?

90: Five minutes added time.
MANCHESTER UNITED 3-2 SOUTHAMPTON | LUKAKU

88: Painful! Southampton have done so well this afternoon but a fierce strike from Romelu Lukaku looks to have wrapped all three points up for Manchester United.

Fred’s pass finds Lukaku with his back to goal just outside the penalty area. The Belgian spins before firing a low, swerving effort past Gunn.

85: I’d expected Southampton to shut-up-shop and take a point with them back down south – but they are the more attacking side in these closing stages.

83: Maya Yoshida meets Nathan Redmond’s cross into the box, but it is well blocked by Chris Smalling.

80: Manchester United have ten minutes to find a winner and see the pressure on Arsenal. As things stand, United will remain in fifth – one point behind Arsenal.

However, Chelsea are three points behind with two games in hand.

75: These sides have their own Goal of the Month competition this afternoon!

James Ward-Prowse bends in a superb free-kick from the better part of 25-yards to level for relegation-threatened Southampton.

David de Gea didn’t stand a chance!

68: Latest Premier League scores: Bournemouth 0-1 Manchester City (Mahrez), Brighton 0-0 Huddersfield, Burnley 0-2 Crystal Palace (Bardsley OG, Batshuayi), Wolves 2-0 Cardiff (Jota, Jimenez).

65: Romelu Lukaku looks thirsty for a second. His fine solo run results in a corner. The ball is cleared to Diogo Dalot, who fires just past the far post.

63: Stuart Armstrong comes on in place of Charlie Austin.

59: All change please, all change.

What a turnaround! Andreas Pereira slips in Romelu Lukaku and the Belgian finishes clinically. He loves a goal against Southampton.

Full credit to Andreas Pereira, who managed to stay on his feet and keep his balance long enough to poke the ball to Lukaku.

55: Have Manchester United kicked on? No, in a word. Southampton have responded well by winning a corner that bounces through the penalty area. Slightest touch and Saints re-take the lead.

MANCHESTER UNITED 1-1 SOUTHAMPTON – PEREIRA

53: Stunner. You simply don’t stop those!

Andreas Pereira opens his Premier League account for Manchester United. The midfielder is allowed to drive forward before curling in a long-range beauty to bring the hosts level.

All the United players and those on the bench run over to celebrate with the 23-year-old. Quite a nice show of support that.

51: That’s it for Alexis Sanchez. He joins the ever-growing list of Manchester United casualties
49: Sanchez’s injury looks more severe than first thought. He’s down in the area clutching his knee.

47: Nathan Redmond skins Chris Smalling before teeing up Charlie Austin in the penalty area – but the striker is beaten to the ball by Ashley Young.

Moments later Alexis Sanchez goes down inside the penalty area appealing for a spot-kick… no chance. Vestergaard wins the ball.

46: Charlie Austin uses his experience to draw a foul from Chris Smalling around the halfway line. Smalling took the bait and Saints get get themselves up the pitch.

MANCHESTER UNITED 0-1 SOUTHAMPTON

45: And we’re back underway here at Old Trafford. An unusually wasteful and flat Manchester United are looking to turn things around.

Alexis Sanchez is being used as a scapegoat online… He’s not been great but this isn’t all his fault! No changes for either side.
MANCHESTER UNITED 0-1 SOUTHAMPTON

HT: Ralph Hasenhuttl has set Southampton up really well, and deservedly takes a one-goal lead in with them at the break.

47: Just 60 seconds of the three minutes of stoppage time remaining. Any late chances? Nope. None.

45: Penalty appeal! Southampton are denied their second spot-kick of the afternoon. This one is blatant as Ashley Young wraps both arms around Bertrand’s shoulders inside the area.

Referee Stuart Attwell ignores it completely.

43: Woodwork! Chris Smalling heads a corner towards goal with Gunn beaten. The ball hits the post and Marcus Rashford couldn’t squeeze it in at the far post.

42: Ryan Bertrand booked for a late foul on Romelu Lukaku. Nothing too sinister.

40: Lovely no-look, reverse pass from Paul Pogba cuts through the Saints defence but Alexis Sanchez can’t collect and Gunn races off his line to smother it.

38: How isn’t it 1-1?

Ashley Young’s pin-point cross finds Romelu Lukaku unmarked in the six-yard box. The Belgian appears to lose the flight of the ball and glances it wide with the faintest of touches.

35: Why Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku shouldn’t play together – exhibit A.

Luke Shaw weaves his way down the left channel before sliding in to Lukaku, but Rashford’s outstretched leg takes it away from his Belgian partner.

33: Southampton playing like a top-six side here! The defending is solid and they look threatening every time they attack. Ralph Hasenhuttl is certainly getting a tune out of his players.

30: Southampton fans urge Yan Valery to strike again. Thankfully he doesn’t oblige from the better part of 45 yards away!

Just seen another replay of his opener. David de Gea will be bitterly disappointed having got both hands on the ball.

27: Well… Manchester United need to find some answers because Southampton look comfortable today.

MANCHESTER UNITED 0-1 SOUTHAMPTON | VALERY

25: Bosh! 20-year-old Yan Valery has scored with an absolute, unadulterated rocket from distance.

It reminds me of the goal Cuco Martina scored against Arsenal all those years ago. The full-back is allowed to drive forward before unleashing a a right-footed thunderbolt from distance that flies into the top corner past David De Gea!

Dream first senior goal for Valery.

24: Why don’t you cross it more accurately Valeryyyyyy. Don’t worry, I won’t be attempting humour again…

The Southampton full-back sends a deep cross in from the right and Ashley Young heads it behind for a corner. It’s easily cleared.

21: Seen quite a few wild passes in this opening 20 minutes. Not a great deal of urgency being shown by the hosts. Still goalless and very little to discuss I’m afraid.

Manchester United vs Southampton: Premier League score, goals and updates from Old Trafford


18: Crystal Palace are leading Burnley 1-0 through a Phil Bardsley OG. Wolves have also taken the lead against Cardiff. It’s 2-0 and Jimenez and Jota with the goals.

16: Manchester United with 57 percent possession in the opening quarter-hour. Their powerful start has subsided a touch with Southampton looking more organised and compact.

13: You’ll be relieved to hear that McTominay is back on his feet. Southampton enjoy a rare foray forward as Vestergaard goes close with a header from JSP’s corner. Bullet connection but couldn’t keep it down.

11: A slight worry for United now with Scott McTominay down after a nasty-looking clash of heads. He’s been down for around three minutes with the medical staff on the field.

8: Another effort, another save, another corner…

Pereira is the latest player to test Gunn in the Southampton goal with a curling strike. The goalkeeper tips it away before mayhem ensues from the corner.

The ball drops for Lukaku inside the penalty area with Gunn producing a fine relax save. Lots of red shirts trying to apply a finish but Vestergaard clears.
5: Southampton continue to weather the early storm. Manchester United have been relentless in these opening stages.

3: So it looks like Marcus Rashford is playing down the right channel with Alexis Sanchez on the left and Romelu Lukaku leading the line.

Chance! Great early pressure from the hosts. Romelu Lukaku lines up an effort from distance and forces a good save from Gunn. That was heading straight into the bottom corner from the Belgian striker.

MANCHESTER UNITED 0-0 SOUTHAMPTON

1: And we’re underway folks. Buckle up – I have a feeling this will be a little trickier than expected for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
