Manchester United 1-1 Southampton 21’Sancho 48′ Che Adams

Southampton and Manchester United share points at Old Trafford. Ralf Ragnick’s men started the match very strongly with Cristiano Ronaldo missing a sitter on the 7th minute, Jadon Sancho finished off a very good move in the 21st minute giving Man United a 1-0 lead in the first half.

For a third time in a row Manchester United bottle their lead thanks to a beautiful finish by Che Adams four minutes into the second half, levelling the score 1 all. Southampton’s Goal keeper Ben fosters masterclass ensured the saints took a well deserved point home.

Southampton’s Manager, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men were humiliated last season at old Trafford having lost by 9 goals to nil. This season, the saints (Southampton) took their revenge on the red devils (Manchester United) by massively undermining their hope of finishing in a Champions league spot. Ralf Ragnick’s men move up to 5th position on the table, level on points with West Ham currently on 4th position, while, Arsenal in 6th spot are a point behind Man United with 2 games in hand. Man United host Brighton and Hove Albion next Wednesday, a must win for them to stay in the top 4 race.
