Manchester United and Southampton played out a thrilling game at the St. Mary’s thanks to both team’s sluggishness in defence.

We had to come back from two goals down to win the game 3-2 thanks to Edison Cavani’s masterclass.

The Saints led 2-0 at half-time through goals from Jan Bednarek and James Ward-Prowse, but a Bruno Fernandes strike and Cavani double won the game for us.

The only blemish in our victory against the Saints is the injury to goalkeeper David de Gea who limped off at half-time after suffering a knee injury when attempting to save Southampton’s second goal.

The victory over the Saints was our eighth successive away league win and lifts us to seventh place with 16 points, one point behind Southampton.
