Rashford makes it two 

Mason Greenwood loops the ball into the box to Marcus Rashford who fires it towards the centre of goal. McCarthy had fingertips on the ball but it wasn't enough to deny the Manchester United forward.

United pressing 

United have had the majority of the ball so far. They look dangerous on the attack and with Saints down to 10 men, every attack looks promising.

Manchester United rewind ⏮

It was an emphatic battle the last time Saints faced United at Old Trafford. 


Stuart Armstrong was the first to have the ball in the back of the net but it didn't take long for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men to strike back. 

90 + 5 and 2-1 down, up steps Michael Obafemi with a late equaliser for Saints and the spoils are shared 🤝

But i see us creating a lot of chances and it is only a question of time before we score again.
