Man United 1-1 Southampton: Man United share points with Southampton as the Red Devils failed to take down 10 Saints.

Man United failed to hold on to their early lead against Southampton as they leave Saint Mary’s Stadium with just 1 point.

Fast-rising former Swansea boy, Daniel James handed his side an early lead when he carefully converted Scott McTominay’s pass into a wonderful finish.

The Red Devils finished up the first 45 minutes in advantage and hoping to seal their second win of the season, but the second half turned out disappointing.

Minutes after the second-half whistle, Che Adams had fired a wide shot which was off target. Danny Ings increased the pressure when Man United keeper, David De’ Gea managed to save superbly his attempt.

But unfortunately for Solskjaer and his men, their keeper wasn’t able to stop Jannik Vestergaard’s thundering header following Kevin Danso’s fine cross bringing Southampton back into the game.

Kevin Danso, not minding he still has his name booked in during the 19th minute, went on hard against Man United midfielder Scott McTominay and was sent off the pitch after been shown a second yellow card.

Man United tried so hard to capitalise on the advantage handed to them but Southampton Angus Gunn was too quick to prevent goals from Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood.

Jesse Lingard and Ashley Young also had attempted but both were disappointedly fired wide.

It’s another poor finish for the Red Devils today as they have won just one game in out of 4 this season.

More games to come today as Chelsea welcomes Sheffield United at Stamford Bridge and more other matches.
