Manchester United 2 - 2 Southampton

The Saints started off well at Old Trafford and went ahead through Stuart Armstrong’s 12th-minute strike, following Paul Pogba’s mistake.

But United responded immediately – Marcus Rashford slotting home the equaliser before Anthony Martial fired a superb second three minutes later.

Obafemi then bundled it in at the back post from a set-piece deep in stoppage time after it had been flicked on by Jan Bednarek – leaving United fifth with three games left.

Manchester United stay in fifth place after a frustrating draw against an impressive Southampton. A ravenous Anthony Martial turned a 1-0 deficit into a 2-1 lead during a pulsating first half, but United sat on that lead after the break and was punished when the substitute Michael Obafemi scored an injury-time equaliser.

United probably won’t be impressed that Obafemi came on as a substitute for Romeu, who should have been sent off in the first half. Southampton was very good, though, and hope the Romeu incident doesn’t overshadow that.
