Southampton Force Manchester United to a 1-1 Draw
Ralf Rangnick’s men are getting used to the 1-1scoreline. They drew with Burnley within the week and also Championship side Middlesbrough in the FA Cup. Manchester United had taken a first-half lead against the Saints – as they did against Burnley and Boro – but once again conceded a second-half equalizer and could not find a winning goal.
The hosts went ahead in the first 21 minutes of the game when Marcus Rashford escaped in behind the Saints defence and played the ball off for Jadon Sancho to convert an easy finish. Paul Pogba tapped home on the stroke of half-time but the goal was disallowed as Cristiano Ronaldo had strayed offside -and the Portuguese forward later had a header chalked off.
Che Adams levelled the scores for the as he stayed onside to slot a finish into the far corner via the foot of the post. On-loan Armando Broja saw a drive pushed away by David de Gea, who was kept busy, while Stuart Armstrong blazed wildly over from a promising position.
The draw meant Manchester United was unable to move into the top four, while Southampton stay in 10th place.
