Southampton vs Manchester United: Live Updates

While Southampton gave them a good fight, United persevered to snap a seven-game losing streak away from home. Erik ten Hag's team won back-to-back games in large part due to tenacity.

This kind of performance and outcome was exactly what United needed to back up their remarkable victory over Liverpool on Monday.
Although Erik ten Hag will be pleased with his team's focus, he is aware that there is still much work to be done.

Although it wasn't pretty, United performed the basics well once more, just as they did against Liverpool, and Bruno Fernandes' one moment of brilliance in the final third was enough to win them the game.

 As soon as they were up 1-0 in the Premier League, they relaxed and took the pressure, earning their first away victory in more than six months.

McTominay was unlucky not to have a handball call made against him because, during a second-half box duel with Che Adams, his hand struck the ball three times in one action.
