Result: Southampton 2-2 Manchester United

Date: 01 December 2018

Venue: St Mary's Stadium

Manchester United rallied back from two goals down to secure a 2-2 draw away to Southampton in the English Premier League on Saturday evening.

United got off to a poor start as Saints took the lead in the 13th minute, with Stuart Armstrong firing past David de Gea from close range.

The lead was doubled seven minutes later as Portuguese full-back Cedric curled home a superb free-kick that left De Gea with no chance.

The Red Devils managed to pull a goal back after 30 minutes as Marcus Rashford's pass deflected into the path of Romelu Lukaku, who rifled the ball into the top corner.

Rashford had a hand in the equaliser eight minutes later as he raced to the byline and picked out Ander Herrera, who found the back of the with a neat flick.

Seven minutes into the second half, United went close to pulling ahead when Marouane Fellaini glanced a header just wide of the upright.

The visitors were dealt a blow in the 73rd minute as Luke Shaw picked up a knock and was forced off. He was replaced by Premier League debutant Diogo Dalot.

De Gea came to United's rescue in the 81st minute as Pogba carelessly gave the ball away, which allowed Hojber to unleash a stinging effort that tipped over the bar.

Both sides pushed for a winning goal in the closing stages, but they were unable to carve out chances as the spoils were shared on the night.
