Misfiring Man Utd Stretch Winless Run To Five Games

English Premier League

Result: Southampton 0-0 Manchester United

Date: 17 May 2017

Venue: St Mary's

Manchester United stretched their winless run in the Premier League to five matches after playing out a 0-0 draw with Southampton on Wednesday evening.

The Saints applied the early pressure and earned a penalty after just five minutes when Eric Bailly handled the ball in the box. Manolo Gabbiadini was given the responsibility of taking the kick but Argentine international Sergio Romero well to save the penalty and keep the scores level at 0 – 0.

United lacked the attacking edge in the first half and found were unable to create goal scoring opportunities or threaten Ben Forster’s goal.

Nathan Redmond had an opportunity in the last attack of the half but saw his effort deflect off Marouane Fellaini to fall comfortably for Romero in goal. It remained goalless at half time and neither team posing an attacking threat.

The second half saw Southampton get the first scoring opportunity after a quick free kick from James Ward-Prowse set up Dusan Tadic whose shot was wonderfully saved by the alert Sergio Romero in United’s goal.

Romero was certainly the busier of the two keepers on the night as he kept his side in the game with some fine saves. On the hour mark the United keeper brilliantly kept out an effort from James Ward-Prowse to ensure that the scores remain level.

Man United finally threatened after a counter attacking move saw Anthony Martial’s curling effort hit the woodwork to spare Southampton’s blushes in the 72nd minute.

Goalless was how it ended at St Mary’s with United remaining in sixth position and Southampton occupying eight position.
