Manchester United come from behind to draw Southampton 2-2




Manchester United came from behind to salvage a 2-2 draw with Southampton in an English Premier League match that was played last night at St Mary’s stadium.

United remains in the seventh position on the Premier League table with 22 points.

Mourinho’s side were facing an embarrassing defeat early on as the Saints went into a 2-0 lead inside the opening 20 minutes.

Marcus Rashford inspired a comeback before half-time, with two goals in six minutes from Romelu Lukaku and Ander Herrera earning the visitors a point.

Meanwhile, Raheem Sterling and Ilkay Gundogan secured the win that sends them five points clear at the top of the Premier League.

City’s victory maintains their 100% home record in the league this season, with eight wins out of eight, but this latest triumph was not as straightforward as the scoreline might suggest.

Finally, Huddersfield manager David Wagner described football as “absolutely no fun” after seeing “big” decisions go against his side in Saturday’s 2-1 home loss to Brighton.

The hosts took the lead inside a minute at the John Smith’s Stadium but were reduced to 10 men just after the half-hour when Steve Mounie was penalised for a high challenge on Yves Bissouma.

Wagner felt his side should have been awarded a penalty just before half-time when Alex Pritchard was brought down by Pascal Gross, and was also unhappy that a tackle by Brighton’s Leon Balogun on Erik Durm did not result in a dismissal

The visitors made their numerical advantage count following Mounie’s dismissal, Shane Duffy equalising deep into added time at the end of the first half, before Florin Andone struck from close range after the break.

Having taken just three points from their first 10 games, Huddersfield had won two and drawn one of their previous three league matches to climb out of the relegation zone
