Man United – Southampton

Man United – Southampton

Recap

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says his players “will put it right” after they missed a chance to climb into the Premier League’s top four by conceding an injury-time equaliser against Southampton. United led 2-1 for 73 minutes before substitute Michael Obafemi scored in the 96th minute, bundling in a set-piece at the back post after it had been flicked on by Jan Bednarek. Stuart Armstrong had given Southampton a 12th-minute lead, but Anthony Martial set up Marcus Rashford to equalise before firing a superb second goal for United.

Solskjaer’s side were on course to leapfrog top-four rivals Chelsea and Leicester – who both suffered defeats over the weekend – and move up to third but they remain fifth with three games left in the chase for Champions League qualification. “The mentality has been brilliant. We have had a few setbacks this season. This is another challenge for us,” said Solskjaer. “I am very confident in [the players’] mentality. I’m disappointed of course, but you have to take the disappointments as well as the positives. We have learned a hard lesson.

“It’s just the way games go,” Solskjaer said. “We all play against the same teams and we all have 38 games to go through. It works itself out over the whole season. You deserve the position you get in the end.”

We will put it right. I trust the boys in that respect.” Armstrong had opened the scoring for Southampton, following Paul Pogba’s mistake, and after fighting back to draw, the visitors now sit five points outside of the top 10 and level on points with Everton. Despite United’s setback, they will still qualify for the Champions League if they win their last three games, as they travel to the King Power Stadium to face Leicester on the final day of the season. And Solskjaer insists that “no-one is thinking about what Chelsea have done”, even though United have failed to win on eight occasions this season when the Blues have dropped points.
