Southampton 2-3 Man Utd: Super Sub Cavani scores brace to earn Red Devils comeback win



That’s three league wins on the bounce for United then, and it hoists them firmly – for the moment at least – into the top six race once again. Southampton will rue the missed chance here – at 2-0 up, after that Ward-Prowse first-half performance, they should have been home and dry – but they will surely learn from this cruel late loss..

A clean sheet for Dean Henderson on his first Premier League game for Manchester United, brought on after David de Gea’s injury. But it is Cavani, the late-window buy who brought his years of experience to bear after he replaced Mason Greenwood. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was outfoxed in the first half but he has trumped Ralph Hasenhuttl at the final post here..

Edinson Cavani brings Manchester Untied back from the brink at St Mary’s Stadium – and then some! – as the Red Devils snatch a dramatic late win against Southampton in the Premier League. The visitors preserve their perfect away record in the top-tier this term after the Uruguayan’s brace of headers and assist – and their hosts slump to a first defeat in eight. At full-time, it finishes Southampton 2-3 Manchester United.
