football scores

In one of the unexpected football scores at the weekend, Southampton held Manchester United to a draw at home as they picked up their first point of the Premier League season. Che Adams put the hosts ahead in the first half with a brilliant strike from outside the box. The deflected shot gave David de Gea no chance in the Manchester United goal.

Last season the Saints had blown a two-goal lead in the corresponding fixture. Mason Greenwood equalized for the visitors and it looked like we would have a repeat of a comeback win last season. The Saints though defended well to see out the game and claim a point.

Managers Reaction

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl: “This was a big step forward for us, and important to be competitive. It’s a pity (not to win), we had a few good chances to win the game today. But it was also a fantastic performance from us.”

Man Utd manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: “We did well to get the goal, a good goal, having built pressure. We had another good spell for five or six minutes then lost our way a little bit. Maybe tiredness and sloppiness came in and we gave their crowd things to cheer about, they had some counter-attacks and a few dangerous moments. The whole team fell away a little bit and we didn’t play particularly well in the last 15 minutes.”
