Man United 3 V Southampton 2.

I was lucky enough to get in a box with my son and his Dutch colleagues.

This match crackled from the kick off until the final whistle.

United could easily have been three up in the first 10 minutes. But
Southampton had come to win this game and counter-attacked and pressed United giving them little space. Against the run of play they scored a fantastic goal and continued to attack. They could have had two penalties with close decisions.

In the second half United opened up and a great goal by young Pereia ( his first) put them back in the hunt. Lucacu made it 2-1 and Southampton equalised with another fine goal. Lucaco put Unided ahead
and Pogba missed a late penalty.

Great game.

Now getting ready for 3 matches this afternoon with the mouthwatering prospect of seeing Everton and Liverpool. Phew !!!
