“The Butcher Martinez x Rolls-Royce Varane is the way forward for Manchester United”, Twitter bows in respect to Licha’s extraordinary display against the Saints

It was another solid display from the Manchester United back four as they held onto their slender lead that was imparted by their captain Bruno Fernandes who made excellent work of some impressive surge ahead, banging in from close range, albeit on the swing.

After a fiery win against Liverpool at Old Trafford, Manchester travelled to the St. Mary’s Stadium with hopes of extending their dominion against the Saints who haven’t been at the top of their game for a while.

Here is the story of Manchester United vs Southampton

The Devils started on a seraphic note with the marauding quartet of Bruno Fernandes, Christian Eriksen, Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford. United could have easily surged ahead around the 20th minute where they had multiple chances to score but Bruno’s header veered off its actual path while Elanga fired the ricochet straight into Gavin Bazunu. Eriksen had another opportunity to open his Premier League scoring but a collective display from Bazunu and Bella-Kotchap thwarted United from getting on the scoresheet.


Post this essay of Manchester, it was pretty much open play for both sides with chances coming together only to be bereft of the final ascendancy. It took almost an hour for both sides to trouble the scoreboard as Bruno Fernandes pumped in the opener and the solitary strike of the night.

After a quick exchange of passes, Diogo Dalot whipped in a low cross and the Portuguese midfielder hammered home with a clinical volley that was the highlight of the night so far. However, post the goal, it was desperation from Manchester United that saw their defence coming together to thwart the invasive hosts and a string of important saves and blocks from De Gea and the United defence respectively to help them to a first away win in quite a while for the Devils.

Twitter was delighted to witness United displaying some top-notch rearguard action to stave away the mighty Saints away from home and will be happy to surge forth with two consecutive wins, with one against the mighty Pool. There was a special and predominant mention of the butcher, Lisandro Martinez who bagged his second man of the match award on the bounce.
