Manchester United fought against a forceful Southampton to gain three points! Up, up and away they go into 3rd place on the Premier League table.
Van Persie gave Manchester United the lead in the 12th minute. However, the hurrah only lasted until the 31st minute when Pelle scored the equaliser!
Although they hit a rough patch, they managed to scurry out of it as, once again, Van Persie came to the rescue in the 71st minute! Well then. Someone’s decided to crawl out from under their shell today.
Manchester United have pushed Southampton down to fifth place. It seems as if they’re trying to make a tremendous reappearance this season!
