Manchester United were beaten last weekend by Crystal Palace but did not reassure themselves by conceding a draw in Southampton (1-1) after leading. Consolation: Daniel James scored again.
The match: 1-1
It was supposed to be the rebounding game after the surprise loss to Crystal Palace (1-2) last weekend, but Manchester United still fell foul at Saturday's St. Mary's Stadium (1-1). Ahead of the score thanks to a new skylight of his pearl Daniel James after a nice move (10th), the Red Devils lost the influx after the break, which Southampton has logically benefited on a corner gently pushed back and converted by the Saints in decisive center for the head of their Danish giant Jannik Vestergaard (58th).
The film of the match
Even the exclusion of the decisive passer Kevin Danso (2nd yellow card, 73rd) was not enough for the men of Solskjaer. MU, however, stormed Gunn's cage in the last quarter of an hour. But James (74th), Rashford, launched by Pogba (83rd) then Lingaard, out of the bench for the last 25 minutes (87th), have tried without success. Mostly, Greenwood and Young have failed on the goalkeeper or anything (89th). Result: The Mancunians take a point out of six possible and are stalled (4th) before the rest of this fourth day.
The 4th day of Premier League
Player: James still in the skylight
Look no further for the revelation of the beginning of the season at Manchester Unietd. By scoring his third goal in four games (against five with Swansea all last season), the 21-year-old Welsh rookie this week for his Euro 2020 qualifying matches has also broken the screen. Especially since the right winger scored magnificent goals. Skylight last week against Crystal Palace. Skylight or almost again against the Saints. Problem: Neither of his flashes allowed the Red Devils to win. And he slowed down in the second half. Despite a final sequence hook-strikes (74th).
Manchester United have won just one of their last nine Premier League matches (4-0 against Chelsea at the opening of the season).
