Manchester United have a vision to return to the ruthless-winning dynasty that Sir Alex Ferguson built, however, they still look far from the mark with another draw away at St. Mary’s stadium to Southampton.
Even with Southampton reduced to 10 men, the Red devils couldn’t muster enough chances to trouble the Saints goalie.
Paul Scholes earlier said it would take five transfer windows for United to solve its problems and this might not be too far from the truth.
Vestergaard marshalled Southampton’s defence in stellar fashion, something Maguire couldn’t do for Manchester United. In fact, the Saints centre-half ended up scoring the only goal for his side, his first in England’s top-flight.
For Manchester United, it’s now down to two defeats, one draw and one win.
With their recent performances, it becomes seemingly difficult to believe how they got to deal such massive blow (4-0) to Chelsea at the start of the campaign.
That said, former Swansea winger, Daniel James has found a golden sink hole in the hearts of United fans who are overwhelmingly delighted with his performances.
The former Championship player who’s charmed many with his blistering pace found the net in the first forty-five minutes, saving the blushes of the visitors.
Apart from levelling matters at the St. Mary’s stadium, Vestergaard was a thorn in the flesh of Marcus Rashford, blocking off all shots that appeared to be goal bound.
Southampton were reduced to 10 men when Kevin Danso was sent off with 21 minutes of regulation time left to play. However, they still managed to keep the marauding runs of James, Greenwood, Rashford and Lingard at bay.
Harry Maguire displeased at what was happening up front, decided to step into the centre circle in a bid to keep the ball in the other half. He however was caught on the counter on a few occasions but had defence partner, Victor Lindelof cover up for him.
