Comments:

League position: 4th Manchester United had now kept only two clean sheets in their home games so far in this season Premier League; only Fulham (one) had kept fewer. Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer became manager, the Red Devils had now won 32 points; at least five more than any other team in the Premier League. Andreas Pereira became the sixth Brazilian player to score for United in the Premier (also Anderson, Rafael, Kléberson, Fred and Fábio). Romelu Lukaku had now scored nine goals in his last 11 Premier League appearances against Southampton. Paul Pogba's penalty in the fourth minute of added time at the end of the game was saved.

Comments:

League position: 17th Southampton had now lost two of their last six away games in the Premier League (won two). The Saints had now won one of their last 34 games in the Premier League against the big six opponents (lost 24). James Ward-Prowse had now scored five goals in this Premier League season; more than in any other previous season.
