Comments:

League position: 18th Manager Mark Hughes was sacked two days after this game. Southampton remained without a win in their last ten games in the Premier League (lost five). The Saints had now led in six games in this Premier League season but won only one of them (lost two). They had now lost more points from winning positions than any other team in the division in 2018-19 (12). They were now the only team without a home win in this Premier League season. Cédric Soares scored his first goal in the Premier League in his 100th appearance in the competition.

Comments:

League position: 7th After 14 games of this Premier League season, Manchester United were now 16 points behind leaders Manchester City. United had now conceded 23 goals in this Premier League season. It wasn’t until their 30th game of the 2017-18 season (against Liverpool on 10 March 2018) that they conceded their 23rd goal. Romelu Lukaku ended his run of 12 games (981 playing minutes) without scoring for United in all competitions.
