Pogba puts out the fire

Manchester United were unable to get past the tie at St Mary's Stadium. Greenwood's goal came after another assist from the French midfielder.


Living up to opening day 5-1 expectations was very difficult, if not impossible, for Manchester United, but Solskjaer's side suffered too much against Southampton in the second Premier weekend. Good game for the Saints, who perhaps deserved more for their fantastic first half, and well Pogba to the rescue, dancing inside the area before attending Greenwood to put out a fire that would have set off the first alarm of the season. With this, by the way, there are already five goal passes in the league.

For their part, Hasenhüttl gave what they promise almost always when they are measured against a big one, and it is, at the very least, a fight and delivery. Although the Red Devils had the first chances, it was the Saints who went the most for the game, and as a result of this came the goal of Ché Adams, although they ended up giving it to Fred for deflecting the ball. The previous connection with high-heeled Armstrong was fantastic, and it points to the two being able to form a great partnership together.

However, the passing of the minutes ended up imposing quality on the physical, and Pogba, who has plenty of both, invented a play against the Southampton wall to filter the only possible ball to Greenwood, who finished with such innocence that the doorman didn't see it coming.
