Here we have with us the Manchester United Player Ratings for their hard-fought draw against Southampton. The Red Devils drew 1-1 with the saints at Old Trafford in their Premier League clash on Saturday.
Both teams went head to head, while some may say the Saints got the better of the hosts. Cristiano Ronaldo came very close with an open goal but was superbly blocked by Romain Perraud. The Red Devils opened the scoring of the night in the 21st minute when an inch-perfect pass from Marcus Rashford was slotted in by Jadon Sancho.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side kept creating all sorts of problems for Ralf Rangnick’s men. They drew level after Che Adams made a calm and composed finish off of an Elyounoussi assist. While both teams kept pushing for a winner, neither came out better, as the game concluded 1-1.
Man Utd have now slipped down to 5th place, but drawn on points with 4th placed West Ham United.
