Lukaku strikes late to send Man United fourth

With Solskjaer wary of losing any more of his players, Monday was kept a low-key affair as players ambled round Greater Manchester to visit the barbers or dry cleaner's. "We can't worry too much about them, it's all about us".

The news means Sanchez will miss Wednesday night's huge Champions League second leg clash with Paris Saint-Germain as well as this coming weekend's trip to the Emirates to take on former club Arsenal.

The striker supplied the winning goal in the 89th minute, and though there was still time for Paul Pogba to see a penalty saved in stoppage time, United were never two goals better than a feisty and determined Southampton.

"We spoke about at half-time, just get some more urgency get the ball in the box, play more forward and the Stretford End will suck the ball in for you".

Manchester United's squad enjoyed some down time on Monday afternoon as a number of the first-team squad ran some errands before Tuesday's flight out to Paris. His only Premier League hattrick came against Bournemouth just after he'd joined City in 2015 and he's scored in all six games he's played against them.

Rio Ferdinand has branded the criticism aimed at Paul Pogba earlier this season "total nonsense", with the former Manchester United star claiming to have never had any doubt that a World Cup victor would come good. But players such as Lukaku and Marcus Rashford failed to provide the final flourish to breach Gunn's goal. "And he goes happy again, and that for me is the most important thing". "They know that they are part of a special club that can do something like this".

Since Mourinho's sacking in December, United have climbed their way to fourth spot in the Premier League under interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. If we are in the game with 20 to 30 minutes to go then who knows.

While United celebrate another win, Saints were left ruing what could have been after Yan Valery opened the scoring with a stunner and James Ward-Prowse made it 2-2 with a fine free-kick.

The first half was quite good despite the poor finishing, as the front three failed to make an instant statement and did not help the side's cause of a magical comeback. He was criticised for not letting Lukaku score, who was on a hattrick.

Solskjaer's replies were by virtue of his performances, as he went on to collect 26 points from his first ten games in charge, the highest-ever by any Premier League manager. "I don't want to speak about [that] for obvious reasons", he said.
