Manchester United 3 Southampton 2: Lukaku seals thrilling comeback

United's 89th minute victor in their 3-2 victory against Southampton this weekend was just the latest indicator that the good times are back at Old Trafford.

Manchester United trail 2-0 from the first leg, will be without the suspended Paul Pogba and have a rash of injury concerns, but from a tie being widely written off in the aftermath of that defeat, United supporters are now daring to dream of another chapter of European glory.

Ever-improving James Ward-Prowse bent home a brilliant free-kick to hush Old Trafford, but Lukaku had the final say by lashing home to seal a 3-2 win that propels Solskjaer's side back into the top four.

"We're playing against one of the best teams in Europe with some absolute quality players but who knows?" They made a fantastic game and tactically we were very good. Including what would be a stunning comeback triumph in Wednesday's Champions League trip to Paris.

"It's fantastic. You feel a lot of emotions and I'm very happy and hopefully there will be many more to come".

According to the Daily Star, Duncan said: "In De Gea's case, De Gea wanted to sign a new contract at Manchester United a couple of seasons ago". "I have been part of it so many times myself".

Ralph Hasenhuettl, Manager of Southampton looks dejected after the Premier League match between Manchester United and Southampton FC at Old Trafford on March 02, 2019 in Manchester, United Kingdom.

The midfielder showed his strength to hold off challengers in midfield before slipping through an excellently-timed pass for the striker who finished clinically, into the far corner, from 15 yards.

We spoke about it at half-time and said get the ball in the box and play more forward because the Stretford End will suck it in for you.

"The team deserved more than to be defeated today".

The Saints shocked Old Trafford when they took the lead when young French full-back Yan Valery scored a scorching goal in the 26th minute. Just one minute after replacing the injured Alexis Sanchez, Diogo Dalot gave the ball to Pereira, and the Brazil worldwide curled a stunning effort into the back of the net to equalise on 53 minutes.

After a lacklustre first-half display, United were now in an irrepressible mood and took the lead just six minutes later through Lukaku.

Sanchez went down following a collision in the Saints' penalty area, and was forced off shortly afterwards, with Diogo Dalot replacing him.
