General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +4 Penalty shout for Southampton as Ferdinand clambers all over his man to head clear, but Mike Dean is not interested. United in possession again here - and that's it at St Mary's!
90' +3 There's about 30 seconds to go here - can Saints salvage a point?
90' +2 R. van Persie has scored a goal for Manchester United! Assist by Nani.
GOAL!! VAN PERSIE DOES IT AGAIN!! Nani's corner is right on the money and Van Persie flicks a header beyond Davis to net his 100th Premier League goal! Sensational!
90' Four minutes to play here - can someone find a winner?
89' Great corner from Ward-Prowse, and Vidic just gets a touch to turn it behind. A scramble ensues from Fox's follow-up delivery, and eventually it drops to him 25 yards out but he smashes well over.
87' R. van Persie has scored a goal for Manchester United!
GOAL!! 2-2, AND IT'S VAN PERSIE WHO'S DONE IT!!
Nani's corner is picked up by Rafael, who crosses for Rio Ferdinand. His header smacks off the post and Van Persie taps it home! We're level at St Mary's, but it's not over yet...
86' The last time United lost their first two away games of the season, they were relegated. Now I'm not suggesting the downright bizarre here, but if this does remain 2-1, some serious questions will be asked.
85' Southampton are working harder than ever now to restrict United to long, hopeful passes. Terrific defending from Nigel Adkins' side.
83' Southampton put the ball out as Rafael gets gingerly to his feet, and United return possession. Hernandez tries to reach Ferdinand's ball but Hooivelt does well to intervene. Time running out here for the visitors.
81' Nani's delivery, however, is bizarrely clipped to the edge of the area towards Rafael, who can't reach it and fouls his man. What a waste from United there.
