Manchester United beat Southampton at St Mary’s thanks to a wonderful team move finished off by Bruno Fernandes. 

United dug deep to end a run of seven-straight defeats away from home, as Southampton pushed them all the way but Erik ten Hag’s side secured back-to-back wins thanks largely to grit. 

This is the kind of display, and result, United needed to follow up their impressive win against Liverpool on Monday. 

Erik ten Hag will be delighted with the focus of his side but he knows there’s still plenty of work to do. 

It wasn’t pretty but United got the basics right again: This was far from pretty but United did the basics well, just like they did against Liverpool, 

They secured their first away win in over six months in the Premier League and after they went 1-0 up they simply sat back and soaked up pressure 

Lisandro Martinez, Tyrell Malacia and Raphael Varane were all solid and David de Gea came up with a big save when he was needed 

As the old saying goes: ‘Winning ugly is better than drawing pretty.’ Or something like that…

McTominay lucky to get away with no handball call: McTominay’s hand hit the ball not once, twice but three times in the same action in the second half as he battled with Che Adams in the box
