Revitalised Lukaku excels on return as Manchester United's main man

Pogba claimed an assist in United’s win vs Palace

Find out how well Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's players performed as Manchester United beat Southampton 3-2 at Old Trafford in the Premier League.

The Norwegian saw his side secure a hard comeback victory against the Saints who proved to be stubborn opposition.

Yann Valery put the Saints into the lead with his first goal in professional football, but Andreas Pereira netted an equally impressive strike to get United back on level terms.

United appeared to be heading towards a disappointing home draw when substitute Fred exchanged passes with Luke Shaw and found the in-form Belgian on the edge of the area before Lukaku did the rest with a pinpoint 18-yard finish into the bottom corner.

One would expect the creative winger to be able to take advantage of having two in-form players in front of him but unfortunately that wasn't the case.

Asked if he had told Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward which players he feels should stay or go, Solskjaer is quoted as saying by Sky Sports: "Yes, I have".

To make matters worse he couldn't finish the match and was replaced by Diogo Dalot after picking up a knock.




It's hard to compare them, but Edwin and Peter were never player of the year, David's meant so many points for us over the years and I would say he's the best goalkeeper in the world, Peter was at the time and Edwin at the time as well, I'm delighted with David and his personality is fantastic.

And the home side got an opportunity to add gloss to the scoreline.

But that was not the end of the scoring as Lukaku snatched a late victor - and there was even time for Paul Pogba to see a stoppage time penalty saved.

"He's got high energy quality in his passing, crossing and shooting, so pleased for him, a goal and an assist, it's a nice day for him to remember".

After losing 2-1 at Burnley last Saturday, Pedro dealt them the first blow at Stamford Bridge before Kieran Trippier scored a calamitous own goal to seal their fate.

Sanchez joins a long injury list ahead of Wednesday's crunch Champions League last-16 second leg at Paris St Germain. Let us know in the comments section below.

"A lot of very good decisions we made in the first half and in the second half we were not scared if they put more pressure on us but we had a few crucial things".
