Lukaku scores brace, leads Man United to 3-2 win over Southampton

The English Premier League between Manchester United vs Southampton on March 02, scheduled to begin at 3:00 PM (Uk Time), and it will be played at the Old Trafford. "They know that they are part of a special club that can do something like this".

If the Premier League table reflected the last ten games only, relegation candidates Fulham, Brighton and Huddersfield would be the only three teams below Bournemouth and Saturday's opponents, Manchester City, would be second only to their resurgent neighbours, United.

Within six minutes of drawing the home side level, Pereira pushed the ball through to Lukaku. "I've been part of that so many times myself", the caretaker boss said.

French midfielder Paul Pogba had a chance to increase Man United's margin of victory, but his penalty try in the dying minutes was saved by Gunn.

When interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced José Mourinho in December, United were in sixth spot, 11 points off the Champions League qualification positions.

He said: "The dressing room was bouncing, they were happy, looking forward to Wednesday".

"I think I always did it, sometimes for the good of the immediate needs of the club and group".

"He has been on a good run but he has been an important player for us and will bounce back".

The race for Champions League qualification remains tight, though, with United only a point ahead of Arsenal in fourth and two points in front of Chelsea.

"We know it's going to be hard", the caretaker manager, who was also missing defensive trio Phil Jones, Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia at the weekend, told reporters.

Not a great weekend for the column though we did call Barcelona right at odds against in the Clasico. They could have taken the lead after 12 minutes when Jannik Vestergaard climbed unchallenged to meet a James Ward-Prowse corner and headed wastefully over the bar, and might have had a penalty when Chris Smalling got away with a blatant tug on Ryan Bertrand's shirt.

"I just said to him there, "get ready for the next one, because you're going to take that as well", Solskjaer said.

"He's responded fantastically to everyone who wants to criticise him because there's no-one who practices finishing as much as he does", Solskjaer added.

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.

David de Gea will retain his place in goal, with fellow safe pair of hands Sergio Romero available to deputise from the bench if required.
