United 2-2 Southampton: The Good, The Bad And The Ugly.

With Manchester United up against Southampton, Chelsea and Leicester in one night, it was no surprise that climbing to 3rd on the EPL table tonight was 'Mission impossible'.

Here are three things #ManUtdNaijaFM learnt from the heartbreak:

Martial and Rashford gave one of their finest performances as a pair tonight. Rashford who had been poor since return from injury played his best game today.

Martial's hold up play and assist for Rashford's goal as well as his own 'bullet goal' were fantabulous. It was his 50th Premier league goal. Kudos to him.

Paul 'Ikenna' Pogba started the game on a sloppy note and was responsible for the first goal. He made up for it though, being involved in the set up of both goals. He had to come off.

Mason 'Bazuka' Greenwood was not given any space to load his 'bazuka' not to talk of shooting any shot! Southampton came for the young lad and locked him with a rusted padlock.

Southampton who had nothing to gain or lose from the match, brought a  'basin of San-San'  to pour inside United's small cup of 'garri'.
An injury time goal by Micheal Obafemi felt like a dagger to the heart.

Luke 'Ajebota' Shaw who had been in fine form, was lost to injury after he twisted is ankle. What a ruin to his 25th birthday celebration.
Brandon Williams his replacement also sustained a nasty gash and had to be withdrawn. 

IN THE END, it was a painful draw, one that felt like a loss. 
Sadly for the records, United are yet to win a game officiated by Chris Kavanagh!
The 'village people' of Chelsea and Leicester were in form tonight.

What went wrong today? Let's have your thoughts.
