Red Devils Outlast the Saints

Maybe Manchester United needs to get readjusted to the Champions League, but domestically, they're sorted.

Further evidence of that came on the South Coast, as they defeated an impressive Southampton side, 2-3.

This match lived up to every expectation in terms of entertainment. As to the Premiership table, the van Gaal army marche on.

The Saints are never shy, and they definitely brought the game to the Devils.

How many outstanding saves does on expect from David de Gea? Wake up, defense. But Graziano Pellè surely didn't mind. Nice follow, dude, and nicer celebration to commemorate the Rugby World Cup.

The Saints then got 'way too accommodating of their guests, as Martial was literally gifted another goal:

Looks like Thierry Henry reincarnated.

United saved their best for last, when Juan Mata tallied the goal of the game.

This is the Red Devil style that everyone expects to see.

But Southampton weren't done. Pellè popped another one in the 86th minute:

If de Gea was stunned, then there's no 'keeper who can save that.
