Manchester United missed the chance to move to the top four despite a 2-1 lead against Saints in the first half has they crumbled back to the fifth spot.

Both Chelsea and Leicester City lost at the weekend which was a boost for United, victory against the Saints could have moved United to 3rd but was there was another twist as Micheal Obafemi 96th minutes saw United moved back to 5th same points with Leicester City but separated with goals difference.

The visitor went in front after Armstrong fired home in the 12th minutes but United was not held back for long as Marcus Rashford leveled up in the 20th minutes to square scores up before Antonio Martial thunderous finish put the hosts ahead three minutes later.

But little did they know that Saints took advantage when they equalized in the sixth minute of injury time. Ward-Prowse delivered a trademark in the swinging corner, which Jan Bednarek glanced on at the near post. It landed to substitute Obafemi, who turned the ball home with his heel to round off another fine away performance from the Saints.Saints took advantage when they equalised in the sixth minute of injury time.

It was quite unfortunate for United as they sink back to fifth with three games left to end the season.
