    STORY OF THE GAME:

    Charlie Austin made an instant impact on his Southampton debut to grab all three points for Ronald Koeman's side.

    Saints chalked up a second consecutive win at Old Trafford when Austin emerged from the bench before finding space in the area to thump home a header from a James Ward-Prowse free-kick.

    The match was otherwise dour and contained few by way of clear chances, with Louis van Gaal and his side booed off after going eight hours and 26 minutes without scoring a first half goal at Old Trafford.
