    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.

    Virtually Safe !

    Not mathematically safe yet, but the Swansea Man U result means it would have to be one hell of a swing on goal difference.

    Lots of planning

    I don't want this to be a thread about the players you think we'll sell, but rather, which players do you WANT to go this summer?

    For me

    Find it strange that it hasn't been mentioned before, but as we are only 3 points behind West Brom who are 8th, does this mean we could possibly qualify

    10th time lucky against big 6.

    Would like to see us attack them. Sit back and defend deep and they will win.
