The Fallout: Southampton 1-1 Manchester United highlights and reaction

Every angle of the lunchtime kick-off covered in one place as BTSport.com provides the best of the match action, exclusive post-match interviews, pundit analysis, social media reaction and much more.

Southampton held on to secure a point against Manchester United at St Mary’s this afternoon despite Saints defender Kevin Danso’s second-half dismissal.

United had taken the lead in the 10th minute after Daniel James fired his third goal of the season home in some style when he found the top corner with a rasping drive.

The hosts improved after the break as United’s attacking threat waned and Jannik Vestergaard’s towering header was well-deserved when it arrived in the 58th minute.

Danso’s red card led to some late pressure from the Red Devils, but solid defending and smart goalkeeping from Angus Gunn ensured the score stayed level after 90 minutes on the south coast.

Man of the match

Danish centre-back Jannik Vestergaard scored his first ever Southampton goal to haul the Saints level against United this afternoon.

The 27-year-old climbed highest to nod home a hopeful Kevin Danso cross in the second-half, but Vestergaard can be equally delighted with his defensive contribution after a fine all-round performance today helped secure a point for the home side.

"It was a difficult decision between him and his defensive partner Bednarek, but I think the goalscorer Vestergaard just about gets the Man of the Match award from me today.- Martin Keown

Tweet of the game

Man Utd winger Daniel James has taken to life in the Premier League like a duck to water. The Welshman found the net in the first half with a stunning effort from the edge of the box to take his season tally to three, already equalling Alexis Sanchez's United Premier League goal haul.
