A second half brace from Romelu Lukaku and an Andreas Pereira wonder-goal sealed a last-gasp 3-2 comeback win for Manchester United against Southampton.

Manchester United came back from being a goal down to defeat Southampton 3-2 at Old Trafford on Saturday, to move into the fourth spot in the Premier League standings.

The Red Devils were pegged back in the 26th minute, as young wing-back Yan Valery struck home a wonderful goal from 25 yards out. Having failed to find a way back in the first half, Manchester United reinstated parity in the 53rd minute, courtesy of a screamer from midfielder Andreas Pereira.

Minutes later, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men took the lead as Romelu Lukaku fired in a low curling effort to continue his good scoring form after his brace against Crystal Palace. The Saints were back on level terms though, when James Ward-Prowse hit home another stunner in the 75th minute, but a last-gasp strike from Lukaku in the 88th minute settled the tie.

Manchester United had a chance to make it four, but Paul Pogba’s penalty was saved by Angus Gunn. The result meant Solskjaer’s men moved back to the fourth place in the table, following Arsenal’s 1-1 draw against Tottenham. And here’s how the Red Devils’ fans reacted to the victory;

Lukaku came up clutch for Manchester United, just like he did against Crystal Palace, scoring two goals once more. And the fans took to social media to celebrate the Belgian’s match-winning display against the Saints;
