a fellow countryman, who snuck into the penalty area unnoticed and cushioned an excellent volley into the bottom corner.

In the 65th minute, Southampton had a chance to tie the score when De Gea was pushed into action. Joe Aribo’s forceful header on an Adam Armstrong cross from the byline forced the United No. 1 to make a fantastic save,

and Walker-Peters glanced the rebound over.
