Southampton’s Premier League season continued with a win against Man United at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Charlie Austin marked his Southampton debut, having watched on last weekend after his arrival from QPR, with a winner from the bench in a one-nil win at Man United.

A goalless draw looked destined to the result at Old Trafford, which would have certainly been more welcome for Southampton than the hosts, but seven-minutes into his Saints career Austin, who had been fouled for the set piece, was left unmarked to head in a James Ward-Prowse header three-minutes from time.

The four-match losing run away from home ending has helped Southampton close the gap on Man United to just four-points with United now only three places ahead of the Saints.

Sadio Mane, against a side that tried to sign him in the summer, Shane Long and Victor Wanyama had the best chances prior to Austin but none could force David de Gea into a save until the Spanish ‘keeper was beaten!

These were the other results.

Saturday 23rd January 2016
Norwich 4-5 Liverpool
Crystal Palace 1-3 Tottenham
Leicester 3-0 Stoke
Man Utd 0-1 Southampton
Sunderland 1-1 Bournemouth
Watford 2-1 Newcastle
West Brom 0-0 Aston Villa

These games are to be played.

A stunning game between Norwich and Liverpool, with the Reds edging out a dramatic nine-goal thriller at Carrow Road to beat the Canaries five-four was easily the ‘stand out’ result of the weekend, arguably game of the Premier League season so far!
