Man U clinch second PL spot post 3-2 win over Southampton

Johannesburg: Anthony Martial scored twice to help Manchester United claim a 3-2 victory over Southampton in the ongoing Premier League match at St. Mary’s Stadium on Sunday.

With the win, United have climbed up to the second spot in the Premier League table, with 13 points from six games.

Martial scored first goal in 34th minute that allowed United to level the score after Graziano Pelle’s 13th-minute opener, Sport24 reported.

The 19-year-old put his side ahead by scoring another goal in the early second half.

United midfielder Juan Mata extended their lead in 68th minute, with Pelle’s second goal coming too late to affect the outcome.

Earlier, Martial, who became world’s most expensive football teenager after joining Manchester United, had scored a memorable debut goal to help the club clinch a 3-1 win over Liverpool.

United will next lock horns with Sunderland on September 26.(ANI)
