Fernandez is keen to continue like this
Bruno Fernandes’ goal was enough to win Manchester United this afternoon. Speaking after the match, he urged his team to maintain their positive performance.
Fernandes said: “We knew playing against Southampton was not easy. We’ve really struggled with this over the past few years. We knew sometimes we had to suffer. This is the game, every game is tough. Well done for us, it’s a game of three. Huge points as we continue.
“One win doesn’t make the league, two games don’t make the league. We have to continue in that spirit for the rest of the season. This club is asking for it. We said before the game, we set the standard, so we have to continue with that standard.”

Southampton can take the pluses
Ralph Hessenhuttl’s team put in a good performance and looked impressive throughout despite coming off without anything.
Athletic Jacob Tanswell had his say.
Foot: # Saints FC 0-1 #MUFC
So it is a pity not to get anything. It’s a much better team and they’ve played in a way that you usually associate with the best of Hasenhuttl.
The three new signings were excellent. Lots of positives but a lot of things you already knew (Striker wanted)

Fatah: Southampton 0-1 Manchester United
Man United stuck and won its second match in a row. Bruno Fernandes’ shot early in the second half was enough for them to claim back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time since February.
Southampton had plenty of chances of their own and would feel as if they could win the match themselves. The Ralph Hassnotl team put in a good but professional performance from the visitors who rose to sixth in the table.
