Manchester United missed out on an opportunity to leapfrog Chelsea and Leicester into places for the Champions League after a dramatic draw against Southampton.

Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial turned the tables after an early shot by Stuart Armstrong and looked to secure it for United but Michael Obafemi ‘s injury-time header denied Ole’s men a vital three-point.

Manchester United had missed the chance to third after Michael Obafemi equalized for Southampton in the 95th minute. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘s side walked into the fight on a fine streak of 17 undefeated matches and five straight victories. But they were stunned to death when the sub popped up to poke home a corner to hold United fourth.

Old Trafford had a surprise coming through early doors when a Paul Pogba mistake led Stuart Armstrong to shoot the visitors ahead.
However, the in-form Red Devils quickly bounced back in through Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

The England striker scored first on 20 minutes before the Frenchman flipped the scoreline over his head just three minutes later. And they looked at the course to claim the points right to the dramatic end.
