A goal from Bruno Fernandes gave continuity to the improvement of the Man Utdwho came out with all three points from St. Mary’s Stadium against Southampton extend its take-off in the First coinciding with the debut as a “network” of Carlos Henrique Casemiro. The Brazilian ex-Madridista made his debut as the ‘red devil’ in the 80th minute, replacing Anthony Elanga. Before, Cristiano Ronaldo, again a substitute, had jumped on the pitch for the second week in a row. Just like Captain Harry Maguire who disappeared from Erik Ten Hag’s lists.
Casemiro started the game on course for Manchester United thanks to a Bruno Fernandes goal that unraveled a complicated exit that led to the United project’s second straight win. The ghost-hunting visitors who for seven days wondered about this new project ended up asking for the time.
United had not won back-to-back games since last February, when they found themselves with a more uncomfortable rival than expected. His initial version had nothing to do with the one he showed against Liverpool, full of momentum and enthusiasm. At St. Mary’s, he had to deal with the order of an opponent reinforced by the comeback made last Saturday against Leicester who gave him his first victory of the course.
However, he gradually imposes his talent on the men of Ten Hag. Southampton conceded ground and the ball and Gavin Bazunu was soon threatened. It is not explained how the tie was not broken until the twentieth minute when Manchester United could have scored five times on the same play. Bruno Fernandes, Anthony Elanga and Christian Eriksen fired several times at home. They took advantage of every rebound from Bazunu and also from Mohammed Salisu who prevented the ball from reaching the net. Nobody could beat the Ivorian goalkeeper and the action ended in a corner.
Southampton also had their chance when, in the home stretch before intermission, they broke away from the Reds’ dominance. Che Adams was able to score and David De Gea breathed.
United, with Dane Christian Eriksen at the helm, burst on with more conviction, with a different mindset going into the second half. He quickly circled Bazunu’s box although in combined action in the 55th minute a cross from the right by Diogo Dalot was completed by Bruno Fernandes who entered the box alone and almost from the edge of the box, executed a shot without dropping the ball which went past Bazunu.
The “saints” reacted firmly. The Hasenhuttl team did not give up. Manchester United suffered in those moments, entrenched in their area and under the protection of David De Gea who emerged as a savior by avoiding the equalizer from a point-blank header from Joe Aribo. field. It was the first change for Ten Hag who used the Portuguese after the hour mark in place of Jadon Sancho.
The law was then imposed by Lisandro González, Raphael Varane and, above all, Scott McTominay, protectors of the visitors’ advantage. They were joined by Casemiro, who entered the pitch to play the final ten minutes. He took the place of Anthony Elanga. More firmness for the net middle. The Brazilian accompanied McTominay and Ericsen in front of the back.
The last round was a nightmare for Manchester United. Boxed in his domain. On the defensive. Question of survival against Southampton who played all or nothing in the last minutes. He had his options but the reds resisted to ensure another victory which nourishes the credibility of their project.

And, as is often the case in football, the manager should stick with the same side that won at Old Trafford. Thus Cristiano Ronaldo, who can still leave the club, and Maguire would again be alternatives. Meanwhile, Casemiro, a surprise signing, has already trained with his teammates and would be considered for the signing.
For their part, Southampton had activity in the midweek in the League Cup. The Premier League side beat Cambridge 0-3 and advanced to the next round.
