General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +3 Some hopeful long-range efforts are blocked by United defenders and, as the ball rolls clear, the referee calls time as a relieved Manchester United claim the spoils in this one!
90' +2 Rooney wins his side a throw in the left-back position, playing the ball off Clyne, and that might be that - there's one minute remaining.
90' As three minutes added time are called, Lambert heads goalwards from a long way out. It's a hopeful effort from a deep cross and it sails harmlessly wide.
89' Manchester United are under enormous pressure here; Southampton have played the last two minutes in their half but have unable to penetrate the glut of players behind the ball for the home side.
86' Southampton, after a sustained spell of possession, whip the ball in towards Lambert, the striker headed down but Lallana, instead of shooting, tries an ill-fated flick onto his teammate. It doesn't work out and the chance goes begging.
84' Southampton's pressure has begun to mount again as a heroic block from Vidic prevents a Lambert effort from flying goalwards.
83' Rafael gets yellow.
Southampton's early dominant start to the half has subsided somewhat, though you can expect that pressure to return with not much time left to grab that equaliser.
80' Rooney really should have got his hat-trick there; after a lovely ball from Van Persie put him clean through on goal, his touch let him down though and Boruc came out at his feet to knock the ball to safety.
79' Van Persie earns his side a corner as Yoshida tracks him well to block the cross. The corner comes to nothing though as Hooiveld clears at the near post.
78' L. Shaw enters the game and replaces D. Fox.
