Saints and United draw a blank

Southampton and Manchester United played out a goalless draw in a archetypal end-of-season nothing-to-play-for clash.

In a match that was a replay of the League Cup final, it did not deliver like the showpiece at Wembley earlier this year which saw United claim a 3-2 win – as the two sides dished up a relatively forgettable 90-minutes.

There was some excitement early doors at St Mary’s when Southampton were awarded a penalty.

Eric Bailly was adjudged to have handled in the box, but Sergio Romero’s excellent recent form in the United goal continued with an excellent save from Manolo Gabbiadini.

At the right end of the table Bailly almost put United ahead but Fraser Forster produced a smart save to keep him at bay.

Southampton were there better side in the second-half but Romero produced a number of saves to seal a point for sixth-placed United.
