ROMERO SAVES A PENALTY TO CLINCH A POINT FOR MAN UNITED

Sergio Romero made a series of fine saves as Southampton and Manchester United played out a goalless draw at St Mary’s.

Saints should have gone ahead within five minutes when Eric Bailly was adjudged to have handled in the area, but United goalkeeper Romero saved Manolo Gabbiadini’s penalty.

Bailly’s sharp shot was stopped by Fraser Forster, as the United defender created his side’s best chance of the first half.

Southampton forced Romero to make multiple blocks after the break while Anthony Martial hit the post from 25 yards for the visitors.

Romero pulled off a superb low save to stop Gabbiadini’s strike, as Southampton missed their third penalty in the past five games.

FINAL RESULT

Southampton 0-0 Manchester United
