Southampton 2-3 Manchester United: Cavani’s brace seals a magnificent come-back win


‘Super-sub’ In Sunday’s game of the 2020-21 Premier League, Edinson Cavani scored a twice-a-hand victory to Manchester United for ages. The Red Devils have won a new high for the club in eight straight games. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given out his first Premier League in what they could call a two-half game, the new summer with Donny van de Beek. In the first minute, the end-to-end play was absorbed with openings on both sides. But it was the Saints who handled Thiers most effectively as they ran to a lead of 2-0.

In both goals, James Ward-Prowse had a hand. Jan Bednarek led his corner kick to open the game. Ward-Prowse then took a superb free-kick from the border of the box to beat David de Gea, Manchester United, in a nearby post. De Gea took a knock to try to save the free-kick of Ward-Prowse and did not proceed for half the time after making its 500th appearance in the club. This led Manchester United – Dean Henderson and Edinson Cavani – to two big introductions, as Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looked for a hole in the back and was desperate for the first few goals. The dual replacement at the breaking went well as Manchester United finally achieved an impressive triumph. Henderson was checked regularly but took on his first outing in the Premier League with Manchester United. Cavani had a hand in all three goals in Manchester United, with a helper and two targets, one of which was an injury-time winner.
