Despite a fabulous start on Matchday 1, Manchester United have not confirmed their start to the season. Held in check on the Southampton lawn (1-1), Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have long had the opportunities to take the advantage, but have never really managed to seize the opportunities. As for the Saints, they held on to the shock and even offered themselves clear opportunities, most of the time stopped by David De Gea.
Very quickly, the Red Devils took the game on their own. Thanks to an excellent Paul Pogba, real maestro of the team today, the Mancuniens got a lot of chances in the first minutes of the meeting. However, Southampton reacted. While the high pressing of the Saints began to intensify, it was finally Che Adams who managed to arm a strike at the entrance to the surface, countered by Fred and too far from De Gea’s gloves to stop it (30th ). A goal against the grain of what had been happening since the start of the meeting.

Pogba, again and again
Obviously, Paul Pogba’s teammates did not let this match go without reacting. The French international was also at the origin of United’s equalizer, delivering an assist to Mason Greenwood, who scored between the legs of McCarthy (55th). A consecration after a good performance from Pogba, who delivered his 5th assist in just two league matches.
One would have thought, as the domination leaned towards the visitors, that the Saints were going to suffer at the end of the match. However, the hosts of the meeting provided the best chances of the end of the match, putting David De Gea to work on numerous occasions. The stoppage in the last minutes of the game against Armstrong when he was almost alone in front of goals is proof of this. The two teams finally parted ways with a draw and regrets on both sides. Manchester United are not continuing their good momentum launched last week and will have to revive against Wolverhampton next week.
Tottenham on its way
For its part, Tottenham won on the lawn of Wolverhampton on the smallest of the margins (1-0). A victory thanks to the penalty goal of Dele Alli (9th). This is the second victory for Spurs Nuno Espirito Santo who start this Premier League season perfectly, after their victory against Manchester City last week. Next match for Tottenham: the return of the play-offs for the Europa League against Paços Ferreira, against whom they lost 1-0 last Thursday.
A big success for United, a recital for Pogba
