Manchester United beat Southampton 1-0; Bruno Fernandes became the winner

Manchester United beat Southampton 1-0 at St Mary's Stadium on Saturday to register their first win in the Premier League.

Bruno Fernandes scored the match's only goal in the 55th minute to ensure a win for Manchester United.

Manchester United secured their first clean sheet in the 2022-23 Premier League season, registering a 1-0 win against Southampton at St Mary's Stadium on Saturday. Bruno Fernandes' opening goal difference was in the second half as Man United registered their first win on the road since February this year. After a goalless first half, United changed gears several times in the second half by counter-attacking. In the 55th minute, Diogo Dalot ran with the ball to the right flank and whipped in a low cross for Bruno, who drove it home, giving Eric ten Haag's team a decent lead.

Southampton tried to make a comeback in the match within 10 minutes, Adam Armstrong guiding the ball to Joe Aribo, but David de Gea made a fine save to maintain a thin lead. In stoppage time, St. came close again with a cross from Armstrong, met by an overhead kick by Seiko Mara. Dio Dalot, who has an assist in this match, denied the draw with a crucial clearance. With the win, the Red Devils moved to sixth with six points from four matches, with Southampton 13th on the table with four points from any match.
