Southampton 0 – 1 Manchester United: Lukaku goal secures smash-and-grab win [Best Tweets]

Manchester United earned a hard-fought victory against Southampton at the St Mary’s stadium, owing to a goal scored by Romelu Lukaku.

Manchester United fought hard against a stubborn Southampton side, and recorded a win as Romelu Lukaku went on to score his sixth Premier League goal of the season. Lukaku broke the deadlock within 20 minutes, converting the rebound to a goal, after Fraser Forster parried a header which was a result of Ashley Young’s cross.

Tonight’s result will maintain United’s unbeaten start to their league campaign, even though they are second in the table, behind Manchester City on goal difference. Their latest victory was quite well-deserved, especially since  Southampton piled on the pressure in the second half.

Jose Mourinho will be a happy man after the victory since the team did astoundingly well and did not break under pressure. The tone on Twitter was a bit different though since many fans did not agree with the manager’s decision of switching to a more defensive play after half-time.

Regardless, there were some who were happy with the fact that United managed to pick up three points.

Romelu Lukaku appeared to be a name on everybody’s minds as fans heaped praise on the striker.

On a side note, a lot was said about Jose Mourinho being sent to the stands. Take a look.
