(Video) Man United go behind to Southampton after poor set-piece defending

Manchester United and Southampton are currently embroiled in a tense affair down on the South Coast in a game which has seen a Jan Bednarek header give the Saints a 1-0 lead.

United came into this afternoon’s game looking to close the gap on the league leaders after having two matches in hand, however, despite the Reds’ decent start, they have fallen behind after just 23-minutes.

Some poor set-piece defending saw attacker Marcus Rashford fail to mark the commanding Bednarek which resulted in a looping header beating number-one David De Gea.

United need to come out with all guns blazing now, not an ideal start, at all.
