Ole Gunnar Solskjaer rubbing salt into Saints’ wounds.
Manchester United came from behind to secure a brilliant 3-2 win against Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday.
A lot of credit goes to Edinson Cavani for coming off the bench to assist Bruno Fernandes and score two goals of his own.
It could have been a comfortable win for the Reds had they hit the target more often, and this is why I think Cavani is our new main striker. It is bad news for Anthony Martial but Mason Greenwood has time on his side, and ultimately both players should be trying to learn from the Uruguayan striker.
They are much younger and don’t have the same experience as Cavani.
I wouldn’t go as far to say Cavani single-handedly won us the game at St. Mary’s but his contribution was massive towards our victory.
Solskjaer was delighted with the result which saw his side fight back from an uncomfortable two-goal deficit. It showed that his players can rise to the occasion when pressure is on.
The United manager even took a swipe at journalist Simon Peach, who not only covers United for Press Association but is also a Southampton supporter.
Solskjaer said: “You don’t sound too happy there Simon, I don’t know why?”
Salt into the wound… 😂 https://t.co/ZHuhZKZg59

Peach took the joke well, as expected.
