I decided to rest some of my key players ahead of Tottenham match and it was an exciting match which ended 4-2 victory to Man Utd.
Danny Welbeck gave Man Utd the lead just 45 seconds from the start of the match but it doesn’t take long before Rickie Lambert equalised in the 7th min with a header. Richard Chaplow then put Southampton ahead with a screamer from the edge of the area in the 35th min. Man Utd responded in the 39th min through Welbeck’s curling shot to make the score level 2-2 at half-time.
In the second-half, Man Utd kept their pressure on Southampton and in the 60th min Danny Welbeck completed his hat-trick with another superb goal from 18 yards out. Federico Macheda rounded the victory in the 86th min with a well executed finish.
Despite conceding two goals, I’m pleased with my youngsters performance today.
Man of the Match: Danny Welbeck
