Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men were denied a Champions League spot after Michael Obafemi’s late goal helped Ralph Hasenhuttl’s Southampton secure a 2-2 draw against Manchester United during their Premier League game at Old Trafford on Monday night.
Southampton kicked off the game brilliantly and led early on as Ings robbed Pogba on the edge of the area with Redmond crossing for Armstrong to fire home.
Rashford had a neat finish ruled out for offside before he pulled his side level, slamming a shot into the bottom corner after good work from Martial.
Martial then turned the game on its head two minutes later, coming infield from the left and finding the top corner to notch his 50th Premier League goal.
90′ + 6′ Southampton pulled level. Obafemi got ahead of Lindelof to flick Bednarek’s header into the net from a Ward-Prowse corner to secure a 2-2 draw for the visitors.

United couldn’t hold on as substitute Obafemi turned home Bednarek’s flick-on from a corner in the 96th minute.
United looked to be going third until that late drama, but they’ll have to settle for fifth place with three games to go.
That would mean no Champions League next season after the Man City news earlier today. Southampton stay in 12th, going level on points with Everton ahead of them.
