Southampton 2-3 Man United: Cavani at the double as Red Devils pull incredible comeback at St. Mary's

Manchester United produced an incredible comeback on Sunday evening, coming from two goals down to win 3-2 away to Southampton in an entertaining clash.

The Reds found themselves trailing 2-0 at halftime thanks to Jan Bednarek's 23rd-minute header and a James Ward-Prowse sumptuous freekick. 

United though battled in the second period and were repaid with Edinson Cavani stepping off the bench to lead the comeback with a  brace.  

He first delivered a perfect pass for Bruno Fernandes to pull one back on the hour mark, before scoring the second from close range after the Portugal international's shot was repelled. 

The Uruguayan then ensured Manchester united left  St. Mary's with maximum points when he headed Marcus Rashford's ball in the 93rd minute. 

The win saw United incredibly move to seventh on the table on 16 points, one below the Saints on fifth.  

Ole  Gunnar Solskjaer will however face a fresh injury worry after David De Gea was withdrawn at half-time. 

The Spanish international seemed to have hurt himself as he tried to keep out Ward-Prowse's first-half free-kick, and was replaced by Dean Henderson. 

Attention now shifts to midweek Champions League action with a match against French side Paris  Saint-Germain at Old Trafford.
