Former Leicester City and Derby County star Robbie Savage was impressed with Southampton’s performance against Manchester United in the Premier League this evening.

Robbie Savage has hailed the performance of Southampton against Manchester United at Old Trafford this evening.

Ronald Koeman’s side were the underdogs heading into the Premier League clash, but it was them who picked up the three points.

Dusan Tadic scored the only goal of the game in the 69th minute when he tapped in from close range after Graziano Pelle's effort had come back off the far post.

Southampton were the better team in the game and were worthy of the three points, and Savage believes so as well.

"I don't want to hear how bad Manchester United were, Southampton were great,” the former Leicester City and Derby County midfielder told BBC Sport.

“They were tactically immense and defensively solid. A well-deserved three points. What a fantastic performance and Southampton were disciplined throughout.”

The win this evening was Southampton’s first in the league against United in 27 years and maintains their chances of a top-four finish.

The Saints are currently third in the Premier League table with 39 points from 21 matches, two points clear of United, who are fourth.
