Ighalo's Run Of 14 Consecutive Games Halted As Man Utd Drop Points Vs Southampton
Goal difference is keeping Manchester United behind fourth-placed Leicester City in the race for the Champions League spots after they were held to a 2-2 draw by Southampton at Old Trafford on Monday night, allnigeriasoccer.com reports.

Manchester United's run of four consecutive victories in the Premier League ended against a fit Southampton side.

Former Nigeria international Odion Ighalo's run of fourteen consecutive matches for the Red Devils since he stepped foot in Manchester was halted as he was a non-playing substitute against the Saints.

Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood were picked to start in attack ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations top scorer.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær's third segment of substitutions saw him introduce Scott McTominay and Daniel James in the 84th minute, which effectively stopped the Shanghai Shenhua loanee from making his tenth Premier League appearance.

It was a positive start for Southampton as Stuart Armstrong opened the scoring in the 12th minute but Manchester United hit back, scoring two goals in the space of three first-half minutes through Rashford and Martial.

A sluggish and tired United side thought they had taken all three points and they were punished as Michael Obafemi, who entered the game as a substitute in the 87th minute, netted the equaliser in the dying moments of the game.
