Casemiro is substituted as Southampton earn a point at Manchester United.

Southampton are still bottom of the Premier League after drawing a point against a Manchester United team that was reduced to ten men for nearly an hour during a thrilling match at Old Trafford.

Casemiro’s second red card of the season gave the visitors a numerical advantage, but they were unable to capitalize despite several chances.

David de Gea needed to make a brilliant reaction save to turn away Theo Walcott’s close-range header even before Casemiro’s early exit for a dangerous tackle on Carlos Alcaraz.

After the break, De Gea made a one-handed save when Walcott broke clear of the home defense, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka cleared off the line when Scott McTominay turned a Kyle Walker-Peters cross towards his own goal. Furthermore, James Ward-free-kick Prowse’s cleared the bar, and Walker-Peters hit a post with an angled drive for the visitors.

United also had some dangerous moments, with captain Bruno Fernandes’ goalbound effort being tipped on to the inside of a post by Gavin Bazunu.

The result keeps United in the top four, while Southampton is effectively three points from safety due to their goal difference, with 12 games remaining in the season.
