In the 17th minute of tonight’s Premier League encounter between Manchester United and Southampton, the Red Devils took the lead through the unlikely Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Marcus Rashford cut the ball back to Luke Shaw on the left-wing with the full-back setting the ball up with a tidy touch before he showed the club he was signed from his brilliant quality.
Shaw floated a dangerous cross into the box that evaded everyone and left Wan-Bissaka open at the far post, a late challenge from Danny Ings was not enough to keep the ace side-footing the ball in.
At a second glance, Wan-Bissaka’s finish could be seen as somewhat lucky, but it’s exactly the fortune the Red Devils need to get back to winning ways.

This marks a perfect, dominant start for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side against a Southampton team that ruined their plans immediately with an early sending off.
