Cavani comes off the bench to rescue Manchester United from defeat

1 min read

Edinson Cavani headed a dramatic last-gasp winner for Manchester United who came back from two goals down to win 3-2 at Southampton.

United started brightly but were caught cold from a superb corner from James Ward-Prowse in the 23rd minute, with Jan Bednarek flicking home at the near post, before set-piece expert Ward-Prowse curled a David Beckham-esque free kick past a stunned David de Gea to make it two in the 33rd minute.

De Gea was not able to continue in the second half, with Dean Henderson coming on, but it was another half-time change, Cavani, who changed the game, as he first set up Bruno Fernandes to get United back in it in the 59th minute, before popping up with his second Premier League goal in the 74th minute to level thing up.

And El Matador was not done there, as he headed a 92nd-minute winner to ensure United picked up a club-record eighth successive Premier League away win in enthralling style.
