Manchester United U21s defeated Southampton 2-1 yesterday.

Warren Joyce fielded an experienced side featuring five players who have been out on loan - namely Tyler Blackett, Davide Petrucci, Jesse Lingard, Federico Macheda and Will Keane. Despite falling behind, Lingard and Larnell Cole scored the decisive goals.

The Saints were rewarded for a bright opening spell with a 15th-minute opener courtesy of Omar Rowe. The 19-year-old winger punished a lapse at the back to fire past Sam Johnstone in fine fashion.
