Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku celebrates scoring his side's third goal of the game, during the English Premier League soccer match between Manchester United and Southampton at Old Trafford, in Manchester, England, Saturday, March 2, 2019.

Collecting the ball in an innocuous area, marauding full-back Valery wound back and unleashed an outrageous 25-yard strike that flew into the top right-hand corner past David De Gea.

James Ward-Prowse thought he had earned the Saints a valuable point when he scored a free-kick 15 minutes from time, but the visitors suffered a late setback.

Since becoming United's second most expensive player ever in 2017, things have not always gone smoothly for Lukaku.

Solskjaer took over from Jose Mourinho in December and has overseen a remarkable turn of events for United, winning nine of their 11 games to revive hope for a top four finish.

There have been news that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is planning to make Pogba the next captain as Antonio Valencia is on the verge of leaving the Old Trafford club.

"'Do I want to spend any more time in my coaching career having already been at that club and failed to win a trophy?' And remember, he's failed to win any trophies in his coaching career thus far".

There was no need to take that throw-in so quickly and he just chucked it at Andreas who had 2 Southampton players on him.

That's how it is. "The boys showed how much they enjoy the game and the situation", a delighted Klopp told the BBC . Against Watford though they were excellent and created chances from the outset, tearing the opposition apart.

"We spoke about at half-time, just get some more urgency get the ball in the box, play more forward and the Stretford End will suck the ball in for you".

"We maybe could have had two penalties and at 2-0 up it would be much more hard for Man United", Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuettl said.

"He has got the goalscorer's quality".

Solskjaer could even enjoy the luxury of a 95th-minute penalty miss when Paul Pogba's effort was well saved by Angus Gunn following Stuart Armstrong's trip on Marcus Rashford. "We have done it so many times before".

He is still yet to taste defeat in league action, with his only loss coming against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

"In the current squad, because of the way they try to organise, they communicate with team-mates, I think we only have two who are quite good at that, ' he told Sport Witness".

"We came back and then one fantastic player decided this game with his unbelievable power and that's the end".
