Southampton 1-2 Manchester United – Match Highlights

Manchester United came from behind to avoid an embarrassing FA Cup fourth round exit, beating a spirited Southampton side 2-1 at St Mary’s.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s men looked destined to go out to League One opposition for the second straight year when Richard Chaplow gave Southampton the lead just before half-time.

But a much-improved second half performance saw goals from Michael Owen and Javier Hernandez take United into the last 16.

United lost to third-tier Leeds United in last season’s third round, when Jermaine Beckford scored the only goal at Old Trafford, and a risky team selection by Ferguson meant they sailed close to the wind on the South coast.

United made eight changes from the team that won 3-2 at Blackpool on Tuesday.
