94' Cedric lifts a teasing ball in that Long cushions for Bertrand. His whack is straight at Bailly, and an agricultural hoof from Herrera allows Zlatan to chase the ball, and win a brilliant foul off Romeu. All these years in the business has taught the man more than his fair share of tricks.
Oh Wow. It was all Zlatan. After clearing that corner, he ran forward to receive a Pogba pass before holding the ball and moving it to Rashford. The young man does well to hold up play and waits for Herrera to overlap. The Basque curls a lovely little ball and Zlatan peels off Stephens and hammers a header home. Unsaveable. Lovely goal, that.
85' The corner comes to nothing, Bertrand powers forward and the ball misses Shane Long by the proverbial whisker. Ward-Prowse does well to win a corner - and Stephens looping header is cleared in front of the goal by Zlatan.
84' Long almost runs onto a silly Herrera back-pass, but De Gea smacks it clear. Pogba floats it ahead to Zlatan.. who holds the ball up and releases Rashford. With no one in the box, the Englishman smacks a shot off Forster for a corner.
78' The ball is moved on to Pogba who does brilliantly to shrug off the attentions of three Saints men and switches the ball to Valencia. The Ecuadorian bombards forward, and lifts one to Zlatan - who is miles offside.
72' Ward-Prowse is slipped in again behind Rojo - the Argentine is having a nightmare - but the winger's cutback is behind Gabbiadini and Smalling clears. Pogba races forward and wins a freekick in Zlatan territory
71' Pogba wins a free kick in a dangerous position.. Herrera places it to Carrick but the veteran Englishman's shot is weak. Saints clear - a correction to my earlier comment, it was Yoshida's desperately brilliant tackle that kept Lingard out.
65' Pogba and Martial try to make something happen, but they get closed down with rabid intensity. Pogba does brilliantly well to nick the ball off Davis... but in the end Southampton relieves the pressure with a throw-in
64' OH MY! OH MY! Romeu whacks the face of the post from another brilliant Ward-Prowse corner. UFF! De Gea was stranded there!! I cannot remember the last time United were outplayed so comprehensively this season... even in that 4-0 hammering at Stamford Bridge.
60' Herrera gets whacked in the face by Romeu's flailing elbow - and is even more infuriated when Southampton's hard man doesn't pick up his second yellow. Carrick then proceeds to smack the ball into the hands of Forster. Even Carrick!
58' OW OW Zlatan!! Forster is harried into clearance and passes it straight to Martial. The Frenchman lays it off to Zlatan, but the Swede's effort is saved. The ball breaks to Valencia who swings a teasing cross in.... only for Martial and Pogba to get in each other's way and neither take a swipe at it!
55' This is so static from United, I could swear Van Gaal is sitting on the bench and taking down notes. If looks could kill, there would be 9 dead United midfielders on that pristine Wembley pitch. The two remaining Spaniards being the sole survivors.
53' Mourinho is going to spontaneously combust any moment. His team try to calm things down by passing the ball harmlessly around the middle of the park. Martial decides to up the tempo, but he can't keep the ball under his spell and Stephens hammers it clear.
50' Southampton are all over United here. Oh my lord, what are United doing? Redmond runs at Herrera before slipping in Gabbiadini. The Italian's shot is blocked by Rojo. It's clipped back in and Bailly has to head it away under extreme pressure.
