Wednesday's EPL: Southampton 0-0 Man United - Goalkeeper Sergio Romero Stops Saints

Sergio Romero saved a penalty as Man United held Southampton at St. Mary’s on Wednesday night.
Southampton and Manchester United played out a goalless draw at St Mary's as both sides made multiple changes in a dull end-of-season encounter.

Saints should have gone ahead within five minutes when Eric Bailly was adjudged to have handled in the area, but United goalkeeper Sergio Romero saved Manolo Gabbiadini's penalty.

Bailly's sharp shot then forced Fraser Forster into a solid save, as the United defender created his side's best chance of the first half.

Southampton forced Romero to make a handful of outstanding saves after the break but were unable to get past the United keeper before Anthony Martial hit the post for the visitors.

Sixth-place United picked up its 66th point of the season as they lost Marouane Fellaini to a leg injury in the second half, another obstacle to overcome ahead of next week’s UEFA Europa League final against Ajax in Sweden.

Southampton sits eighth with 46 points, and finishes the season at home Sunday to Stoke City.
