Southampton 1-1 Manchester United – Premier League – 11th May 2014
With Tottenham winning in north London, the result of Manchester United’s final day clash with Southampton was in consequential. Southampton were the better side for long periods of the game and deservedly took the lead through Rickie Lambert. The Saints created a number of good chances but ultimately the Red Devils would claim a share of the points courtesy of a fine Juan Mata free-kick.
Southampton finish the season in eighth spot, with United in seventh and thus missing out on Europe for the first time in 25 years.
