Southampton ended Manchester United's 10-match unbeaten run on Sunday with a 1-0 victory that dislodged Louis van Gaal's side from third place in the Premier League.

Dusan Tadic clinched Southampton's first win at Old Trafford in 27 years in the 69th minute to strengthen the south-coast team's chances of qualifying for the Champions League for the first time.

Five minutes after coming off the bench, Tadic set up Graziano Pelle for a shot that hit the post. Tadic was alert to send the rebound into the net with the game's only shot on target.

The Serbia midfielder did earn a booking for his celebration, taking off his shirt and flexing his muscles in front of the cameras.

Southampton is now two points ahead of fourth-place United.
