Went from best effort of the season to 'Oh no not again' in 5 mins. Hojbjerg gave the point away with a pathetic attempt at a tackle.

Great effort by ALL the team, including Austin!
We deserved at least a draw and a more competent referee would have given us two penalties. It was so disappointing to lose but we played with spirit and commitment and as a supporter that is what I want to see.
Valery is becoming one helluva player and with more experience will be a target for the top clubs.
A rare game that I enjoyed even with a defeat.

Such a shame we were so close but typically Utd find a way to win and we find a way to lose. But a valiant effort none the less,a good shift put in by all just one lapse by PEH and who had a fantastic game up till then cost us.This is the effort we need for the rest of the games.Also Valery scored what could be goal of the season for us shame it did not get the result we deserved.

What a super game to watch, totally enthralling. What might have been eh? Gives hope for next Saturday and with the crowd behind the team and singing OUR song we could just give Spurs a tonking.

Saints denied 2 penalties + Lukaku scores from an offside position = impossible to get anything at that miserable home referee stadium.

Well played Saints. Very encouraging performance. Very satisfied with JWP finallly reaching 5 league goals in a season. He is soon - finally - the finished article.

Darn it! Cracking game to watch though.

We hung in there at the start, came good, came back and just couldn't hang on. If we keep playing like that tho we'll beat the drop.

Wonder if Ryu Bertrand is still feeling his Street Fighter 2 tackle on Lukaku.lol.

p.s.
Lukaku´s winning goal; What happened and how could it have been avoided?
He got the ball just inside the box, from a low, short, unblocked pass, with his back against center of goal. Yoshida was the closest marker but couldn´t find time to put in a tackle, and Lukaku turned around with the ball in his possession and put it inside the corner with a low shot, which Gunn - fully streched - couldn´t reach.
Bad defending? Bad goalkeeping? Just a matter of classy finishing?

I guess it was a combination of:

- classy striker ability,
- insufficient defending from Yoshida, AND
- lack of protection from midfield (Højbjerg should have tried harder to block the pass to Lukaku).

It´s all about awareness, timing and great fitness, and we can only learn from it and move on.
Under Hasenhüttl we will be better prepared in all departments next season.
COYS.
Have a nice sunday.

It is a shame that the late winner will have many talking of 'typical' Saints but I think we were unlucky not to get at least a point. Gunn has won his place as first choice and JWP has improved. This wasn't a 3-2 defeat where rubbish defending handed the opposition all the goals (at Arsenal last year and Fulham this) so I am going to take the positives - even though they don't show up in the league table of course. Cardiff seem to be imploding nicely as well...

The only negative for me was the fact that forwards are not scoring. It is great that others are 'chipping in' but it would be nice for those paid to score goals to actually do so on a more regular basis

It is always difficult to lose when playing that lot and playing so well. We do need points but at least our goal difference continues to look better than Burnley and Cardiff. We are a much better side than this time last year so I hope we can get the results to survive and put pressure on the teams around us. Spurs next...

Incredible performance, proud to be a saint. Just wish the outcome wasn't so predictable. Still in the toilet if not in the bowl. It's the hope. Course.

Could Gunn have stopped the Pereira shot? It appears that although he dived towards the ball he did not try to reach it with outstretched arms. I don't want to criticise him because he saved so many other shots but it's been bugging me since watching replays.

SaintBrock added 22:04 - Mar 3

I don't think so aceofthebase, maybe his starting position was wrong because he like most others thought the ball was going to be moved out to the left so he had no chance to reach the ball when it was unleashed. Not on the same scale as the errors of De Gea who let the first goal through his hands and had all the time in the world to position himself for WP's free kick and still couldn't reach it.

The ratings above surely confirm that we had excellent performances all round.
A crying shame about the result, but then again we were playing United - weren't we Ref?
