Bednarek gave Southampton the lead in the 23rd minute when he headed home a James Ward-Prowse before the assist provider turned into a goal scorer ten minutes later.

Goalkeeper De Gea picked up an injury and was replaced by Dean Henderson and so was Cavani brought in who linked up with Bruno Fernandes who netted the opener for the Red Devils in the 59th minute.

The former PSG man turned a deflected ball into the net thanks to a header in the 74th minute and completing a three goal rout with a perfectly placed header deep in the extra time.
