Decent week for them...
“It’s good for everybody. The last clean sheet was against West Brom I think so it’s important to try to be more solid and it gives confidence to everyone.
Southampton went eleven games without a clean sheet until today. We were embarrassing in attack. Embarrassing. #mufc— United Xtra (@utdxtra) December 30, 2017
“Right now we have to be positive and use this performance for the future, because we have another big game coming up on Tuesday (against Crystal Palace).”
