Ronald Koeman hails Southampton win over Manchester United

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman praises his side's display after they secured a 1-0 victory away at Manchester United.

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman has hailed the spirit of his side after they struck late to secure a 1-0 victory away at Manchester United.

A debut goal from Charlie Austin three minutes from time was enough to secure the Saints a second successive win at Old Trafford after they also shocked Louis van Gaal's men 12 months ago.

The 52-year-old told BBC Sport: "We played very good. Our organisation was good, we were very compact, we had good pressing.

"We stayed in the game, controlled the game and you saw more nerves in the Man Utd team and finally we score from a corner kick. We showed spirit today, it was an amazing result for the second time here."

Southampton now sit in eighth place in the Premier League table, just four points adrift of United who are fifth.
