Alt (Article):

D’imir Man United in aghaidh Southampton. Bhí tús uafásach ag Southampton mar fuair imreoir amháin cárta dearg tar éis naoi soicind is seachtó!

Chuaigh cúrsaí in olcas ar fad ina dhiaidh sin. Man United 4 – Southampton 0 – sin an scór a bhí ann ag leath-am.

Man United 9 – Southampton 0 – sin an scór a bhí ann ag deireadh an chluiche.

Anois tá Man United sa dara háit. Tá Man City sa chéad áit. Beidh an rás an-suimiúil i mbliana!
