Manchester United also missed its chance to make it to the top four for the first time since September last year.

Substitute Michael Obafemi scored a goal in the final moments to end United's hopes of overtaking Leicester City by scoring three points.

 Manchester United has the same number of points as Leicester in fourth place, but United remain in fifth place in goal difference.

The match will be played between Leicester and United on the last day of the season.

Stuart Armstrong from Southampton scored in the 12th minute but Marcus Rashford scored a goal for United in the 20th minute.

Three minutes later, Anthony Marshall gave United the lead.
