Brandon Williams expelled shortly after emerging as a sub after a horrifying head injury … pushing Manchester United to 10 when Southampton grabbed the injury time equalizer
Brandon Williams suffered a terrible cut to the head that left Manchester United up to ten men before conceding last minute against Southampton.
The young defender was on the field for Luke Shaw in the 75th minute, but had to leave after 89 minutes after a head clash with Saints defender Kyle Walker-Peters.
In his absence, the hosts, who had gone through Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial before Stuart Armstrong cut the deficit in half, saw Michael Obafemi register a 96-minute leveler to quell their hopes in the Champions League.
