FAC: Southampton 0-3 Manchester United

BY foxsports • January 4, 2009

Manchester United set up an FA Cup fourth-round tie at home to Tottenham with a comfortable 3-0 win at Championship strugglers Southampton.

But Sir Alex Ferguson's side were more than aided on Sunday by the benevolence of referee Mike Riley who sent off Saints' Matt Paterson for violent conduct after 37 minutes and then incorrectly awarded United a second-half penalty at St Mary's.
