The record books will show that ManU won 3-2, but we know better, don't we boys and girls? Gabbiadini was operating at another level and when his second (or it should have been his third) goal went in the reaction of the Saints fans was amazing. The atmosphere was electric. Did we miss Virgil van Dijk though? You bet we did, he would have dealt with that melodramatic Swede.

For the 2016/17 season Saints qualified for direct entry to the Group stages and began the campaign in September 2016, with a guaranteed six matches.
Unfortunately, this was as good as it got, with Saints missing out on progression to the knockout stages in the last match of the six.

A word of warning though, it runs to just over 1 hour 27 minutes, so be prepared to settle down for a while...
