Manchester United Rally But Only Save A Draw At Southampton

Manchester United Rally But Only Save A Draw At Southampton

Whilst United can't move off a goal difference of -1 (-1!), their fans have had to watch rivals Manchester City once again score an abundance of goals, at 43, nearly double the tally United have wracked up, and top the EPL table.

Jose Mourinho has said he is unsure on the state of his squad for this weeks huge game with Arsenal.

Jose Mourinho branded Paul Pogba "a virus" in front of his Manchester United teammates following Saturday's draw against Southampton.

Pogba starting the game after being dropped against Young Boys in the Champions League midweek, however, he didn't look up to it.

The draw leaves the Manchester side seventh in the league, six points off the top four and a massive 16 points behind their city rivals, despite Mourinho saying his team could top-four by the end of the year.

United were 2-0 down within 20 minutes at St Mary's, but Rashford sparked the team into another comeback, setting up Romelu Lukaku and Ander Herrera to make the scores level by half-time.

Chelsea fans vent frustration at usual scapegoat during first-half against Fulham
Premier League - Follow the Football match between Chelsea and Fulham live with Eurosport. What is the hype surrounding Hudson-Odoi? "I'm very happy with this".

"Can we go to Tottenham and buy their best players?"

"We lost so many balls in midfield", Mourinho told BT Sport. Which I think, if we don't have as much possession in periods we still need an out ball so we will have that with those two.

"We don't have many mad dogs, the ones who bite all the ball all the team and press all the time, we don't have many with that spirit", he said. It means either Scott McTominay or Nemanja Matic will partner Phil Jones in the middle of defence this evening.

United were struggling to string passes together and they faced the prospect of a third consecutive league game without a win, but Lukaku gave them hope with his first goal for the club in 981 minutes in all competitions. Great examples of players fighting until the limits.

United were the favourites, of course, although the Saints will certainly have come away from the game wondering what might have been after blowing a 2-0 lead.

"It was not the result but the performance had positive things".
