Manchester United fought back from two goals down to secure a point but their Premier League struggles continued with a 2-2 draw at Southampton.
All the goals came in the first half at St. Mary’s and it was Southampton who raced into an early two-goal lead thanks to Stuart Armstrong’s third goal in two games (13) and a stunning free-kick from Cedric Soares (20).
United put a lacklustre opening behind them with two goals in six minutes as Romelu Lukaku (33) and Ander Herrera (39) brought Jose Mourinho’s side level, but they could not find a winner in what was a poor second-half.
Southampton held on for what could prove to be a valuable point to move up to 18th in the league and ease the pressure on manager Mark Hughes, while a point takes United, who are now three league games without a win, up to seventh.
