Southampton vs. Manchester United - Football Match Report

Mark Hughes gestures during Southampton's 2-2 draw with Manchester United at St Mary's on Saturday

United conceded their 22nd and 23rd goals of the season inside the first 20 minutes before levelling it up before half-time but Mourinho refused to blame the system or his makeshift defenders for another slow start.

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, gave his squad a dressing down before their game with Southampton on Saturday.

Pogba was restored to the starting line-up having been axed from the midweek win over Young Boys in the Champions League, but appeared to be well off the pace as Southampton roared into an early two-goal lead.

"Doesn't matter the system we play", Mourinho said.

Southampton were denied a late victor as Nathan Redmond brought the best of out De Gea, leaving United sitting seventh in the table and with a negative goal difference.

"We lost so many balls in midfield, we lost so many balls in our transition to the last third, it was hard to have that continuity".

"We lost so many balls in midfield", Mourinho told BT Sport. I think it is the only reason.

The result means Manchester City are 16 points ahead of their rivals at the top of the table, while United could be nine adrift of the top four if Chelsea beat Fulham on Sunday and Tottenham draw with Arsenal. It is a match where because of that good reaction in the first half we had 45 minutes to win the game. "In the second half we went back to losing too many balls in midfield".

"There were examples of players fighting to the limits - Marcus Rashford, Phil Jones and many others - showing that respect for the shirt and for the club".

And it was Rashford's brilliance that set up Herrera to make it 2-2 before the break, the 21-year-old bursting through the Saints defence and cutting the ball back for his team-mate to backheel into the net.

Pogba has reportedly told his former team-mates at Juventus he wants a return to the Old Lady, while he also said Turin feels like home, and it could be the cards if his relationship with Mourinho doesn't improve.
