Manchester United Rally But Only Save A Draw At Southampton

Stuart Armstrong and Cedric Soares handed the hosts a dream start, before Marcus Rashford teed up Romelu Lukaku and Ander Herrera for two United goals in six minutes.

According to the Mirror, the Red Devils are plotting a way to lure the England global and believe £70m might be enough to seal the deal.

"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".

"Overall, it's a good performance as clearly we were up against a club of huge resources and sometimes you've got to go toe-to-toe and see where it takes you".

"The second goal was a direct free-kick and the first was because we didn't press enough the ball, which is something we do wrong". They keep, keep going to complicated football.

One way round that is to buy younger players and develop them, as United did with Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney, who both joined United as teenagers and went on to become two of the most significant players in the club's history.

"What we did so well in the last 20 minutes of the first half was connecting with the attacking players by transporting the ball in the right moments".

"Doesn't matter the system we play, has to do with the characteristics of the players".

Seven minutes later, it was 2-0.

Mourinho used the example of Tottenham, who were seemingly a selling clubs around ten years ago when players like Michael Carrick, Dimitar Berbatov, Gareth Bale and Luka Modric left to win trophies with bigger clubs, to highlight the power struggle now present in the market. "With all respect, Tottenham is an incredible club, but I think everybody would say yes", Mourinho said.

"I think it was not the result that we want, but a performance that, apart of that interruptions we had in our attacking waves from midfield - apart of that - I think had positive sense". I don't recall too many occasions where we've needed Alex [McCarthy] to help us out. Such was his display that he even managed to earn a yellow late on for a tackle on Lemina in a game that has done nothing but put a question mark over his inclusion in the starting line up for United's next game against Arsenal.
