Manchester United fans, brace yourselves for a very long season ahead. The team and anything associated with it are disappointing so far.

Manchester United slumped to another disappointing result at St Mary's in which they failed to beat 10-man Southampton and ended the match with just a point, making it five points from four games. United have now failed to secure three points for the third game in a row.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made three changes from the team which failed to beat Crystal Palace last weekend with Young and Pereira coming in for the injured Shaw and Martial as well as Juan Mata making his first start of the season in place for Lingard who began the game on the bench.

Manchester United took the lead early on in the match thanks to a brilliant strike from Daniel James. But, as per usual, we were beaten just after the break when Southampton levelled the scores through defender Jannik Vestergaard after another Lindelof mistake.

Southampton was reduced to ten men midway through the second-half when Kevin Danso saw red, but Manchester United were unable to take advantage of the extra man advantage.
Ole Gunner made his signature Mason Greenwood 80th minute sub who was bright when brought on and almost won the game if not for Angus Gunn.

United ended the game trying to get winning goal but their quality in the final third has dwindled as the season continued. A number 10 was desperately needed this summer and it looks like January will be too late.

The gaffer keeps defending his players in the press conferences, which is good for their confidence but it hurts to live in denial. An international break for ten days and then Leicester comes to Old Trafford, who knows how that game will go...
