A 1-1 draw was not what Manchester United wanted away at Southampton.

That’s two consecutive years we have dropped points at St Mary’s.

This one was frustrating, with Jannik Vestergaard scoring a soft equaliser after Dan James had given us the lead.

It is tough to pick out the biggest underperformers on a drab weekend-ruining day, but there were two who just about stood out.

Victor Lindelöf

What is happening to the ice man? Lindelöf was beaten by Vestergaard in the air for Southampton’s goal and looked nervous.

After losing a header against Ayew a week earlier which cost United, this was not good to see once again.

On the first day of the season Lindelöf was a class act and we had hopes of a superb partnership between him and Maguire.


Any more performances like this and there will be calls for Axel Tuanzebe to step up and take his place.

Marcus Rashford

Without the injured Anthony Martial, the pressure was on Rashford to really step up.

Unfortunately he did not deliver against Southampton.

His decision making was poor, and his shots at goal were too predictable.

Rashford had six attempts, only two on target, which barely troubled the goalkeeper.

After scoring twice in the opening game, Rashford has not found the net in three consecutive matches and this is beginning to become a bit of a concern.

One alternative is to start Mason Greenwood up front in his place rather than using the youngster in a cameo role on the wing.
