Manchester United played out a 1-1 draw with Southampton at the St Mary’s Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

United had to come from a goal down to get a point against the Saints, and Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was quite disappointed with the way the game turned out.

There was a foul on Bruno Fernandes in the build-up to Southampton’s goal, but Solskjaer was more displeased with the manner in which the ball came off Fred, as he insisted that the Brazilian should have cleared the ball.

When asked about United’s call for a foul on Fernandes in the build-up to Southampton’s goal, Solskjaer replied: “It seems like football has gone from one extreme to the other – that’s a foul, definitely, 100 per cent.

“But it happens in football that you don’t get every decision. We should’ve reacted better, of course.

“It might be a little bit lucky it deflected off Fred but he shouldn’t have dangled his leg, he should’ve blocked that shot. So we need better reactions when we don’t get decisions.

“I think it’s still early on in the season, fitness issues, we’re not 100 per cent fit.

“Then there’s a couple of tactical issues to correct, but most of it was tiredness and sloppiness.”
