Manchester United v Southampton — Preview

Manchester United v Southampton — Preview

The question was harmless enough but the response was revealing.

Saints also survived a penalty appeal for handball against Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, as well as the one against Yoshida, while McCarthy saved from Mata and Nemanja Matic. With captain and Paul and Paul and captain? The Saints have won two of their last three games at United's home ground.

"It's related to the game", came the reply. "What do you mean the armband?"

Pogba did tap the ball into the net from close range after a goalmouth scramble, but the flag was raised for offside.

"That is not United", former United midfielder Gordon Hill tweeted after the match. "Any more questions? Merry Christmas, eh". He is growing increasingly frustrated as Manchester City sweep all before them.

Romelu Lukaku was stretchered off after the Manchester United striker clashed heads with Southampton's Wesley Hoedt in the teams' Premier League clash on Saturday.

The quality of United's defending has become an increasing problem for Mourinho of late.

Manchester United's manager refuses to evolve from a not-so-distant past when he was both adored and feared in equal measure.

Still a long way to go, they could get back into the title fight with a string of victories, but that's only if Manchester City slips up.

"Now the Virgil deal is done, my best wishes for him, but it has to be a positive impact to reinvest, a good decision for the future". Lukaku tried being the creator against Leicester City but his teammates failed to oblige the wonderful balls he sent their way.

At the other end Ward-Prowse forced De Gea to save from a free-kick and an unmarked Hoedt headed wide following a corner.

Play was delayed for six-and-a-half minutes following a header injury sustained by Lukaku after a clash of heads.

Having allayed fears that Lukaku was seriously injured, Mourinho explained that the Belgian is likely to be out for at least two games.

Anthony Martial's return will be a huge boost for Mourinho, who should start him straight away this weekend.

"Zlatan is out for a month".
