Manchester United have had a notable season already - although rarely for reasons they'd want.

United now lie 16 points off Manchester City after just 14 games and it certainly looks like they'll face a real fight to even finish in the top four this year.

There have been apparent disagreements between Jose Mourinho and a good few of his players already - some justified, some not - while recent signings have struggled to make an impact.

Alexis Sanchez is looking less and less likely to make it at Old Trafford, while summer singing Fred is struggling just to get in the side.

Saturday's game with Southampton certainly looked like a relatively simple way to get positive momentum going but it proved to be anything but.

Mourinho's side were 2-0 down at St. Mary's within 20 minutes, although they did rescue the situation to go into halftime at 2-2.

United were unable to go one better and get the win, however, and they'd drop two valuable points against Southampton.

There were several notable takes from the game - Marcus Rashford's great performance, Paul Pogba's not-so-great performance - but when it came to picking a headline, Spanish outlet AS went with something a little more fun.

Paul Pogba came under scrutiny for his performance against Southampton.

For everyone other than United fans, anyway.

'Southampton fail to beat Manchester United'

Now it's safe to say they were mocking United just a little bit with that one.

United were the favourites, of course, although the Saints will certainly have come away from the game wondering what might have been after blowing a 2-0 lead.

Needless to say, fans enjoyed AS's headline, as you can see below:

United's next attempt to get back on track will be against an old rival in midweek: Arsenal.

The Gunners will either be in very high or very low spirits after the North London derby on Friday - although you've got to say, they may fancy their chances against this United side
