Manchester United’s inauspicious start to the season continued on Saturday lunchtime after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Southampton at St Mary’s.
Summer signing Daniel James broke the deadlock in the 10th minute with a thumping effort - his third goal since joining the Red Devils from Swansea City - but Jannik Vestergaard’s equaliser just before the hour mark was enough to earn the hosts a point.
United were playing against 10 men for the final 20 minutes after Kevin Danso picked up his second yellow card of the afternoon but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side failed to capitalise on their man advantage.
They pushed hard in search of a winner during the final minutes but, by then, it was too little too late.
United have now picked up just five points from their opening four Premier League fixtures.

They started the season in stunning fashion, thrashing Chelsea 4-0 at Old Trafford, but since then they’ve drawn 1-1 away at Wolves, lost 2-1 at home to Crystal Palace and failed to beat Southampton.
United fans are frustrated and angry, believing more should have been done on revamping the squad over the summer.
They’re concerned about how the rest of the season will pan out, with a top-four finish already looking like it might be difficult to achieve.
For one poor lifelong supporter, it’s all got a little too much already.
Micky was interviewed after the match by PeakyPundit - a Man Utd fan-run YouTube channel - and he struggled to hold back the tears after watching his beloved club fail to win again.
Asked who his Man of the Match was, Micky said: “I think that right-back’s something different…”
At this point he began to get a little choked up, before continuing: “He wins that ball so much. Brilliant…”
The presenter then asked Micky what’s upsetting him. He responds: “Because we’ve dropped two points again today.”
He then admitted that it hurts him before the presenter said: “This is how much it means to my boy Micky, a lifelong Red, I can see it means a lot to you.
"It is in your life and in your blood, I’m sure United will get back there.”
This is the effect United are having on their fans right now.
Fortunately for them there’s a two-week international break now.
After that, on September 14, it’s a difficult looking home match against Leicester City for the Old Trafford faithful to dread thinking about.News Now - Sport News
