Manchester United were held to a stalemate at Southampton on Sunday as the hosts gained their first Premier League points against the Red Devils.

Mason Greenwood rescued Man Utd from loss with a second-half screamer to deny the hosts all three points.

United had a glorious start last week, with Bruno Fernandes scoring a hattrick against Leeds.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side almost scored in the opening six minutes but Harry Maguire’s effort looped on to the top of the crossbar and the follow up was cleared off the line by Mohammed Salisu.

Deal of the day

The hosts went ahead on the half hour mark courtesy of Che Adams’ strike which deflected off Fred from the edge of the area and went in.

But United levelled in the second period as Mason Greenwood stroked home following Paul Pogba’s poked pass.

Summer signing Adam Armstrong missed a big opportunity from eight yards out, seeing his effort pushed away by David de Gea.
