Manchester United were left disappointed yet again this season as Ralph Rangnick’s team squandered a lead for the second time in a week to register a 1-1 Premier League draw against Southampton.

United opened the scoring as Bruno Fernandes sent Marcus Rashford racing through to cross for Jadon Sancho to net.

But Saints levelled three minutes into the second half as Che Adams sent a superb strike off the far post.

After the final whistle Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl identified a key defensive problem for United which his side exploited, with the Austrian being linked with becoming the next permanent manager at Old Trafford.

And following the draw, Paul Scholes tore his old side to shreds in a scathing rant about the performance.
