Properly good game of football that was!

That equaliser had been coming.

Saints are showing, with a couple of good signings, that we could have a really exciting season next time out.  This side is no pushover any more and we play with heart, passion and more than a little skill.

So pleased for Obafemi - he has more about him (from a goalscoring perspective) than Adams.  Not convinced Adams is Prem quality.

Great result considering the form Utd have been in.

We are a joy to watch. We are so much better now. We can play anyone.

We weren’t at our best but all credit to the lads to steady the ship and frustrate Utd. Then to go on and nab a stoppage time equalizer is fantastic.

Great team spirit and tenacity to not panic when Utd were all over us.

Other than the 10 minutes after their first goal we were the better team, albeit with them looking more dangerous on the break - but with a front three like that who is surprised.

Get in. Was frustrated that we hadn’t got the ball into the box once they went down to 10. Lovely to get a set piece goal finally.

Felt we deserved something though Fernandes/Rashford/martial combo were very dangerous. United need work in midfield imo.

great spirit from the team again today, would have been easy to wilt at 2-1.

Thoroughly deserved the point. 
As soon as Neville awarded man of the match to Martial “for the winning goal” I just knew we would get the equaliser. 
we were by far more the creative.

Decent game of football. Momentum swung from one team to the other throughout. Fair result really. A couple more wins are possible this season. Neville said we could do with a bit more quality in the final third and that was all that we were missing tonight for the win.

Well deserved despite Nevilles seemingly hotline to the VAR studio constantly asking for red cards !! Loved Ralph’s worshipping the camera there as left pitch.........a little homage to us Saints fans😇😇

We don't do injury time goals.

We do now.

 

Lost our way a little but kept going and got something out of the game.

A few choice buys and we could be fun to watch next season.

We'll done lads.

So happy with how we have played in the last two games. Two draws that could have been wins. Really looking forward to what we can do with Ralph getting a couple of players for next season. Untied have been the most dangerous team since the restart and looking very good for next season but really struggled to deal with us at times.

are we genuinely fitter than other teams long term or is the way lock down fitness has been carried out that giving us a current edge we'll lose. For sure we have some good fitness and are playing with confidence and good purpose without the ball but is it a bit of a false dawn once there's a pre-season and everyone else cares as much? (wow thats a miserable post after a great result and run haha)

After shipping injury time goals to United for so many years, its great to get one back.  We have a very special team in the making.

We are better without Hojbjerg. Great game and stats show we had more of the ball, more shots etc. Deserved the win :)

Always proud to be a Saint, but especially so since lockdown. Ole actually said before the match that we are the fittest team in the prem and when you are the fittest team you score injury time goals.......all 10 minutes of injury time!!!! Well done lads. Difficult to pick a MoM.

You'd rather see his bottom half naked. Duly noted.

Top 6 side since the international break in November. Nice, but I think we'll regret dropping 2 points at Everton in our quest for a top half finish.

Shearer actually bigging  us up on DAZN. He usually tries to airbrush us out of his past.

Paul Scholes saying Saints got a deserved draw for all our hard work and effort.

Away to MU when they are in a purple patch....enjoying the match with no pressure then getting a Fergie time goal was just priceless.

Wouldn't quite go that far, although I do have some man love for RH at the moment. Just maybe some looser fitting tracky bums.

Who knows, maybe we'll do a Leicester and carry this form to a title win next season :lol:

Deserved something from the game so it's great that we got a point in the end. We've been so good to watch (Arsenal aside) since lockdown. Long may it continue.

Hopefully those firm sexy cheeks are the only “bottom half” we’ll see associated with Saints in the next few years.

Did I just type that out loud?

Whey hey, just back from the pub and my first post-lockdown pints. Must have washed my hands about 7 times, very quiet (apart from me!) and a table to myself..

Aside from the decent result I thought we played some excellent football - moving the ball around, people making themselves available (and that's the sign of a good team..), first time and accurate passes. We never gave up and just suffered a bit from their forward pace. Will definitely have to renew my season ticket!

Fun match to watch... These ManU forward are frightening but we gave as good as we got and some more. The team is so well balanced, got grit and a little panache. RH working miracles.

Love it... COYS

Great effort and deserved the goal. Not the best we’ve played quality-wise after the first 20 but kept going and going. Voted for Bertrand Motm.

hope KWP ok after that nasty clash of heads. Hope the Utd lad Williams OK, although probably out of one game with concussion.

It's ok we all share Angel's man love for RH right now.

We had more possession than United, played most of the game in their half, had more corners, more shots at goal and more shots on target and if not for a world class save from De Gea, we'd have got the win we deserved.  To be fair, if not for that fantastic interception by Bertrand, United could also have had another goal.

Still very pleased that we've kept the unbeaten run going, especially after playing both the Manchester teams.

Solskjaer is being honest in his post match interview, saying that United didn't deserve to win and admitting, that the result is because Southampton are a good side.

Just heard Solskjaer's interview. Refreshing and nice to see some humility.
