Half time: Southampton 1-1 Manchester United

Ronald Koeman will be rueing his side's wastefulness and a series of refereeing errors as Southampton go in level at half time against Manchester United. Graziano Pelle had Saints ahead and they should have had a penalty when Rojo took down Ward-Prowse.

Daley Blind's close range shot now deflected behind. Southampton have lost a grip on this game which they were dominating.

16:24

Half a chance for United, their first in the opening half, as Mata swings a cross in from the left and Memphis has the run on Yoshida but he heads high over Stekelenburg's bar.

16:17

15:49

Southampton outplayed Manchester United in both of their league games last term, beating Louis van Gaal's team at Old Trafford having lost at St Mary's. Dusan Tadic was the match-winner earlier in the year. United are a far more daunting prospect these days however and they bring with them a wealth of attacking options.
