Manchester United were close to leapfrogging Chelsea into third place in the Premier League before Southampton scored a late goal to draw 2-2 at Old Trafford on Monday night.

The draw at Old Trafford means Chelsea still remain third despite our 3-0 loss at Sheffield United on Saturday and Manchester United still remain fifth.

Speaking after handing Chelsea a huge advantage, Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl told Sky Sports: “If you stop being brave, stop being on the front foot, then you have problems against one-on-one quality.

“It was a very strong start from my side. We scored and we were really aggressive.

“We gave two chances away but then just before half-time we got back to our game and then I could feel we were better. We had good possession and good balance and had good chances in the second half. The guys really deserved the point, I think.”
