Jose Mourinho suggested after a third Premier League match without victory that his team had not had enough “mad dogs” on the field in their 2-2 draw with Southampton.
To a neutral, it seemed that it was not rabid canines that were missing but intensity and desire at key times in the stalemate with a side who have yet to win a home match this season.
Saints had only netted four times at St Mary’s, once from the penalty spot.
But they had two more goals after only 19 minutes against a United side who seemed to be going through the motions.
At least until Marcus Rashford atoned for the free kick that led to Southampton’s second goal with a pair of assists to drag United back into a game that could have slipped away from them entirely.
That should have been their cue to go on and win on a ground where they have usually done well.
But they failed to resume the second half in control of the match and David De Gea was the busier of the two goalkeepers.
