Manchester United held by Southampton in 0-0 Premier League stalemate

Graeme Souness has slammed Manchester United for paying what they did for Paul Pogba

Graeme Souness has slammed Manchester United for paying what they did for Paul Pogba

Goalkeeper Sergio Romero's penalty save has helped Manchester United earn a point at Southampton in a 0-0 draw.

Saints chairman Ralph Krueger has refused to offer assurances surrounding the Frenchman's future despite him leading them to the brink of an eighth-placed finish and this partly demonstrated why.

De Gea, 26, played his last game for the club this season during United's 2-1 defeat to Spurs last Sunday and will not feature against Crystal Palace on Sunday or in the Europa League final.

For United, this was simply the latest box to be ticked in an extended warm-up to the match on which their next 12 months now hinges, and while that may reasonably be considered a joyless way to treat the latter stages of a Premier League campaign, there will be no apologies from manager Jose Mourinho if his strategy pays off. I never saw. So I think it's just a lost battle.

"The team wasn't flawless but individually they gave me good things".

"I'm here already seven years; I never saw any detail of trying to care about the English teams involved in European competitions".

Rather than restore his usual number one, David de Gea, to his starting XI against Palace, Mourinho said he would hand a league debut to 20-year-old third-choice goalkeeper Joel Pereira.

"Fellaini, on top of his experience, he says it's not a tear", Mourinho told the club's website. "They showed they want to be in that final".

The Portuguese boss has confirmed the fact that it won't affect anyone's position on the table will be enough as he looks to keep his players in the best possible shape for the Europa League final against Ajax in Stockholm on May 24. "From the moment Palace beat Hull, I think the match had to be on Saturday". Southampton's wait for a home goal moved past the six-hour mark, hardly a great statistic for under-pressure manager Claude Puel. "After the season we have time to discuss and speak about this and make a debrief".

"I try to stay focused about our last game now", he said.

Players like (Jose) Fonte who was captain of Southampton long enough in the Premier League , so we are good in that". We would like to improve the quality in certain positions but I don't want to talk about names now.
