Manchester United produced a dull and toothless display away to Southampton on Wednesday night, registering their 15th draw of the league season, their most ever in a Premier League campaign.
Sergio Romero, in for David De Gea, was the star of the show for United, and was called into action within the first five minutes after Eric Bailly was adjudged to have handled the ball inside the box.
However, Romero produced a fine save to thwart Manolo Gabbiadini’s penalty kick.
Bailly himself then forced Saints ‘keeper Fraser Forster into a decent save.
However, the visitors, no doubt with one eye on next week’s Europa League final, were flaccid up front for the majority of the game
In the second-half, Romero was kept busy as the hosts pushed for a goal.
Saints boss Claude Puel also found himself on the wrong end of a header from Bailly – although to be fair, the French coach styled it out pretty well!
However, late on, Anthony Martial saw his fine long-range effort come back off the post.

Worryingly for Jose Mourinho, ahead of next week’s clash with Ajax, Marouane Fellaini was forced off late on with what looked like a serious injury.
The game would end in stalemate (the Devils and the Saints cancelling each other out, if you will) with United once again producing a limp display under Mourinho.
As for Puel and Southampton, they’ll be disappointed not to have made more of their chances.
