Manchester United tonight played the 62nd game of their season, drawing goalless away to Southampton; a game in which the only winners were those who didn't bother watching it. It was a dreadful game in which United managed just one shot on target, and they relied on Sergio Romero to earn them a point: he was the man of a dreadful match, saving Gabbiadini's early penalty.
United rotated quite a bit, with Alex Tuanzebe continuing in the first team, with Romero, Darmian, Fellaini and Mkhitaryan come in for De Gea, Blind, Carrick and Lingard. The draw means United haven't won any of their last five league games.
Jose Mourinho gave a remarkable morose interview after the game, in which he assured that this Sunday's game against Crystal Palace will be "one for the kids", and also pondered whether "Big Sam would be a friend" and not overly exert his side against United's reserves.
Mourinho admitted after Sunday's loss at Spurs that his team did not want to play Premier League games with the Europa League final against Ajax next Wednesday, but after tonight's game, Graeme Souness spoke on Sky Sports about the negative effect his complaints about fatigue were having on his players.
Namely, it is offering them an excuse.
