  • FT Thoughts: United responded well after being reduced to 10 men, but one part, was just a bit harsh from Anthony Taylor who has once again triggered questions about VAR and the inconsistencies in the league this season. #MUNSOU
  • Erik ten Hag will no doubt be worried about Casemiro's absence with Alejandro Garnacho's fitness also in doubt. #MUNSOU
  • The Saints needed this draw for their confidence but the result changes nothing in their position on the summit. #MUNSOU
  •  Casemiro will miss United's next 4 fixtures. But while that is a huge blow to the team, it also affords chances for McTominay and Fred to step up in his absence, alongside January arrival Marcel Sabitzer. #MUNSOU
  • De Gea: “It should be a game to win today but the game changed when we lost a man in the team.” #MUNSOU
  • De Gea: “We tried our best to score but it was difficult. They had some chances but in the end, we showed good team spirit. We have to take the point and keep going.”
