Mason Greenwood 55th minute equaliser was all Manchester United needed to maintain their away unbeaten Premier League record at Southampton on Sunday.
The Red Devils were held to a Premier League draw at the St Mary ground as Southampton claimed their first point of the new campaign.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side started the season in blistering fashion by hammering Leeds but were poor for large periods on the south coast.
United almost scored in the opening six minutes but Harry Maguire’s effort looped on to the top of the crossbar and the follow up was cleared off the line by Mohammed Salisu.
The hosts went ahead on the half hour mark courtesy of Che Adams’ strike which deflected off Fred from the edge of the area and went in.
But United levelled in the second period as Mason Greenwood stroked home following Paul Pogba’s poked pass.
Summer signing Adam Armstrong missed a big opportunity from eight yards out, seeing his effort pushed away by David de Gea.
