Foul-mouthed rant piles the pressure on Jose Mourinho

It leaves both with better bargaining power when it comes to wages and Neville feels players are able to do that with increasing frequency due largely to the weakened bargaining position of the club. Although, Mourinho's freaky team selection, fielding five central midfielders and no wingers, gave Pogba few options when he was on the ball.

Immediately after the game, Mourinho cited United's lack of "mad dogs" as the reason for their second successive draw in the Premier League, but thought one player brought a particular bite to their performance. "And you kill the mentality of the good honest people around you", the 55-year-old is believed to have told the former Juventus player.

Pogba was restored to the starting line-up having been axed from the midweek win over Young Boys in the Champions League, but appeared to be well off the pace as Southampton roared into an early two-goal lead.

United battled back from 2-0 down to earn a draw thanks to goals from Romelu Lukaku and Ander Herrera.

United failed to capitalise on a missed kick from Alex McCarthy three minutes in, and they were punished when Stuart Armstrong blasted across David de Gea's goal and into the net with Saints' first effort on target.

"We lost so many balls in midfield, so many balls in our transition to the last third that it was hard to have that continuity", Mourinho told BT Sport.

Here is a sample of the post-match reaction after United slipped 16 points behind Manchester City in the table. "It was nothing to do with the system and Matic and McTominay did a very positive job for two midfield players".

United were struggling to string passes together and they faced the prospect of a third consecutive league game without a win, but Lukaku gave them hope with his first goal for the club in 981 minutes in all competitions. "In the second half we went back to losing too many balls in midfield".

"But good spirit, good fight to come back from 2-0 to 2-2".
