Prowsey played his usual game. He is reliable.

Great 1st 10, very poor rest of 1st half, great battling, tenacious 2nd half.
Not a lot more to say other Højbjerg still looks off the pace & JWP has still not turned up this season.......

He's like a baby undroppable.

Where were our two main strikers? Is Ings supposed to link up play between the midfield and the front - he certainly doesn't. Adams was never in the game - he doesn't work hard enough for me. JWP is consistently responsible for slowing up our forward movement or, indeed, stopping it altogether. Hail Oriol Romeu and Angus Gunn, both superb. And a word, too for a reinvigorated Boufal (why was he taken off instead of JWP?) and a clap on the back for Vestergaard who made several key interceptions. The usual imbalanced performance from referee Mike Dean but, I have to agree that Danso had to walk. Kevin is likely to spend a lot of this season suspended unless his brain clicks into gear. A brilliant result all in al however, United were beatable today and with eleven men we might have succeeded.

PEH was so bad today he made Pogba look like a world beater. But for some reason he appears above critasism, if JWP played like that people would explode with rage. Congratulations to Vestagaard, he deserved that goal for an all round performance.

Overall, a good team performance. United looked disorganised and shambolic at times and until Danso was sent off I thought we looked the more likely winners.

That was easily the best Vestergaard has played for us. I'd never rated him until today but a back 4 seems to suit him. Kevin Danso was very good. Pity about the red card.

As has been mentioned, our only real weak link was Ward-Prowse. The game just seemed to pass him by. I don't agree with the criticism of Hojbjerg. He had twice as many touches and tackles as Ward-Prowse, for whom he was trying to cover a lot of the time. I definitely would not play Ward-Prowse v Pompey. Hopefully, we'll have Djenepo back by then.

Agree with halftime orange. What might have been with 11 men. Utd are not getting any better. Not sure about Adams but early days. He keeps up with game and hopefully sharpen up. Sadly I am not sure what Armstrong brings. Had high hopes for him but he struggles to keep up and loses the ball. Long still useful.Boufal so skillful at times. I would normally try and defend JWP but too slow and sideways today. A point is good with 10 men.

Very, very, very important point confidence wise and "season defining" wise. Good mood before the international break after which some very important winnable games will come.

Gunn: Good lad

Bednarek: Very reliable

Vestergaard: Best game in a Saints shirt. GREAT goal. Good timing. Good thinking. Focused for 96 minutes.

Soares: I really like the guy for his positivity and loyalty and obvious friendship-building skills, but his distribution today was not good. He didn´t look quick compared to Daniel James. I still think we need him, though.

Danso: Good game , Lad, a little unlucky with the second yellow as he actually DID touch the ball in that tackle! Looks like a very good signing. Can´t believe he can play left back so well AND take the ball forward with pace down the left hand side. Could ultimately have cost us the point but he didn´t!

Romeu: 3 years younger and 4 kilos lighter??? VERY good game.

JWP: Also approved performance but less brilliant than the 2 steel midfielders of ours. I think he deserves to stay in the team.

Højbjerg: Good game from our captain. But stop diving. Now.

Boufal: Good game. Very positive. He plays with a smile on his face and is dangerous. Well done Ralphy.

Ings: Well fought. I believe in him. We have not seen his best yet but I think it will come. I really do. Awesome assist vs Brighton in my book!!

Adams: Hmmmmmm. beter luck next time. I´d like Ralph to trust in him and keep him in the team for the next games, but I am beginning to worry a little bit because of his shitty finishing so far.

Long: Typical die hard fight, but stop bringing the ball to the corner in the final minutes and instantly give away a throw in. Take the ball inside and blast the ball in the net in stead. Honestly!

Yoshida: Great jump in. Several not so easy clearances. Seemed very confident and leading from first second.

Armstrong: I like him. Good engine. Good going forward and defending.

Happy weekend everybody.

Some good saves from Angus Gunn....Cedric turning in a shift again despite obvious shortcomings... Bednarek and Vestergaard beginning to look like the best CB and one year on Vestergaard seems to have finally " come of age " -a very good performance.
Danso looked good before his red card, but like Djenepo he has to adapt to the pace of the Prem. and stop diving. Is Romeu really getting better ? ..he seems to be everywhere and is still our midfield hard man.
Hjobjerg looks a little out of place at the back but still does a captain's job all over the pitch.
Prowsie still hasn't found the form he had in the Spring, but puts himself about and shows creativity. Boufal already showing up as a most-improved player and made an excellent sub.for Redmond.
It just needs Adams to get his first goal and Ings to remember how to smile and start finding the net again.

A good result YES. Man Utd always complain about their absentees, and inconsistancy but with their resources they really ought to have done better in the last quarter against our 10 tired men.
