Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed why his team recorded a disappointing 1-1 draw at the home of Southampton in the first game of week four Premier League matches.

Solskjaer spoke to BBC Sports after the game as he revealed that poor finishing was responsible for the draw.

Manchester United missed the chance to secure a place in the top four spots on the Premier League as a result of the draw with Southampton.

The Red Devils were unable to build on a fast start in their away game against the Saints at the St. Mary’s Stadium after the opening goal from Daniel James.

The Welsh international winger scored a very good goal off the assist from Scott McTominay to take his league tally to three goals in four games.

Manchester United wasted several opportunities to score a second goal in the first half as Solskjaer and his players led 1-0 at the halftime interval.

The Red Devils were then punished for some slack defending in the first quarter of the second half after Kevin Danso’s cross was met by a Jannik Vestergaard header to equalise for the hosts.

Danso was sent off for two yellow cards in 72 minutes but that didn’t stop Southampton from holding out for a 1-1 draw.
