Best Tweets: 'Another weekend, another Manchester United banter'

Manchester United pulled into seventh on goals from Romelu Lukaku and Ander Herrera, and will finish the weekend at least six points back of the Top Four.

And it was the World Cup victor who seemed to bear the brunt of Mourinho's anger after the full time whistle.

Ever since Mourinho's spell at Real Madrid, he appears to have picked one player to battle with in order to lay down his authority, with mixed results: Iker, Casillas, Eden Hazard, now Paul Pogba.

This technically should've given him enough cover behind him, support in the middle and bodies ahead of him to destroy the opposition.

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.

The latest exchange comes after Mourinho lamented the lack of "mad dogs" in his midfield.

United lined up with midfielders Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic alongside Phil Jones in what was a reshuffled defence, despite Marcos Rojo being on the bench, and when asked by BT Sport who will be available for the game against Arsenal on Wednesday, Mourinho replied: "I don't know".

"With all the respect, we don't have many mad dogs that bite the ball and press all the time we don't have many people with that spirit".

'McTominay and Matic did a very good job for two midfield players'.

'In the second half we went back again to that dynamic where we lose too many balls midfield.

The draw leaves United in seventh, six points off the Champions League spots and 16 points off their rivals, Manchester City, who now sit top of the Premier League table. Although, Mourinho's freakish team selection, fielding five central midfielders and no wingers, gave Pogba few options when he was on the ball.
