Manchester United found themselves 2-0 down after just 20 minutes away to Southampton on Saturday, only to eventually grab a share of the spoils via a first-half comeback.

Recent changes in English football's hierarchy have left Manchester United unable to exert their traditional dominance in the transfer market, according to manager Jose Mourinho.

Jose Mourinho bemoaned a lack of "mad dogs" in his Manchester United team after the 2-2 draw with Southampton but praised the way his players staged another fight-back to salvage a point at St Mary's.

As players tuned into the selection show, they saw Oklahoma's name appear on the bracket in the No. 4 spot. The Nittany Lions were idle on championship weekend and are still awaiting their bowl destination.

Rashford's profligacy in front of goal against Young Boys in the Champions League in midweek provoked Mourinho to display his frustration on the sidelines.

The draw leaves the Manchester side seventh in the league, six points off the top four and a massive 16 points behind their city rivals, despite Mourinho saying his team could top-four by the end of the year.

Romelu Lukaku and Ander Herrera restored parity before the break, but United were unable to find a victor during an underwhelming second half performance during which Pogba repeatedly conceded possession, much to the visible frustration of his manager.

The first will go through central North Korea and along the northwestern coast to the city of Sinuiju near the Chinese border. They will travel some 2,600 kilometres (1,600 miles) on railway tracks together, the transport ministry said.

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Micky Hazard has warned Toby Alderweireld that he would be a fool to leave Spurs in favour of Manchester United due to the current situation at both clubs. "It was nothing to do with the system and Matic and McTominay did a very positive job for two midfield players".

"What we needed to improve in this game was simplicity in midfield". I would say the only problem that we had was that the two attacking players didn't have enough continuity because in midfield we lost too many balls. It is a match where because of that good reaction in the first half we had 45 minutes to win the game. "By losing so many balls in midfield, we broke that dynamic that normally leads to goals".

Seven minutes later, it was 2-0. Great examples of players fighting until the limits.
