Comments:

League position: 8th Southampton had now failed to score in four consecutive home games in the top division for the first time. Only relegated Sunderland had now scored fewer goals in home games in this Premier League season than the Saints (now 17). They had now missed a penalty in three of their last five games in the Premier League. Southampton manager Claude Puel said: "We can feel shame after this game because we had many opportunities in the second-half. We had two different halves. The first one was without intensity and it was very difficult after the penalty because that would have given us the confidence. The second-half was interesting as there was quality and many chances without a good reward."

Comments:

League position: 6th Still with one game to play, Manchester United will now record their lowest-ever total of wins in a Premier League season (now 17). United had now drawn 15 games in a league season for the first time since 1991-92 in League Division One. Michael Carrick came on as a substitute to make the 700th appearance of his club career. Manchester United manager José Mourinho said: “I hope to play Joel Pereira against Crystal Palace. I hope to play Sergio Romero in the [Europa League] final. Hopefully we don’t have problems with these two keepers but David De Gea is top in the world and obviously we want to keep the top in the world. We have the Argentina national goalkeeper and the Spanish national goalkeeper; two of the best national teams in the world. There is a good tradition of goalkeepers in both countries. We have these two guys. They are phenomenal. And I keep saying the Portuguese kid [Pereira] is a very good goalkeeper. So in relation to that, we are in safe gloves.”
