  3. 'Victory seemed within their grasp'

    BBC South Today reporter Briony Leyland spent the evening watching the game with fans at The Saints pub in Southampton. 

    "You might have expected slumped shoulders and deflated faces but instead, when the final whistle blew, a rousing chorus of 'Oh when the Saints…' rang out. 

    "Talking to fans afterwards there was sadness at the defeat, of course, but many also took pride in a team who they felt had done their best and given a grateful crowd the thrill of a match where victory  - at times - seemed within their grasp."

    Man Utd 3-2 Southampton

    Southampton

    Southampton boss Claude Puel on Sky Sports:  "Congratulations to Manchester United. They were too clinical. But we proved we can play very well with many chances and opportunities.

    "We came back with quality. Perhaps we deserve better. It's football and congratulations to Manchester and their players.

    "Manolo Gabbiadini scored three good goals this afternoon (including the disallowed goal). There's a lot of disappointment of course.

    "We had a fantastic game without the reward. I hope we can continue on this level."
