Ralph Hasenhuttl seems to forget his side went in at half-time lucky to have a two-goal lead.
The Southampton manager has taken a swipe at Manchester United after the Reds pulled off a comeback from 2-0 to win at St. Mary’s.
Three second half goals — one from Bruno Fernandes and an Edinson Cavani headed brace — was enough to grant United three points to keep them in the mix in the top half of the Premier League as we approach a hectic festive period of football.
Speaking after the match on Sunday, Hasenhuttle was quick to play down United’s brilliant comeback.
He said: “When you hear them celebrating in their dressing room, you know what you have done today and how tough opponent you have been — because they were celebrating like they’d won the Premier League.”

How bitter does he sound, eh?
United were the better side throughout yesterday’s game and Southampton’s first goal, which came as a blow to the Reds, was completely against the run of play.
Oh — and comebacks are always celebrated.
Yesterday’s deserved a sing song or two because Solskjaer is trying to build a winning mentality around this side and they would have enjoyed their win over the Saints, which required hard work.
