Manchester United once again failed to put the sword to their opposition on Saturday when Southampton walked away from Old Trafford with a point following a competitive 1-1 draw.
It was too competitive for my liking. United didn’t take their chances and gave away another soft goal.
The Reds have now drawn each of their last three matches 1-1, usually starting these games brightly before fading in the second half. It has become a trend and the players don’t know what to do about it.
Cristiano Ronaldo missed a glorious chance to cut his five-game drought which now stands at six – his longest at club level since 2009, as per Statman Dave.
Cristiano Ronaldo has failed to score in any of his last 6 appearances in all competitions, his longest drought at club level since January 2009.
A rare, unwanted record. ⚽️ pic.twitter.com/cqggWp6Lck

Jadon Sancho played him through before CR7 rounded the keeper. The Portuguese star’s attempt on goal lacked power and that allowed for a Southampton defender to get back and clear the ball.

We hope Ronaldo can put an end to his goalscoring drought against Brighton on Tuesday night.
