FULL-TIME: Manchester United 1-1 Southampton
Adam Lallana (or possibly Dejan Lovren) gets a late equaliser as Moyes sees his side restricted and drop even more points. When will this side kick into gear? The Saints, however, continue their bright start to the campaign.
90'+2—Purposeful attacks from United are failing to produce any clear cut chances! Even Evra is forward but the crosses just aren't finding their men!
87'—Replays suggest Lallana might just have got the last touch in the scramble... Will we see a dramatic winner?
86'—GOAL! Man Utd 1-1 Southampton! A corner finally proves Utd's undoing. The ball comes into the danger zone and Lovren manages to prod it home!
83'—Great chance for Southampton! Clyne gets it, but the full-back can't make the most of it as De Gea again survives. Heading for a tense closing few minutes here...
80'—Another roll of the dice from Pochettino. Wanyama is withdrawn for the more attack-minded Guly do Prado.
76'—Saints looking for openings but United remaining defensively resolute. Moyes would like to see his side show a bit more composure on the ball, though.
73'—Suddenly it is all Southampton! Rickie Lambert crosses in, but Osvaldo again can't quite find the target with his right-footed effort! For United, Fellaini has just been withdrawn for Danny Welbeck.
72'—Chance for the visitors! Schneiderlin feeds Adam Lallana, but the midfielder's low effort is well claimed by De Gea.
71'—Lovren fouls Van Persie as the Dutchman releases a little defensive pressure in his own half.
70'—Ward-Prowse immediately takes over dead-ball duties, and his first such delivery is only narrowly headed off target by Osvaldo.
69'—A sub from the visitors, Ward-Prowse coming on for Steven Davis.
68'—United in the ascendancy now, with a number of chances. Boruc denies Januzaj's 30-yard ripsnorter, and Fellaini can't quite turn the rebound in. Close.
65'—Southampton still pressing. Lambert with an effort, but it flies wide.
60'—Rooney has the ball in the net, but he's rightly ruled offside.
57'—Substitution for Southampton. Rickie Lambert replaces Rodriguez as the Saints look for an equaliser.
43'—Osvaldo gives the ball away with a lazy pass to end a Saints break. He's not impressed so far.
50'—Nani takes his time on the edge of the box before teeing up Fellaini... The big man meets the ball and strikes it first time. Deflection, corner to United.
46'—Second half away at Old Trafford. No changes to announce from either side.
45'—HALFTIME! United lead through Van Persie's goal, but Southampton will feel aggrieved to be behind. They had excellent chances, for Rodriguez and Osvaldo, but failed to take them.

38'—YELLOW CARD! Schneiderlin chops down Januzaj and deservedly goes into the book. He's the first player to pick up a yellow in this match.
31'—Southampton still looking dangerous, but United have been lifted by Van Persie's goal. They look as if they believe they can add it to now.
