Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has lashed out at stars after their 2-2 draw with Southampton at Old Trafford on Monday, July 13.

A ravenous Anthony Martial finish and Marcus Rashford's goal were not enough to grant United all the three points as Michael Obafemi netted a stoppage-time leveller to deny the hosts all the three points.

Rashford had cancelled out Stuart Armstrong's opener earlier on before Martial handed his side the lead soon after.

The Red Devils thought they had nicked it before Obafemi netted in the 96th minute to thwart United's hopes of breaking into the top four.

Solskjaer has now bemoaned his side's inability to hit top gear at home but called on his wards to learn from their mistakes in the remaining matches.

"It was the worst time to concede a goal but it happens in football. We have won so many games in that way. It is all part of the learning for this team," Mirror UK quoted the Norwegian after the match.

"But we probably didn't deserve three points today. Southampton are a good team, they run, and run and chase. We never got into our rhythm today," he added.

The Manchester outfit is now scheduled to take on relegation battlers Aston Villa in their next league fixture before meeting Chelsea in the FA Cup.
