United were looking to build on their huge win in their season opener against Leeds when they took on the Saints, only for them to settle for a stalemate.

Fred scored an own goal in the first half of the encounter staged at St Mary's to hand the hosts the lead, before Mason Greenwood stepped up shortly after the break to level matters.

Solskjaer made two changes to his team from the one that beat Leeds 5-1, with Anthony Martial and Nemanja Matic being introduced.

However, the tactical tweak failed to make a positive difference as United went on to drop points in the second match of the new season.

The result saw furious fans resort to social media to vent their anger, with many of them blaming Solskjaer for the outcome.

Using the hashtag #OleOut, the majority of the fans took issue with the Norwegian's team selection, criticising his move to bench summer signings Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane.

How fans reacted to United's draw

One said:

"Terrible team selection, terrible midfield, players not pressing, new buys warming the bench #OleOut."

While a fourth posted:

"Ole should learn from Chelsea and City. I don’t know when he’s going to use players he’s bought. Still I’m #OleOut."

While a good number of fans openly criticised Solskjaer, there are few who still exuded confidence in the club legend to steady the ship.
