Wayne Rooney believes that had Manchester United taken their chances, the final result could have been very different.
The loss ended United’s unbeaten run of 10 games as Dusan Tadic’s goal was the only shot on target in the whole match. The home side struggled to create chances as Louis van Gaal’s men dropped down to fourth spot in the table.
Speaking to Sky Sports after the match, he said: “That’s football, that’s how it goes. I think we deserved to win the game today.”
“They had the chance in the first minute and the goal – which they’ve taken – so I think overall we had the better chances, we played the better football and deserved to win, but we’ve been punished for not taking our chances.”
“I’ve seen Southampton play better to be honest. We stopped a lot of their threats, but we got punished for the goal they scored and we didn’t take our chances.”
