Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino insisted his men “dominated” the second half at Old Trafford tonight.

“In the second half we were dominating the game and taking the game to them,” he said after Saints’ 2-1 loss at Manchester United.

"We were just a bit unlucky in front of goal. We should have scored at least one.

"But, especially going forward, the way we played in the second half was the way we want to continue playing."
