- Manchester United put up a disappointing show against Southampton that saw them forced to a 2-2 draw
- United had to rally back from two goals down to claim a vital point against the Saints
- Sir Alex Ferguson was caught on camera laughing after the Red Devils conceded the second goal
Legendary Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, was on Saturday, December 1 the center of attraction as the Red Devils were held to a 2-2 draw by Southampton at St. Mary's stadium.
The hosts dominated the opening exchanges of the Premier League encounter, with their efforts paying off in the 13th minute after taking an early lead via Stuart Armstrong.
Mark Hughes' men went on to double their lead in the 20th minute through Cedric Soares who neatly sent his effort past David De Gea.
As the cameras rolled through the dugout, United boss, Jose Mourinho, was seen fuming alongside Ed Woodward who looked utterly devastated with the score.
However, Ferguson, who was following the action from the stands reacted by readjusting his glass before briefly laughing.
The Scot was apparently perturbed with his side falling two goals behind, and his reaction looked to be out of shock.
His reaction left football fans on social media confused, with many contending they had the same reaction to the tragic comedy unfolding before their eyes in the early stages of the tie.
Here are some of the reactions:
Goals from Lukaku and Herrera in the 33rd and 39th minutes respectively brought United back to the game as both sides headed into half-time level.
However, the Red Devils midfield failed to mount more pressure in the second half in their pursuit to stage an epic come-back, leaving Mourinho gutted.
Following the disappointing draw in the backdrop of another at Old Trafford against Crystal Palace, United sit seventh on the Premier League standings, a staggering 16 points behind leaders, Manchester City.
