Romelu Lukaku was stretchered off the pitch receiving oxygen after suffering a concussion from an accidental clash of heads early in the game.

Marcus Rashford came on to partner Jesse Lingard in attack but the young forwards lacked a killer instinct as Untied fell to third in the table.

During Jose Mourinho’s post-match interview with BT Sport he confirmed that United will go to Everton on Monday without any fit strikers.

Lukaku will be out for at least six days after his head injury and Mourinho delivered further bad news about Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

“Zlatan one month out,” was all it took to send shockwaves through the fan base of a club who were struggling to score even with their best strikers.

That leaves Antony Martial and Rashford to lead the line for United against the Toffees.

The home draw to Southampton completed a woeful festive period for United as they drew three successive games with Leicester, Burnley and the Saints.

But Jose insisted he was happy with the rest of the squad and tempered hopes of a January shopping spree for recruitments.

“I really don’t know [if United need reinforcements], but I’m happy with the players’ attitude and the players’ desires and I have no complaints about my players.”

We believe you, Jose.
