A run down the wing by a mouse provided the only moment of relief for home fans as Manchester United again flattered to deceive at old Trafford.

Charlie Austin scored the winner with his first touch in a Southampton shirt to pile the pressure on beleaguered United manager Louis van Gaal as the supporters once again vented their anger towards the Dutch boss.

Boos rang out around Old Trafford at half-time and following the final whistle as Saints recorded only their second win at United's home since 1988, but also their second in 13 months.

Indeed the only entertainment was provided from a rather unusual pitch invader.
