Unable to follow that up, they went down 4-1 against Southampton, before handing over all 3 points in a 3-0 defeat against Liverpool.
Manchester United looking for more
Yet to get back to their high standards, the Red Devils have struggled so far in the Premier League. In their last three games, they saw a bit of everything. Starting with a surprising loss to Wolves by 1-0, they beat Aston Villa by 1-0 later in the FA Cup Round 3 fixture. However, United could not hold against Steven Gerrard’s side as they managed a 2-2 draw in their latest encounter at Villa Park.
