There were also harsh words for the other players who started in Turkey, with Owen telling BT Sport: "Taking the goalkeeper [David De Gea] out, you've got Rojo that's not good enough, full stop".

Bradley said: "In theory it's a good time to face Man United, if we can make these things work in our favour on Sunday".

"They were playing a Champions League final and we were playing a summer friendly by the way the game started".

"We started the game sleeping".

As the world's most expensive player is still trying to justify his £89 million (S$153.8 million) transfer fee, Chinese investors are pondering a £200 million takeover of Southampton.

"They deserved to win, football is not just about quality, it is also about effort, commitment, playing the limits and giving everything".

The game set Manchester United's fans abuzz for two different reasons.

When bleacher seats still went on sale day-of-game only, before lights, much less gourmet hot dogs, craft beer, or video boards. Now if the Cubs can follow that close loss with a few home wins - that will be a party that will be hard to stop.

"Manchester United need stability, and it is a football club that has always trusted itself, trusted its managers, believed in their managers, and certainly given their managers time to do the right job".

"We played with five bodies in attacking areas, we kept control of the game".

United's second straight away defeat in this season's competition leaves them third in Group A with two matches to play, one point behind both Fenerbahce and Feyenoord.

With pressure growing on the Portuguese tactician, Fellaini said United's players were still confident in Mourinho's methods.

Jose Mourinho's side now sit eighth in the Premier League table, already eight points behind joint-leaders Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool, and visit Swansea City on Sunday, looking for their first league victory since September 24.

"The injuries [to Antonio Valencia, Chris Smalling and Eric Bailly] are not easy ones and the injuries are all in the same area", said Mourinho. "If I remember Stoke, Liverpool, Chelsea, Burnley... he missed a lot of goals but he was fantastic. Very young still. Some people think I'm 75 but I am 53". United have two matches remaining in the group stages.

"He's played in the cup games, and whenever he's played they've looked a different team, I think they've won most of their games with him in the team".
