Jose Mourinho’s side were facing an embarrassing defeat early on as the Saints went into a 2-0 lead inside the opening 20 minutes.
Manchester United recovered from a terrible start but were still held to a disappointing draw in another unconvincing display at struggling Southampton.
Marcus Rashford inspired a comeback before half-time, with two goals in six minutes from Romelu Lukaku and Ander Herrera earning the visitors a point.
That makes it almost half a season with just a solitary win, and Mark Hughes’ side will reflect on a costly capitulation at the end of the first half after fine goals from Stuart Armstrong and Cedric Soares had seemingly put them in control.
United move seventh – still six points off a Champions League place and a massive 16 shy of the lead held by rivals Manchester City.
