Frank Lampard looks to inspire a reaction from Everton in the Premier League with the visit of Leeds. Lampard endured a fierce rivalry against the Whites and Marcelo Bielsa during his time as manager of Derby County, and the Toffees will be desperate for the points after going down at relegation rivals Newcastle midweek.

Bielsa’s troops are also in need of the points but enter the contest in good spirit after fighting back to claw out a 3-3 draw at Villa Park, with a Dan James double and Diego Llorente on the scoresheet. But the Argentine sounded a word of warning about player welfare, dampening his expectations over maintaining a good run of form in a congested schedule: “There’s no time for preparation because there also isn’t time for adequate recovery. The games are scheduled clearly ignoring that aspect. The commercial aspects and the commitments due to the sales of the games make the decisions exclusively dependent on that. All of the aspects that make a competition fair for all those in it are not there in my opinion. Teams are facing each other in different conditions.”

Manchester United booed off after Che Adams earns Southampton deserved draw

Play well, score first, play less well, concede. Manchester United’s third 1-1 draw in nine days followed the same pattern as the previous two, only with one significant difference: the sound of booing at the sound of the final whistle.

Old Trafford was not amused and had no reason to be after seeing Southampton come away with a well-deserved point, as many of the same problems that have plagued Ralf Rangnick’s side of late played out once more.

Man Utd 1-1 Southampton: Reaction from Raphael Varane

Manchester United defender Raphael Varane spoke to BT Sport after the game and said that his team will continue to fight for a place in the top four. He said:

We are disappointed about the result, it is not enough for us. We have to keep pushing. In last three or four games we have played much better but the result is not enough for us. We have to fight and be focused on the next game.

“It is the second time the beginning of second half has not been good enough and we concede a goal. We had good opportunities in the first half.

“We never give up and we have to fight until the end.”

Full-time: Man Utd 1 – 1 Southampton

90+5 mins: More frustration for Manchester United who surrender another lead and have to settle for a draw. It’s not enough to take them back into the top four but they draw level with West Ham on 40 points.

It’s another good result for Southampton who remain 10th but add another point to their tally.
