A 1-1 draw against Manchester United in any season is certainly not a result to be sniffed at. But after producing a stirring second-half performance to level things up, Southampton looked the more likely side to snatch all three points on Saturday.
Instead, Kevin Danso – who signed for the Saints from German side FC Augsburg on a season-long loan this summer – got himself sent off in the 73rd minute with a reckless second yellow card and turned the game on its head.
Although United failed to capitalise on their man advantage, Southampton fans certainly weren’t happy with the defender’s red card.

Many supporters of the south coast side took to Twitter to vent their fury at Danso, and one labelled the sending off as being “stupid”.
Some fans even suggested the loanee had cost the Saints what would have been a massive victory in the Premier League.

Danso cost us 3 points, with that challenge. These are games we should be winning. #SOUMUN

What was Danso thinking with that challenge?! Outrageous.
Solid defence after that to hold onto a point.
Well done lads #saintsfc

We WERE the best team for 60 minutes before Danso lost the plot so only sort of happy happy TBH with a point. #SaintsFC

Stupid by Danso but he’s young and needs to make sure he learns from this. #saintsfc
