Manchester United's Champions League chase stalled as substitute Michael Obafemi struck in stoppage time to earn dogged Southampton a deserved draw at an empty Old Trafford.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport's decision to lift Manchester City's two-season European ban meant a fifth-placed Premier League finish would not be enough to seal a return to the continent's top table.
United looked set to move up to third after Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial turned things around following Stuart Armstrong's early opener, only for Obafemi to direct home at the death to seal a 2-2 draw.
