A young pitch invader was seen being dragged off the pitch at St Mary’s in tears on Saturday.

During Manchester United ’s 1-0 win over Southampton, the youngster entered the field and was seemingly dragged off by security while he was close to tears.

It’s not clear why the boy entered the pitch during the encounter or why he was so forcibly removed.

Those on social media have very opposing views to the image showing him being taken off.

One scorned: “Disgusting a kid being dragged like that!” Another said: “Damn right, it's called discipline. We need a lot more of that in this world.”

The game ended with United claiming their second competitive win under Erik ten Hag – look who is looking to forge something of a revival for the Premier League giants.

Bruno Fernandes’ neat goal in the first-half saw the Red Devils clinch all three points.

After the match, the United boss admitted to there previously being attitude problems. He said: “You have to adapt and find a certain way to win games and that is what we did today. That was the problem, especially in the second game. When you don’t give everything and you don’t have the attitude for 100 per cent and you don’t have right team spirit, you don’t have to talk about philosophy or game plan or whatever. “

But the afternoon’s invader was one of two incidents that occurred during Saturday’s action involving supposed pitch invaders.

An Arsenal steward almost grabbed hold of Oleksandr Zinchenko during celebrations for the Gunners’ winning goal against Fulham.

The former Manchester City player wasn't in his usual wear – instead dressed in all black.

The Ukraine skipper was not in action for their fourth game of the season due to injury.

When Gabriel scored a late winner for the north London outfit,, Zinchenko ran to join the celebrations with his team-mates.

But as he jumped into the group hug with his squad it left one steward bewildered.

She looked around not sure what to do before approaching Zinchenko and then backing off again.
