Saints responded to defeat against Tottenham with a resilient display, which also saw them threaten to steal all three points on numerous occasions.
“We are really pleased because it wasn't just important to get a point, it was important the way we competed in this pitch with personality and with character," Pellegrino reflected.
“Manchester United were never comfortable on the pitch and this is something that is good for us, because after Tottenham we needed to do something to try to grow.
“I felt there were 11 players, fighting, keeping the ball and we had some chances to try to win. This is really good news for us."
