Feyenoord went ahead after 15 minutes through Nicolai Jorgensen, but two quick-fire yellow cards saw Eric Botteghin sent off, with his second yellow earned for a hand ball in his own penalty area on the stroke of half-time.

Jones was able to save Rafael Forster's penalty, but the Brazilian was the quickest to react and fire home the loose ball from close range.

To add to Jones's frustration, he also picked up an injury during the game.

Manchester United are now third in the table, a point behind Feyenoord, after a 2-1 defeat at leaders Fenerbahce which leaves qualification in the balance.

Saints missed the chance to go into half-time on level terms when Dusan Tadic's penalty, given for a controversial handball by Ivan Perisic, was saved by Samir Handanovic.

Virgil van Dijk equalised on 64 minutes before Saints completed the turnaround when a low cross from Tadic deflected off Yuto Nagatomo and into the roof of the Inter net.
