Manchester United equalled the Premier League record for the biggest-ever win as they beat Southampton, who finished the game with nine men, 9-0 on Tuesday evening.
The Saints got off to the worst possible start as Alex Jankewitz was sent off for a horror tackle on Scott McTominay with just two minutes gone.
It took a while for United to open the scoring through Aaron Wan-Bissaka on 18 minutes, but goals from Marcus Rashford, Edison Cavani and an own goal from Jan Bednarek gave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men a 4-0 lead at the break.
Solskjaer made two changes at the interval and another one on 50 minutes, giving Cavani, Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford a rest.
The goals didn’t stop coming, though, as a Anthony Martial brace, a McTominay long-range strike and Bruno Fernandes penalty, for which Bednarek was sent off, and a late Dan James strike handed United an emphatic win.
