Manchester United secured a record-equaling 9-0 win over Southampton on Wednesday night, with the Saints ending a miserable Tuesday night with nine men.
The game got off to an explosive start when 19-year-old Alexandre Jankewitz was sent off for a horrific challenge on Scott McTominay, less than two minutes into his maiden Premier League start.
United did not take long to press home their man advantage with Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Marcus Rashford both scoring good goals before the half hour mark. A Jan Bednarek own goal and an Edinson Cavani header before half time meant the hosts went into the break 4-0 up.
Che Adams thought he had pulled one back for the visitors, only for his strike to be ruled out for offside (by a finger) just after the break. Substitute Anthony Martial then ended his eight-game goal drought, finishing Bruno Fernandes’ cross clinically. Minutes later, Scott McTominay made it 6-0 with a wonderful first time effort.
Southampton’s evening got even worse soon after with Bednarek seeing red for a trip in the box. After a lengthy VAR review, Bruno Fernandes scored from the spot, before Martial scored an eighth. Daniel James then added a ninth in stoppage time to cap off a perfect evening for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side and the worst one for the Saints since, well you know…
