Man United record 9 goals cruise past nine-man Southampton

Premier League 2020-21: Manchester United made PL record by nine goals past nine-man Southampton - Saints twice have lost 9-0.

The red card for Saints Alexandre Jankewitz just two minutes ultimately causes a full disaster for the visitors, who had been at the end of the without any score against Leicester City back in October 2019.

It's just the third time that the team has lost 9-0 in the Premier League, with United previously losing Ipswich Town by that margin in 1995.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka found the net with his first goal in Old Trafford. Marcus Rashford and Edinson Cavani both entered the net on either side of Jan Bednarek's own goal before the break.

Anthony Martial ended the eight-game scoring drought before Scott McTominay rode home from the edge of the area.

Later, after Bednarek became the second Saints player to be sent off-putting down Martial to enable Bruno Fernandes the opportunity to goal on a penalty spot in 87 minutes-the French forward scored his second, before Dan James finished the score in a stop period.

It was a dramatic finish as United almost matched their club record 10-0 win over Anderlecht in 1956.

1-  Manchester United have won home and away against Southampton in a league season for the first time since their last title-winning campaign in 2012-13.

2 -  Last season's 9-0 loss to Leicester came at home - this was the biggest away defeat in Southampton's history.

3 -   Saints have lost four consecutive Premier League games for the first time since April 2018.

4 -   Manchester United became only the second side to have seven different scorers in a Premier League match, after Chelsea against Aston Villa in December 2012.

5 -   United scored four goals in the first half of a Premier League game for the second time this season, also doing so against Leeds. It is the first time since 1997-98 they have scored four or more in the opening period of two matches in a campaign.

6 -   Only former United striker Eric Cantona and ex-West Ham forward Dimitri Payet (both 33 games) have assisted 15 Premier League goals in fewer appearances than Fernandes, with Tuesday's his 36th appearance in the competition.
