Manchester United equalled the Premier League record by putting nine goals past nine-man Southampton – the second time Saints have lost 9-0 in as many seasons.
A red card for Saints’ Alexandre Jankewitz after only two minutes triggered a complete collapse for the visitors, who were on the end of the same scoreline against Leicester City in October 2019.
It is only the third time a team has lost 9-0 in the Premier League, with United also beating Ipswich Town by that margin in 1995.

The hosts brutally punished the Saints with goals from Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Marcus Rashford, Edinson Cavani, Bruno Fernandes, Scott McTominay and Daniel James, as well as an Anthony Martial double and a Jan Bednarek own goal.
A miserable night for Bednarek – and his side – was complete when he was sent off for the foul leading to Fernandes’ converted 87th-minute penalty.
Man Utd dominated the ball from minute one all the way through to minute 90 – largely thanks to the early red card.
United tripled the number of passes Southampton made and had a whopping 55 touches inside the opposition penalty area.
Twenty-four shots in total for the Reds, 14 of those on target.
And for the Saints, three yellow cards, two red cards, three shots in total, ONE of those on target.
