Manchester United made sure about a record-equalling 9-0 win over Southampton on Wednesday night, with the Saints finishing a hopeless Tuesday night with nine men.
The game got off to a dangerous beginning when 19-year-old Alexandre Jankewitz was shipped off for a terrible test on Scott McTominay, under two minutes into his lady Premier League start.
Joined didn’t take long to squeeze home their man advantage with Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Marcus Rashford both scoring great objectives before the half hour mark. A Jan Bednarek own objective and an Edinson Cavani header before half time implied the hosts went into the split 4-0 up.
Che Adams thought he had pulled one back for the guests, just for his strike to be precluded for offside (by a finger) soon after the break. Substitute Anthony Martial at that point finished his eight-game objective dry spell, completing Bruno Fernandes’ cross clinically. Minutes after the fact, Scott McTominay made it 6-0 with a brilliant first time exertion.
Southampton’s night deteriorated not long after with Bednarek seeing red for an excursion in the container. After a protracted VAR survey, Bruno Fernandes scored from the spot, before Martial scored an eighth. Daniel James at that point added a 10th in stoppage time to cover off an ideal night for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side and the most noticeably awful one for the Saints since, well you know…
