See for yourself: Another Football History Made

Manchester United made yet another Premiership History by equalling their highest score in the league, a 9:0 destruction of Ipswich Town in 1995, which was equalled by Leceister City's 0:9 trumping of Southampton at the Saint Mary's Stadium in 2019. Twenty six (26) years down the line and yesterday at the Old Trafford Stadium, the Theatre of Dreams produced yet another Ole masterpiece to wallop Southampton FC, a convincing 9:0 scoreline, to close the gap on goal difference with leaders Manchester City's 24 as against the Red Devil's 10 at kickoff.

A send-off for Saints' debutant Alexandre Jankewitz after only two minutes for his career threatening tackle on Scott McTominay, of which Saints Manager Husenhuttl could only throw his arms up in the air in disbelief, knowing referee Mike Dean had no alternative other than to show the 19-year-old Swiss midfielder a straight red card.

This triggered a complete collapse for the visitors who were now helplessly at the mercy of the United attacking unit.

Right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka opened the scoring with his first goal at Old Trafford. Marcus Rashford and Edinson "el matador" Cavani also found the net either side of a Jan Bednarek own goal before the break.

Anthony Martial ended an eight-match goal drought before Scott McTominay scored a stunning long range goal from the edge of the box.

Then, after Bednarek became the second Saints player to be sent off - bringing down Martial to allow Bruno Fernandes the chance to score from the penalty spot on 87 minutes - the French forward netted his second, before Dan James wrapped up the scoring in stoppage time.

It was an unbelievable ending as United almost matched their club record 10-0 victory over Anderlecht in 1956 barring time.

After the game, Manchester United manager Solskjaer speaking to BBC Sport said: "When they had a man sent off it was up to us to get the first goal. You have to take your chances in tight or open games - you never know what might be the deciding factor. We know, better than anyone, what goal difference can do to you because we have lost the league on goal difference. Confidence is one thing but it was about the mojo and spark - the X-factor."

This is sure to boost the Red Devil's title challenge hopes, though they are now level on points (44) with league leaders Manchester City but have played two more games.

What do you think of this performance?
