Manchester United equalled the Premier League record by putting nine goals past nine-man Southampton




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 best of the stats

  • 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.

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

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
