Jose Mourinho returned to Old Trafford with unmatched energy as Spurs humiliated his former club with a six-goal thrashing to record a famous victory.
Harry Kane and Son Heung-min scored twice while Serge Aurier and Tanguy Ndombele also on target. United’s Bruno Fernandes managed to achieve one goal for the struggling ten-member team.
This game marked one of their biggest thrashings at home with the last one being a 6-1 thrashing with Manchester City in 2011.
Not only was this the heaviest thrashing for united since Ole Gunner took temporary charge in 2018, but was also the most the team has suffered since Ed Woodward took control as Executive chairman in 2013.
This thrashing leaves Manchester United in position 16 in the Premier League only defeating newly-promoted Fulham and West Brom.
Tottenham, however, enjoyed the day as they moved to position 5 in the premier league rankings.
In 11 days, they have had five games, where they have managed an incredible four wins and a draw. The Spurs have also had a five-goal winning margin in their last two games.
This game also marked Tottenham’s biggest win at Old Trafford with the last time they had a 6-1 win being 1932.
Lousy day for United.
Manchester United was clearly struggling throughout the game as the Spurs outplayed them. The referee also handed Anthony Martial a red card after he dragged his hand on Eric Lamela’s face.
The match started on a good note for United as, within 30 seconds, Davinson Sanchez barged Martial over inside the box. This provided a chance for Bruno Fernandez to score the match’s first penalty.
However, the game quickly spiralled downhill for United’s with them losing their lead in 4 minutes. They were behind Tottenham by 7 minutes and by the time it was half time, the hosts had already conceded four goals.
There was no disguising the appalling of United’s defending with Harry Kane being one of the culprits.
