Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team were slated after two disappointing results last week but they restored their confidence with a 9-0 win at Old Trafford
Manchester United 9-0 Southampton: Match statistics
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had wanted a reaction from his Manchester United players but even he wouldn’t have dreamed of what unfolded at Old Trafford on Tuesday night, as his side equalled the biggest win in Premier League history by putting nine unanswered goals past Southampton.
For a team who likes to do things the hard way, the game couldn’t have been any easier. They were given a massive helping hand by Premier League debutant Alexandre Jankewitz, who was sent for an early bath for an awful challenge on Scott McTominay with just 71 seconds on the clock, but Solskjaer’s charges deserve enormous credit for the ruthless way in which they put their visitors to the sword.
