REVENGE: Mourinho’s Spurs thrash Man United 6 – 1

Published

Manchester United have produced a disastrous performances against Tottenham at Old Trafford.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side started their season with damning home loss to Crystal Palace before bouncing back with a lucky win over Brighton..

Manchester United were punished for a truly abject display as Tottenham scored six times at Old Trafford.
Son Heung-min and Harry Kane starred as Tottenham inflicted a joint-worst home Premier League defeat on 10-man Manchester United, who were hammered 6-1 at Old Trafford.

The woeful Red Devils conceded four home first-half goals in the Premier League for the first time having taken a second-minute lead through Bruno Fernandes’ penalty.

Tanguy Ndombele levelled before Kane brilliantly set up Son to put Tottenham ahead before the favour was returned shortly after Anthony Martial was sent off, the Frenchman retaliating by striking Erik Lamela in the face after he appeared to be caught by a straw arm himself.


Son had a deserved second prior to the break, before the brilliant Serge Aurier added a fifth and Kane’s late penalty meant the scoreline matched United’s 6-1 defeat to rivals Manchester City in October 2011 and completed a joy-of-six return for ex-Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho.



Harry Maguire and Eric Bailly’s woeful defending allowed Ndombele to smash home via a deflection and Son brilliantly dinked over David de Gea after Kane’s quick-thinking at a free-kick caught United’s defence cold.

Martial’s red card for raising a hand to the face of Lamela preceded more abject defending, with Bailly picked off by Kane before the England striker stroked home Son’s return pass.

Remarkably it was 4-1 when Son got the run on Bailly to prod in Aurier’s low centre before the break.

Aurier then drilled in Spurs’ fifth after collecting Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s exquisite throughball at the end of a fine team move.

Paul Pogba, who failed to track Aurier for the fifth, completed a miserable outing by crudely bringing down Ben Davies, allowing Kane to lash home his second from the spot.
