Manchester United got a massive 9-0 home win against 9-man Southampton. A red card for’ Alexandre Jankewitz after only just two minutes of play triggered a complete collapse for the visitors.
It is also 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 victory means United’s hope of keeping the title race alive is still on. They tie on point with league leaders Man City who still have two outstanding matches to play.
United manager who spoke with BBC Sport after the match said said the red card motivated his side.
“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.”
