Manchester United hit Southampton for 9

Manchester United hit Southampton for 9

Manchester United equaled the Premier League record by putting nine goals past nine-man Southampton – the second time Saints have lost 9-0 in as many seasons.

A red card for Saints’ Alexandre Jankewitz after only two minutes triggered a complete collapse for the visitors, who were on the end of the same scoreline against Leicester City in October 2019.

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 hosts brutally punished the Saints with goals from Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Marcus Rashford, Edinson Cavani, Bruno Fernandes, Scott McTominay and Daniel James, as well as an Anthony Martial double and a Jan Bednarek own goal.

A miserable night for Bednarek – and his side – was complete when he was sent off for the foul leading to Fernandes’ converted 87th-minute penalty.

Crystal Palace recorded back-to-back wins in the Premier League for the first time since September as they kept an attack-minded Newcastle at bay at St James’ Park. The Magpies had a handful of chances to add to the second-minute strike from Jonjo Shelvey, while Roy Hodgson’s side made the most of their opportunities, turning the match around in a four-minute spell courtesy of goals from Jairo Riedewald and Gary Cahill. Riedewald’s effort trumped Shelvey’s half-volley, when his 20-yard rocket took a slight deflection off Ciaran Clark in beating keeper Karl Darlow. And then in the 25th minute 35-year-old Cahill leapt highest to flick Eberechi Eze’s corner delivery past the reach of the Magpies keeper. In doing so, the former Chelsea defender became the club’s oldest scorer in the competition. Andros Townsend should have made it 3-1 in stoppage time, but almost inexplicably struck his effort high and wide from four yards. The visiting backline was busier of the two defences with Vicente Guaita producing a great instinctive block to deny Ryan Fraser and making another save to deny the Scot. Victory sees Palace move level on 29 points with 12th place Southampton, while Newcastle remain in 16th and eight points above the drop-zone. Whether Hodgson’s side can make it a hat-trick of successes at Leeds next Monday might depend on how serious Wilfried Zaha’s injury is. The Ivory Coast winger came off in the 58th minute with what appeared to be a hamstring injury. This fourth away win of the season in the league was the product of disciplined defending, efficiency in attack and some luck. The Eagles had more than enough time to regroup after the early jolt from Shelvey and were thankful Newcastle’s defending was not at the level it was during last weekend’s win at Everton. Hodgson’s own defence was exceptional on Tuesday. Guaita once again underlined his importance in the backline when he rushed out to get enough of a hand on Fraser’s strike to push it wide. Full-back Nathaniel Clyne made a crucial challenge to deny Callum Wilson a shot on goal and Scott Dann produced a brave block to prevent substitute Allan Saint-Maximin from testing Guaita. -BBC
