Manchester United dismantled a depleted Southampton side 9-0 at Old Trafford on Tuesday night to go level on points with Man City at the top of the Premier League.
Aaron Wan Bissaka put Man United in front shortly past the quarter-hour, racing on to a Luke Shaw cross and meeting it at the back post to poke home for an early lead.
Edison Cavani added another goal before half-time to send United into the dressing room with a 4-0 lead but the Uruguay was soon removed.
The result, which ties the largest win in Premier League history, puts Man United level on 44 points with Man City at the top of the table, but Pep Guardiola's leaders are ahead on goal difference and also have two games in hand over their city rivals.
