Manchester United make third entry after 9-0 win over Southampton: the biggest wins in Premier League history - in pictures

United now responsible for two of the three biggest wins, while Southampton have suffered nine-goal defeats in the past two seasons

Manchester United equalled their own record for the biggest win in Premier League history on Tuesday when they thrashed nine-man Southampton 9-0 at Old Trafford.

A Premier League debut should be the stuff of dreams but it quickly turned into a nightmare – after 79 seconds to be exact – for Swiss midfielder Alexandre Jankewitz, who was given a straight red for a reckless studs-up challenge on United's Scott McTominay.

That set the tone for the remainder of the match as Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Marcus Rashford, a Jan Bednarek own goal, and Edinson Cavani made it 4-0 at half time.

Anthony Martial, on as a substitute, scored United's fifth and two minutes later McTominay added the sixth. Bruno Fernandes then got on the scoresheet from the penalty spot after Bednarek brought down Martial in the area and was given his marching orders to reduce Southampton to nine men.

Martial gave United an 8-0 lead in the final minute of regular time, before Daniel James scored the goal that ensured a record-equalling result in the third minute of added time.

It is the second time United have produced a 9-0 win in the Premier League era having defeated Ipswich Town by the same scoreline in March 1995. It is also the second time Southampton have been defeated 9-0 in a Premier League game, losing at home to Leicester City last season.

In addition to those three results, the Premier League has seen some massive wins over the years, the biggest of which can be viewed in the photo gallery above. To move on to the next image, click on the arrows, or if using a mobile device, simply swipe.
