Actually, United’s win against Southampton wasn’t the first time a team won 9-0 at home in the PL. They achieved that feat 16 years ago against Ipswich Town in March 1995. Andy Cole scored 5 goals that day as Ipswich were all but confirmed to be relegated, with United going for the title.

As for Leeds United, this is their worst Premier League defeat to date. They have never lost by a worse scoreline than the 7-0 thrashing they were handed by Pep Guardiola’s City. Surprisingly, no Leeds player was sent off here. Phil Foden and Kevin de Bruyne grabbed braces and this was the second 7-0 result this season after Chelsea smacked Norwich City by a similar scoreline earlier during the campaign, courtesy of a Mason Mount hat-trick.
