Woeful Manchester United suffer 6-1 loss to Tottenham at Old Trafford

Manchester United suffered a 6-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at home on Sunday thanks to a wonderful performance from Son Heung Min.

For the first time in the Premier League, Manchester United have conceded four goals in the first half of a game.

Manchester United’s awful first half performance against Tottenham saw the Red Devils set an unwanted club record in the Premier League on Sunday.

United took the lead via Bruno Fernandes’ second-minute penalty at Old Trafford but some lousy defending meant a quickfire double from Tanguy Ndombele and Son Heung-min put Tottenham ahead.

Things grew from bad to worse when Anthony Martial was sent off following a blow to Eric Lamela’s face.

Manchester United were 4-1 down at half time thanks to a magnificent goal from Kane and a first half brace from Son Heung Min.

Today’s loss made it the first time in Premier League history that Manchester United have conceded four goals in the first half at Old Trafford.

The last time United let in three goals at home in the first 45 minutes was against Middlesbrough in May 1997.

The last time United conceded four goals in the first half of a league match was back in November 1957, also against Tottenham Spurs.

Red Devils great Gary Neville, speaking in his role as a Sky Sports commentator, slammed United’s lacklustre work in the transfer market.

With only Danny van de Beek signed thus far ahead of Monday’s transfer deadline, which he blamed for the team being so out of sorts.

“Manchester United came out of the coronavirus lockdown with class, they handled it well,” Neville said.

“They then went and finished third in the league, then there was a couple of months before the season where, I believe, they grabbed defeat from victory.

“They didn’t strengthen this first XI, they didn’t strengthen this squad, and now they’re scrambling on the final day of deadline to try and do something about it.

“It’s not good enough – every other club’s done their business. They’ve finished, they’re playing together and winning games.”

Aston Villa were the last team to concede four first-half home goals in England’s top flight against Manchester City.

Manchester United will have to do all it takes to capture Jadon Sancho after this 6-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur.
