The hosts actually started brightly in Sunday’s clash with Spurs, taking an early lead through a Bruno Fernandes penalty.
United were handed the spot-kick within the opening minute, with Fernandes then scoring the earliest penalty in a Premier League game (01:37) since Manchester City star Sergio Aguero against Newcastle in February 2015 (01:12).
However, from that point forward, the wheels fell off as Tottenham began to run riot in what ended up as a four-goal first half.
Spurs’ first goal came in the fourth minute through Tanguy Ndombele before Son Heung-min added a brace with goals in the seventh and 37th minutes.
Sandwiched between Son’s goals was a goal from Harry Kane, as United’s defence completely collapsed in an embarrassing effort from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
