Manchester United's resounding victory against 10 men Southampton could be one for the ages. The team won by 9 goals to nil with 4 goals scored in the first half and 6 in the second.

Marcus Rashford, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Edson Cavani ,Bruno Fernandes, Anthony Martial and Scott Mctominay were amongst the goalscorers.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side broke a goal record on their way to victory against the Saints. Under José Mourinho, Louis Van Gaal and David Moyes, the Reds only scored more than 5 goals twice.

Under Solskjær, United have scored more than 5 goals 8 times already. This is a testament to Solskjaer brand of attacking and highly attractive football that neither Moyes, Van Gaal nor Mourinho succeed in implementing.

The last time a Manchester United team scored 9 goals in a game was against Ipswich in 1995 under the management of the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson.

United will retain their second spot in the league after the game weekends and are already just 3 points off the top behind Manchester City.

The season has already had some great moments for Manchester United but it seems like it could only get better.

Who was your man of the match?
