Three goals in seven minutes, penalty with 30 seconds, expulsion controversial. In an intense game at Old Trafford, the Tottenham thrashed the Manchester United of a 6-1 turn this Sunday for the fourth round of the Premier League.
The result represents the biggest rout suffered by the Red Devils in the history of the Premier League, equaling the 6 to 1 suffered for Manchester City in October 2011, also in their stadium. The club still suffered 5-0 away from home for Newcastle in 1996 and Chelsea in 1999.
Son Heung-Min was the highlight with two goals and an assist in a match in which he was doubtful for physical reasons. Tanguy Ndombélé and Harry Kane also left their mark on the Spurs before the break, while Bruno Fernandes had opened the scoring for the hosts. In the final stage, Serge Aurier and Kane extended the advantage of the team led by José Mourinho.
In addition to five goals, the first half was still marked by a controversial situation. At 28min, when the score was 2-1 for Londoners, Lamela hit Martial, who struck back and ended up seeing the right red card, while the Argentine did not receive any punishment.
With the result, Tottenham goes to seven points and is in fifth place and crowns a week in which they had already qualified for the quarterfinals of the English League Cup by eliminating Chelsea on penalties.
United, which has one game less, stops at three points and appears only in 16th position. The Red Devils are zeroed in their stadium in this English Championship, since in the other game at Old Trafford the competition lost to Crystal Palace.
