Manchester United suffered one of their heaviest defeats in recent seasons after losing 6-1 to Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on Sunday, October 4.

The loss also reflects that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men are not ready to contend for any title after a shambolic display in the game.

Despite taking the lead through Bruno Fernandes inside the second minute, the home side capitulated after Spurs restored parity moments later through Tanguy Ndombele.

United had to play a man less for the better part of the match after Anthony Martial was handed marching orders for a violent act in the 28th minute.

The red card is understood to be the earliest a United player has been sent off at Old Trafford in the club's Premier League history.

Perhaps taking advantage of their opponents' numerical deficiency, Spurs struck twice before the breakthrough Harry Kane and Heung-Min to make it 4-1.

The halftime result meant it was the first time Man United had shipped in four goals in the first half in the EPL.

The outcome also meant Spurs are the first visiting team to score four first-half goals at Old Trafford since they beat them 4-3 in 1957.

In the second half of the match, the north London side continued from where they left as Serge Aurier and Kane both found the back of the net.

The encounter eventually finished 6-1 becoming the third time United have conceded six times in a match - with all the three results coming in October.

The Manchester side has now shipped in 11 goals in their first three Premier League games this season.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Amad Traore's deal from Italian club Atalanta to Premier League giants Manchester United has been concluded and the 18-year-old winger is expected to move to Old Trafford in January.

Latest reports have it that the Ivorian teenager agreed a deal worth €30million (£27.2million) plus add-ons.

However, Atalanta earlier announced that the prodigy will be on his way to local club Parma on loan before United made their move early on deadline day.
