TOTTENHAM have become the first side in Premier League history to score four goals against Manchester United in the first half.

Despite taking the lead in just the second minute at Old Trafford through a Bruno Fernandes penalty, the Red Devils capitulated after Spurs equalised moments after.


Tanguy Ndombele fired Spurs back on level terms, with Son Heung-min then putting the visitors ahead in the seventh minute.

Anthony Martial was then sent off for a slap on Erik Lamela, before Kane tapped home and Son tucked in his second to leave Spurs winning 4-1 at half-time.

In stats obtained by Opta, United's clash against Spurs was the first time they have conceded four first half goals in their 1,079th match in the competition.

And Tottenham are also the first visiting side to Old Trafford to score four first half goals against United since they beat United 4-3 in 1957.

United's two strikes they let in the opening seven minutes was the earliest they have conceded two goals since their 3-0 defeat against Arsenal five years ago.

In another unwanted stat, Martial's 28th minute red card was the earliest a United player has been given his marching orders at Old Trafford in the Premier League.

Incredibly, the French striker now has more red cards than he has had shots on target in the league this term.

Jose Mourinho's men picked up where they left off in the second half as Serge Aurier blasted in a fifth in the 51st minute.



And Kane got his second of the contest in the 79th minute when he nestled in a penalty after Paul Pogba brought down Ben Davies.

That goal means United have conceded six goals in a match in the Premier League for just the third time – with both of those results coming in October.

Southampton in 1996 and Manchester City in 2011 were the two clubs that had previously hit United for six.

United have now conceded 11 goals in their first three Premier League games this season – the second highest in the top-flight.
