The Red Devils conceded four goals in 45 minutes on Sunday, the first time the club has done so in Premier League play, and ended up losing 6-1

Manchester United's defensive struggles continued on Sunday against Tottenham as the Red Devils equalled their worst defeat of the Premier League era with the 6-1 thrashing at Old Trafford.

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.

As a result of Sunday's effort, United have conceded at least two goals in each of their first three league games of a season for the first time since 1972, one of several less-than-spectacular marks achieved by the Red Devils' backline on the day


The French forward was handed a red card for putting his hands on the face of the Tottenham winger as the two battled ahead of a corner kick.

And Martial's red card against Tottenham within 28 minutes was the earliest ever earned by a United player in the Premier League at Old Trafford.

Worse was to come in the second half as goals from Serge Aurier and a Kane penalty completed the rout on Mourinho's return to the club.

United were previously hammered 6-1 at home by local rivals Manchester City in October 2011, while they have also been beaten 5-0 away by Chelsea and Newcastle in the Premier League era - with those defeats also coming in the month of October.
