Manchester United battered Southampton 9-0 on Tuesday night, which was hell for one Twitter account dedicated to the Saints loss to Leicester City last season.

Southampton were left shell shocked by United as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side put nine past them in the Premier League.

The hosts had a one man advantage as early as79 seconds in, as Alex Jankewitz managed to get himself sent off very early in his first ever league start for the Saints.

It was all downhill from their for Ralph Hasenhuttl's side, who lost 9-0 for the second time in his time at St Mary's, having been beaten by the same scoreline by Leicester City last season.

That loss to Leicester has become an obsession during their resurgence, with the game endlessly being referenced. One Twitter account "Has The 9-0 Been Mentioned," which keeps track of television coverage mentioning last season's loss, took tonight's game very seriously, and even ended up changing their name following the result.

Jankewitz's sending off was the beginning of things for Southampton and it took United just 18 minutes to take the lead, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka opeining the scoring.

Marcus Rashford scored the second in the 25th minute before his cross was turned in by Jan Bednarek nine minutes later to make it 3-0.

Edinson Cavani made it 4-0 before half-time and nearly won a penalty on half time but VAR ruled the foul was outside the box.

The video officials stepped in again tomarginally rule out Che Adams goal at the beginning of the second half and once again it only got worse for the Saints.

Substitute Anthony Martial made it 5-0 with a nice goal in the 69th minute before Scott McTominay's long range strike two minutes later made it six.

More VAR controversy was to come as Bednarek was sent off for a foul in the box on Martial. Bruno Fernandes made it 7-0 from the spot, Martial scored again to make it eight in the 90th minute and Dan James rounded things off in injury time.
