On Marc: Marcus Rashford scored United’s second in last night’s rout

Manchester United drew level with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table with a 9-0 thrashing of nine-man Southampton at Old Trafford.

Aided by Alex Jankewitz's red card after just 82 seconds, the Red Devils picked up their biggest league win in 26 years as sub Anthony Martial grabbed two of the nine, while Southampton defender Jan Bednarek had a dreadful night, scoring an own goal and getting sent off as well, as United drew level with City, who have two games in hand.

Elsewhere, Wolves also took advantage of some ill-discipline to seal a come from behind 2-1 win over Arsenal at Molineux.

Mikel Arteta's Gunners had David Luiz and Bernd Leno sent off after Nicolas Pepe had given them the lead, and Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho capitalised by firing the hosts to their first win in nine Premier League games.

Sheffield United continued their good form as they picked up only their third win as Jayden Bogle and Billy Sharp struck to help them defeat relegation rivals West Bromwich Albion 2-1 at Bramall Lane.

And Crystal Palace heaped more pressure on Steve Bruce and Newcastle after Jairo Riedewald and Gary Cahill fired them to a 2-1 win at St James' Park.
