It was an incredible afternoon for both clubs who defeated two top-flight teams. For Liverpool and united this will be a day to forget from their memories. Two big failures, very rare for teams of the highest standards.
The match was dominating for Tottenham and dramatic for united.It was a very good start for United at Old Trafford with a 2nd-minute goal which Bruno Fernandes converted from the spot-kick.An early blow in the eyes of United fans.
The joy of that goal only lasted until Tottenham started fire continuous goals to the United post protected by De Gea. Its Ndombele who drew the score in the 4th minute, the beginning of the total dominance of Spurs. Then the brace from Kane and Son took the Spurs to a record victory.
Anthony Martial charged with a red card after he used his hand to hit Erik Lamela on the face. So the united played with a 10 man team that struggled to stop attacking spurs.
Manchester United suffered their joint highest premier league defeat in history after they received similar results from manchester city in 2011, both defeats came at home.
Spurs are the first visiting sides to score 4 first-half goals against united at an away match since they themselves did it so in 1957 when they defeated the Red Devils 4-3.

Aston Villa acts like Villians in front of the empty seats.they raised from a position where they were on the verge of relegation to second-tier last season.
This season they bought some quality products and Sunday night proved their boy’s worth for the cash they spend.
Ollie Watkins and Chelsea player Ross Barkley who is in Villa on loan can bring changes to the club this season.
