MANCHESTER, England – Tottenham tore Manchester United to a 6-1 win at Old Trafford on Sunday, exposing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s defensive weaknesses in inflicting the team’s heaviest defeat in the Premier League at home

Only once since 1930 have United conceded six at home – to Manchester City nine years ago Not since 1986, United have opened the league season with back-to-back home defeats

It was a crushing defeat to a Tottenham side led by Jose Mourinho, who was sacked in 2018 to make way for Solskjaer And against a team that played eight games in 22 days across three competitions and were in the drags after two minutes at Old Trafford

But after Bruno Fernandes’ penalty, United’s miserable defense saw Tanguy Ndombele tie in the fourth minute and Son Heung-Min to score again within three minutes

United may be wronged that Erik Lamela’s apparent play led to Anthony Martial being sent off in the 28th minute But the team were already led in tatters by Tottenham

Harry Kane scored his first in the half hour, Son scored again in the 37th, Serge Aurier was on target in the 51st and Kane completed the rout from the penalty spot in the 79th

« Very impressive », said Mourinho « The team were phenomenal from the second minute Losing 1-0, great personality »

Unlike United, who opened the season with a 3-2 loss to Crystal Palace Two more goals were conceded in Brighton last weekend, but Fernando came to United’s rescue with a point winner. penalty at the 10th minute of the stoppage time

Contrary to this late penalty on the south coast, United immediately pulled away from goal against Tottenham

The match was barely 30 seconds old when Davinson Sanchez tripped Anthony Martial to stop a run from the penalty spot and Fernandes converted from the seat

Fernandes can be counted on to score penalties – it was his 18th in a row, including at previous Sporting club in Lisbon What we can’t trust is United’s shambolic defense despite the fact that Captain Harry Maguire became the world’s most expensive defender when he was signed last year for £ 80million (then $ 97million)

Twice he weakly directed the ball, unable to clear the danger, before Ndombele pushed the leveler

United were separated when Kane slipped the pass for Son who lifted the ball over goalkeeper David De Gea It was the first time in a decade that three goals had been scored in the opening seven minutes of a Premier League match

Tottenham’s spot of the day came with Lamela appearing to cheat the ref after being gently punched by Martial in retaliation for a slight push to his face by the Argentinian Lamela grabbed his face before falling to the ground – and Martial’s red was confirmed by a VAR check

Tottenham didn’t seem to need the man advantage, it was so ruthless and United were so poor

Eric Bailly received the ball and passed carelessly to Nemanja Matic, whose lack of control was grabbed by Kane The forward intercepted the ball and played a brace with Son before scoring

United were torn in the right flank for Tottenham’s fourth After being released by Moussa Sissoko, Aurier put the ball between the legs of Maguire, the center half who had drifted to the left-back, and Son a launched a shot through De Gea

United were in disarray and were lucky enough not to concede until after the break It was Pierre-Emile Højbjerg’s weighted pass that prepared Aurier for the fifth

Pogba compounded a dismal display by fouling Ben Davies to concede the penalty Kane converted

The coronavirus pandemic has kept fans out of the stadium – avoiding Solskjaer’s boos from his own supporters

LONDON – Bukayo Saka and Nicolas Pepe scored within three minutes of each other to give Arsenal a 2-1 win on Sunday and leave Sheffield United scoreless so far this Premier League season

Arsenal broke the deadlock in the 61st minute when Mohamed Elneny broke into the box and found Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, whose ball to Hector Bellerin saw the center back for Saka to go home at the far post

Bellerin was the supplier again for the second as he passed the ball to Pepe The Ivorian striker burst into the box unchallenged and shot low in front of Aaron Ramsdale for his first goal since returning a penalty kick in the 2-1 FA Cup quarter-final victory over Sheffield United in June

As is often the case with Arsenal, things just didn’t turn out as David McGoldrick scored a fine late 20-yard goal to win Sheffield United’s first league goal of the season

But the Blades haven’t found a way to get their first points of the campaign after four games

WOLVERHAMPTON, England – Pedro Neto scored the only goal as Wolverhampton sentenced Fulham to another Premier League loss on Sunday

The striker’s strike earned the hosts a 1-0 victory as Nuno Espirito Santo’s side regained their form

Alphonse Areola’s double save denied Neto and Nelson Semedo, while Aboubakar Kamara missed a great opportunity to level for visitors

This meant Fulham slipped to a fourth straight loss to stay at the bottom of the Premier League

Despite a tireless display, it was a return to first place for Scott Parker’s side, who have scored 11 goals so far – the most they have conceded in their first four league games since 1960

Wolves, mistreated by their recent loss of form, were cautious but still had too much for Fulham to end his three-game losing streak

USA defender Antonee Robinson made his league debut for Fulham and left-back tested Wolverhampton goalkeeper Rui Patricio early after a strong run

Wolves broke through 11 minutes after the interval when Leander Dendoncker’s shot was blocked by Robinson As Fulham failed to clear, the ball ricocheted at Neto, who broke through the bottom corner of 16 meters
