EPL: Michael Carrick To Lead Manchester United Against Arsenal

Manchester United equalled their Premier League record after twenty-six years by putting nine goals past nine-man Southampton – the second time Saints have lost 9-0 in as many seasons.

A red card for Saints’ Alexandre Jankewitz after only two minutes fuelled a complete destruction of the visitors, who were on the end of the same scoreline against Leicester City in October 2019.

It is only the third time a team has lost 9-0 in the Premier League, with Manchester United also beating Ipswich Town by that margin in 1995.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka opened the scoring with his first goal at Old Trafford. Marcus Rashford and Edinson Cavani also found the net either side of a Jan Bednarek own goal before the break.

After a fairly drab start to the second half, United cut loose, scoring five times in the final 21 minutes.

Cristiano Ronaldo's N925m Bugatti Veyron Involved In An Accident

By John Michael Ojo
A supercar, the Bugatti Veyron belonging to Manchester United and Portugal playmaker, Cristiano Ronaldo has crashed into a house in Majorca, according to reports in Spain on Monday.

The reports disclosed that the crashed car, valued at £1.8million, about N925 million, was one of two cars the five-time Balon D’ Or Winner had shipped over to join him in Majorca.

The incident took place this morning in Palma de Mallorca, in the district of Sa Coma, in Bunyola.

It was also revealed that the 37-year-old former Real Madrid and Juventus star is on the Balearic Island, enjoying a holiday with family before returning to the United Kingdom for pre-season, which begins later this month.

El Periodico Mediterraneo reports that the Bugatti Veyron was being driven by an employee of the Portuguese superstar, when it crashed into the entrance of a house on Monday morning.

It is understood the driver of the vehicle has suffered no serious injuries, but it is said that there is   extensive damage to the front of the vehicle.

Ronaldo, who is regarded as one of the greatest players in the history of football and holds the record for most goals scored, has a love for supercars and has a fleet valued at around £17m.

In a recent documentary of which his partner Georgina Rodriguez was the subject, fans were given a glimpse at his array of vehicles including a Ferrari 599 GTO, a McLaren Senna and a pair of Rolls-Royces.
