How Manchester United Equalled 26 Years Record

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.

Marcos Alonso Confirms He No Longer Want To Take A kneel Before Matches

Spanish and Chelsea defender, Marcos Alonso, has confirmed that he will no longer take a knee like others before matches, because the anti-racism gesture was “losing strength”.

Marcos Alonso, said he will make his own protests against racism and discrimination in football in his own way by pointing to the ‘No Room for Racism’ badge on his sleeve.

“I am fully against racism and I’m against every type of discrimination, and I just prefer to put my finger to the badge where it says no to racism, like they do in some other sports and football in other countries,” Alonso said.

Following the resumption of Premier League football after a COVID-19-enforced break last year, players, officials and staff have been taking a knee before kick-off to show support for the movement for racial equality.

On if his decision to stop the anti-racism gesture had anything to do with politics, Alonso said: “I don’t know, I just prefer to do it this way.”

The defender has been refusing to take a knee since the start of this season like most other players in English football

Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha was the first player in the English top flight to opt out of the gesture earlier this year.

He explained that taking a knee was “degrading”, adding that there should be better education, and that social media companies should be taking stronger action against online abuse.
