Man United suffered their joint-heaviest defeat in the Premier League – losing by five goals for the fourth time in the competition.
This is the first time since October 2011 against Manchester City.
Tottenham are the first visiting side to score four first half goals in a league game away at United since Spurs themselves also did so in November 1957 in a 4-3 win.
In the Sunday game, Manchester United were punished for a truly abject display conceding four home first-half goals in the Premier League for the first time having taken a second-minute lead through Bruno Fernandes’ penalty after Davinson Sanchez clumsily chopped down Martial.
Tanguy Ndombele levelled before Kane brilliantly set up Son to put Tottenham ahead and the favour was returned shortly after Anthony Martial was sent off, the Frenchman retaliating by striking Erik Lamela in the face after he appeared to be caught by a straw arm himself.
Then it was one goal after the other, first with Ndombele smashing home via a deflection and Son brilliantly dinked over David de Gea after Kane’s quick-thinking at a free-kick caught United’s defence cold.
Kane then stroked home Son’s return pass. Remarkably it was 4-1 when Son got the run on Bailly to prod in Aurier’s low centre before the break.
Aurier then drilled in Spurs’ fifth after collecting Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s exquisite throughball at the end of a fine team move.

Man United was further punished when Paul Pogba crudely brought down Ben Davies, allowing Kane to lash home his second from the spot.
