Premier League

Manchester United's worst Premier League defeats.

Manchester United suffered their heaviest ever Old Trafford defeat against Liverpool as Klopp's side revelled to an impressive 5-0 win on Sunday.

Naby Keita opened the score sheet, few minutes later, Diogo Jota netted the second goal and finally Mohamed Salah scored a hat-trick to seal the win for the visitors.

After one of the darkest days in United's history, here are some worst United's Premier League defeats:

Newcastle 5 Manchester United 0, 1996

Philippe Albert's impressive lob over Peter Schmeichel capped a memorable victory as Kevin Keegan's men, who also scored through Darren Peacock, David Ginola, Les Ferdinand and Alan Shearer, thrashed their title rivals.

Southampton 6 Manchester United 3, 1996

Just a week after losing 5-0 to Newcastle, United crashed again, with Egil Ostenstad's hat-trick, an Eyal Berkovic brace and Matt Le Tissier's gem capitalising on Roy Keane's red card.

Chelsea 5 Manchester United 0, 1999

Gus Poyet scored after just 27 seconds, triggering a Blue day for United in west London, with Chris Sutton, Jody Morris, another Poyet strike and a Henning Berg own goal completing the visitors' humiliation after Nicky Butt's dismissal.

Fernando Torres ran riot, with Steven Gerrard, Fabio Aurelio and Andrea Dossena also on target and Nemanja Vidic dismissed for United, who survived the onslaught well enough to beat the Reds in the title race.

Manchester United 1 Manchester City 6, 2011

This was the first time United had conceded six goals at Old Trafford since 1930, their heaviest home defeat for 56 years triggered by doubles for Mario Balotelli and Edin Dzeko, as well as strike each by Sergio Aguero and David Silva.

Manchester United 1 Tottenham 6, 2020

United went in front courtesy of a Bruno Fernandes penalty inside the opening two minutes, but Anthony Martial's dismissal was the signal for Son Heung-min and Harry Kane to score twice, while Tanguy Ndombele and Serge Aurier also netted as Jose Mourinho enjoyed a memorable return to his former club.
