Manchester United is a name synonymous with football in the Premier League. More than anyone else, they have dominated the competition, have scored more goals than anyone else and are one of only three teams to hold a championship.
But against Tottenham on Sunday – they created an unwanted piece of history.
4 – Manchester United have conceded four goals in the first half of a @premierleague match for the very first time, with this their 1,079th match in the competition. Thumped. pic.twitter.com/vSGrA8PF91

After going ahead in the third minute, they completely imploded and conceded FOUR before the half-time whistle … for the first time in their history.
Dismal defending, a petty red card and on home soil? The Old Trafford club probably want the ground to swallow them up.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has done many good things for the club, but this will stick out on his resumé for life.
