Watch: Stupid Martial Red Card Sums Up Disastrous Manchester United Performance

What a disastrous first half for Manchester United.

After taking the lead inside the first couple of minutes from the penalty spot, Manchester United would quickly fall apart at Old Trafford. They would concede two goals inside the next four minutes, both of which were examples of disastrous defending.

Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw conspired to make a balls of this ball into the penalty area, with Tanguy Ndombele providing the finishing touch.

The second wasn't much better, with Maguire once again caught out with some quick thinking from Harry Kane, with Heung-Min Son finishing off the move.

Spurs had a number of chances to extend their lead even further.

Both Son and Aurier squandered golden opportunities, but it would get much worse before the interval.

Both teams were lining up for a corner in the Manchester United penalty area when the referee would flash a red card. It soon became clear that Anthony Martial had struck out at Eric Lamela, although the Argentine may have got away lightly himself.

With Spurs adding two more before the interval, this was likely the worst half of football we have ever seen from Manchester United.

Not even three games into the season, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be in big trouble.
