Manchester United's 9-0 decimation against Southampton on Tuesday, February 2 equalled the biggest win in Premier League history.

Goals from Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial (twice), Scott McTominay, Bruno Fernandes, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Edinson Cavani, Daniel James and a Jan Bednarek own goal completed a sensational rout for the Red Devils.

Bright Kenya News takes a look back at some of the biggest wins in the Premier League:

Southampton 0-9 Leicester City (2019)

The most damaging fact about the Saints' rout on Tuesday night is that it is not the first time they endured such a heavy defeat in Ralph Hasenhuttl's time as manager.

Leicester demolished them in ruthless fashion after Southampton had defender Ryan Bertrand sent off for a reckless challenge on Ayoze Perez prior to Ben Chilwell's opening goal.

It came in the 10th minute, with Perez going on to complete a hat trick.

Jamie Vardy got his hat-trick, while Youri Tielemans and James Maddison also scored in the biggest away win in English top-flight history.

Chelsea's 8-0 wins

The London side had been at their most ruthless, vindicated by two occasions where they scored eight times without reply.

The first was an 8-0 shredding of Wigan Athletic to clinch their third Premier League title in 2010, Nicholas Anelka (twice), Frank Lampard, Salomon Kalou, Didier Drogba (hat trick) and Ashley Cole wrapping up an impressive win.

The second was inflicted in similar circumstances on Aston Villa, demolishing them 8-0 in 2012.

Ramires scored twice while Fernando Torres, David Luiz, Branislav Ivanovic, Oscar, Hazard and Lampard all scored in Villa's heaviest Premier League defeat

Tottenham 9-1 Wigan (2009)

Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe scored five times in the second half, scoring what was then the Premier League's second-quickest hat-trick in just seven minutes!

At that time, Defoe emerged to only the third Premier League player to score five goals in a single game after Alan Shearer and Andy Cole.

Aaron Lennon, Peter Crouch, David Bentley and Niko Kranjcar all scored as hapless Wigan were ripped to bits at White Hart Lane.

Manchester United 9 Ipswich 0 (1995)

Andy Cole led the charge in United's biggest league victory in 103 years as he scored five times at Old Trafford.

United scored six in the second half, with Mark Hughes hitting the net twice.

Paul Ince and Roy Keane also netted for Alex Ferguson's team against an Ipswich side who finished bottom of the pile at the end of the season.

Despite that ruthless display, United were beaten to the Premier League title by Blackburn.
