The Red Devils are now level on points with Manchester City at the top of the table, with the two sides separated by goal difference.

Southampton have lost their last four league games and are 12th in the standings with 29 points.

"We can't really ask for much more, so we need to use this performance and the result as motivation really, and something to mirror in the next few games".

"It's always good to score lots of goals and we're happy, it's three points we have needed", Rashford told BT Sport of the ruthless showing. "It was about getting quality and width and we did".

Rashford was similarly disinterested in the Premier League table.

"Whenever we can, we want to put these types of results together and go out and really finish teams off and this was a ideal example of that", said Rashford.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, however, praised the performance of Greenwood in spite of the fact that he failed to find the net. This equals the landmark of most goals scored against one club by another in one Premier League season.

United scored six in the second half, with Mark Hughes on target twice. It's easy to take your foot off the gas but we didn't want to do that we went out in the second half the same as the first.

Nine goals. Seven different goalscorers.

Newcastle United's brief recovery after winning away to Everton at the weekend came to a rapid half as they lost 2-1 at home to Crystal Palace, who fought back from Jonjo Shelvey's early goal with first-half strikes from Jairo Riedewald and Gary Cahill.

"We are all confident at the minute, but getting the goals today is great for everyone", said the winger. Bednarek scored an own goal before being dismissed.
