A brilliant Spurs ruthlessly exposed United's weakness at the back and made the most of the space given to them in midfield, re-opening the question of whether Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba can play together for United in a three-man set-up.

Yet what will also please Mourinho is the fact that his team were simply stronger, faster and better organised than his former club.

It started well for United with Fernandes scoring a second-minute penalty after Martial was brought down by Davinson Sanchez.

Son then added his second, turning in a Serge Aurier cross at the near post. The last time United had conceded four first-half goals at home in a league match was in 1957 -- also against Spurs.

Serge Aurier made it 5-1, six minutes after the interval, finishing off a smart passing move with a drilled effort into the far corner after gliding past an inattentive Pogba.

Kane went close to a sixth but David De Gea did well to keep out a fierce drive at the near post before the Spurs striker wrapped up the scoring from the spot, after a wild challenge from Pogba on Ben Davies.
