I can bet Jürgen Klopp and his boys didn't see this one coming. A 7 - 2 defeat The Liverpool backline was ripped apart as Aston Villa left the defending champions reeling. On the other side, Ole Gunnar Solskjær suffered his "worst day as Manchester United manager" on Sunday as his side were humiliated 6-1 at home by Tottenham.

Aston Villa 7 - 2 Liverpool - The Premier League, Wow!

  • The champions fell to their heaviest-ever Premier League defeat on an astonishing night at Villa Park.

  • Ollie Watkins hat-trick as champions stunned.

  • Jürgen Klopp felt Liverpool were guilty of 'massive mistakes'

A dismal Liverpool were beaten 7-2 in humiliating fashion by Aston Villa on Sunday, on a night that was almost too bad to comprehend.

An Ollie Watkins hat-trick, Jack Grealish double, a goal from Ross Barkley and John McGinn's deflected volley left Jurgen Klopp and his side, who scored through Mohamed Salah's brace stunned and humiliated at Villa Park. it could have been more had Ross Barkley converted any of his three golden opportunities. Liverpool ship seven for the first time since 1963.

Villa led after four minutes when Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian conceded possession to Jack Grealish, who teed up Watkins for a tap in. The lead was doubled when Ollie Watkins cut in and slammed a shot into the top corner on 22 minutes.

Mohamed Salah's smart shot reduced the deficit on 33 minutes but two minutes later, John McGinn's deflected effort restored Villa's two-goal cushion. Watkins' header made the score 4-1 and 10 minutes after half-time, Ross Barkley added a fifth. Salah later pulled another goal back on the hour but Jack Grealish's double on 66 and 75 minutes completed the comprehensive victory.

Man United 1 - 6 Tottenham - Worst day as manager - Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

  • Worst day as manager - Ole Gunnar SolskjaerManchester United were hung up to dry during their 6-1 humiliation against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon.

  • Kane and Son run riot after Martial’s red card in United’s equal-worst Premier League defeat

  • Most definitely, the worst performance since Sir Alex Ferguson retired seven long years ago.

The result was a shambles from Manchester United, absolute shambles.

Nobody could have predicted the lowest of lows coming in the form of the annihilation of Man United by Spurs that can only be matched by Manchester City's famous win by the same scoreline in 2011. It was a dreadful result at Old Trafford that will be talked about for years and decades to come, compounding what has already been a tumultuous start to the season for the Red Devils.

The Red Devils took a one-minute lead with a penalty goal from Bruno Fernandes, only to go 4-1 down by half-time. Son Heung-min continued his impeccable form with a brace, while Tanguy Ndombele profited from a dreadful harry Maguire error to score and Harry Kane also found the net.

Mourinho at his best vs Man United

Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur have NOW Scored 13 in their last two games.

What makes the thrashing all the more painful for Manchester United fans is the fact that it came against their last manager, Jose Mourinho, who no doubt will have been delighted with Spurs' masterclass. In fact, the 'Special One' appeared to be in the form of his life with both his behavior at full-time and when the interviews started tumbling in.

Jose Mourinho went viral after the match with many fans thinking that he was being a 's***house' by way of patting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on the head when they went to exchange handshakes. You've got to admit, the facial expression from Mourinho towards the camera suggests the cheeky tap of the scalp wasn't entirely innocent

The defeat brings with it a number of unwanted stats for United:

  • Their joint-heaviest defeat in the Premier League - losing by five goals for the fourth time in the competition, and for the first time since a 6-1 defeat by Manchester City in October 2011.

  • Defeat in their first two home games of a league campaign for just the fifth time in the club's history, with 1986/87 being the previous occasion.

  • Conceding six goals in a single Premier League game for only the third time - with each coming in October (1996 v Southampton, 2011 v Man City, today v Spurs).

  • Tottenham become the first visiting side to score four first-half goals in a league game away at Manchester United since Spurs themselves also did so in November 1957 in a 4-3 win.
