Manchester United’s 9-0 win over Southampton was a night to forget for the the away side.

The miserable match for them was set in motion by a red card in the second minute.

Teenage defender Alex Jankewitz was sent off on his first ever start after a shocking tackle on Scott McTominay.

A depleted Southampton were thrashed 9-0 by a ruthless Manchester United – and Jankewitz never played the the Saints again.

Just when he thought he was out…

Jankewitz, 19, was sold by Southampton in the summer for a new start, and signed for Swiss side Young Boys.

Now after the Champions League draw, Jankewitz faces the prospect of a return to Old Trafford.

Young Boys have been drawn in the Champions League Group F along with Manchester United and Villarreal.

Jankewitz has made one appearance for Young Boys since signing for the club in July.

 

The Swiss side would be right to have concerns about starting him at Old Trafford after his last experience.

If he does play, lasting over two minutes from the opening kick-off will be an improvement on his last showing.

United history with Young Boys

Manchester United last faced Young Boys in the 2019 group stages.

United beat them comfortably away from home, winning 3-0 on a night Diogo Dalot made his debut for the club.

Paul Pogba scored twice, including one penalty, with Anthony Martial scoring a third.

The second game at Old Trafford was more tense, with Paul Pogba left on the bench.

United won 1-0 thanks to an injury time Marouane Fellaini goal, which was memorable for Jose Mourinho furiously throwing a crate of water bottles on the touchline as he celebrated the late winner.
