Scott McTominay made history in the Premier League following Manchester United’s 6-2 thrashing of old foes Leeds United at Old Trafford on Sunday.
McTominay bagged a brace in the game and is the first player in Premier League history to score twice in the first three minutes of a match.
United are now unbeaten in their last 16 home league games against Leeds since a 0-1 loss in February 1981.
United moved third, five points off leaders Liverpool with a game in hand, while Leeds are 14th in the league table, having conceded 30 goals in 14 games.
McTominay got United started with barely a minute on the clock with a low, long-range effort, and the midfielder got his second within three minutes with a neat finish inside the box.
Bruno Fernandes lashed United three ahead on 20 minutes through a narrow gap from 12 yards.
Leeds conceded four goals for the fourth time already this season as Victor Lindelof converted at the far post in the 37th minute after Anthony Martial flicked on a corner.
Leeds pulled one back on 42 minutes through Liam Cooper’s header from their own corner.
United regained their four-goal lead in the 66th minute as Daniel James shot through the legs of Illan Meslier following a counter-attack.
Fernandes’ penalty made it 6-1 with 20 minutes left in the game after Pascal Struijk fouled Martial.
In the 73rd minute Stuart Dallas curled a beauty into the top right corner for 6-2 sandwiched in-between several guilt-edged chances at both ends.
