Anthony Martial ended his eight-game goal drought when he lashed home from close range in the 69th minute.

The goals kept coming as Scott McTominay netted before Bruno Fernandes’ penalty after Bednarek was sent off.

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl added: “It was a stupid foul from the young lad (Jankewitz) and kills everything. What can I say? It’s horrible.”
