Man United's incredible defensive record at Old Trafford following Spurs shutout

Manchester United's win lifted them up to second place in the table and two points behind leaders Manchester City, who face West Brom later on Saturday.

Moussa Sissoko and Harry Winks were handed starts in midfield while Eric Dier slotted in to the back three and Heung-min Son led the line, but did any of Pochettino's players impress?

And Mourinho maintains the lack of hunger which blighted United's shock 2-1 defeat at promoted Huddersfield last weekend was a one-off.

Mourinho's introduction of Anthony Martial in the 70th minute, proved to be a masterstroke, as the France worldwide netted the victor with 10 minutes left.

The first big chance of the game came when Hugo Lloris spilled a tame Henrikh Mkhitaryan into the path of Rashford.

But Malthe said when she got there, he instead asked her to engage in a threesome with him and another woman. Police in Los Angeles, New York and London have opened criminal investigations.

'The manager tried to give us a chance, so we have to score and give assists'. It was unlucky that in the last 10 minutes we conceded our goal.

It should have been a routine stop for the Spurs skipper, but he spilled the ball into a risky area and needed Ben Davies on hand to deny Rashford a simple tap-in on the rebound, before Romelu Lukaku also narrowly missed out on turning a low cross home from close range seconds later.

Dele Alli could not turn in Christian Eriksen's chip behind from close range on 77 minutes, while a minute later Romelu Lukaku headed against a post at the other end.

It did not prove to be a costly miss, however, as United held out for their eighth consecutive home win across all competitions - their best run of form at Old Trafford since 2012-13.
