Marcus Rashford was the main man Wednesday night; scoring twice as he ensured Jose Mourinho left Old Trafford empty-handed on his first return to Manchester United since he was sacked by the club just under a year ago.
The England striker found the back of the net either side of Dele Alli’s magnificent individual effort to earn United a 2-1 win over Tottenham, and inflict Mourinho’s first defeat since he replaced Mauricio Pochettino in the Spurs dugout last month.
Less than ten minutes into the game, Rashford picked up a loose ball; beating Spurs goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga low at his near post.
Though United were dominating the proceedings after taking the lead, the Red Devils failed to take full advantage of their dominance, and a moment of magic from Alli saw the sides go into the break on level terms.
United emerged from the half time break back on the front foot, and within three minutes Rashford had restored the lead from the spot after being brought down by a clumsy Moussa Sissoko challenge.
Both teams had decent chances later on but there were no more goals for neither side.
