Tottenham Hotspur 2 – 0 Manchester United [Premier League] Highlights 2017/18

Manchester United’s unbeaten run ended in meek fashion against Tottenham, allowing Manchester City to pull further ahead.

Christian Eriksen scored after just 11 seconds as Tottenham ended Manchester United’s unbeaten run in 2018 with a 2-0 victory at Wembley on Wednesday.Tottenham Hotspur 2 – 0 Manchester United [Premier League] Highlights 2017/18

The Denmark star capitalised on poor defending straight from kick-off in the first half before a dreadful own goal from Phil Jones doubled Spurs’ lead before the break to seal the win.

The result ends United’s eight-match unbeaten league run and sees them fall 15 points behind leaders Manchester City, who beat West Brom 3-0 at the Etihad Stadium.

Eriksen scored the fastest goal ever conceded by United in the Premier League when he pounced on the visitors’ failure to clear a simple long ball.

Jose Mourinho’s side, in which Alexis Sanchez was making his first league start since his move from Arsenal, had a bright spell thereafter but went two down before the break when Jones turned in Kieran Trippier’s cross.

New signing Lucas Moura was presented to the 81,978 fans – a record in the Premier League –  at the interval and the party atmosphere largely continued for the rest of the match, with United offering meek resistance against a Spurs side held by Newport County in the FA Cup last Saturday.

Indeed, it could have been much worse had fifth-placed Spurs made the most of second-half openings, and there is likely to be a lengthy inquest into the manner of United’s defeat before Huddersfield Town’s visit this weekend.
