Highlights and all goals of Tottenham vs. Manchester United
- Title : Highlights and all goals of Tottenham vs. Manchester United
Manchester United have also demonstrated their strength away from home at Tottenham and increased the pressure on ex-coach José Mourinho. It had an unpleasant premiere.
Manchester United drew level with Manchester City on points on Sunday - but only in the away table, in which the record champions are not even fooled by the sovereign Premier League leaders. With the 3-1 win at Tottenham Hotspur, United expanded their streak to 23 away games without defeat and returned the favor for the 1: 6 clap in the first leg.
José Mourinho didn't want to know anything about that duel on matchday four before they met again, but should have been reminded of it soon. If Martial flew off the field in the 28th minute, this time it could have caught McTominay in the 34th minute. It was the most contentious scene of the heated, but lacking chance first round: Cavani had scored for the supposed United leadership, but referee Chris Kavanagh recognized a previous foul by McTominay in the review area. The already yellow-warned six had hit Son in the face and was lucky that he did not see yellow-red afterwards.
Son refines a strong attack - only then does ManUnited get going
Son "took revenge" in another way: After a strong attack via Ndombelé, Kane and Lucas Moura, the recovered starting XI returned on the other side - it was the only shot on one of the goals before the break. But then what happened so often this season happened: Tottenham failed to take a lead and United turned a deficit.
The clearly improved record champions equalized because Fred suddenly discovered his playmaker skills with a double pass in front of the penalty area and, after Llori's parade against Cavani, also his scoring skills (57th). Henderson, who had again been preferred to de Gea in the league, prevented the renewed deficit with a foot defense against Son (60th), Lloris the 1: 2 with a dream save against Bruno Fernandes' long shot (63rd). And the very good mood Pogba got stuck with a daring heel from close range (67.)
But then United struck deservedly. After Bruno Fernandes' tunnel against Reguilon, Greenwood, who had been substituted seven minutes earlier, quickly crossed to Cavani, who executed a diving header (79th) - before hitting the post of his own housing on the other side after a corner while attempting to rescue (85th). It was only in the sixth and last minute of stoppage time that the spectacle that had developed in the second round was decided when Pogba Greenwood put on the 3-1 final score.
