Tottenham vs Man Utd Match Summary and Highlights

Tottenham picked up a first home victory over Manchester United after more than five years, as manager Ange Postecoglou witnessed his team produce a solid performance. After an even first half in which both teams had some decent chances, Tottenham were clearly the better team in the second half and they clearly deserved the victory. Manchester United lacked the finishing touch in the first half as they miss some decent opportunities, but manager Erik ten Hag was clearly disappointed with his team’s lacklustre performance in the second.

United have plenty of problems and they have clearly not started the season on the front foot after two lacklustre performances. Spurs will be delighted after picking up the first win of the season and they are up and running.

Man of the Match: Yves Bissouma

Yves Bissouma struggled for game time under Antonio Conte but he provided a brilliant display of his quality. The Mali international was able to dominate things from the centre of the park. He barely put a foot wrong and United simply had no answers for the powerful midfield presence of the 26-year-old.
