Manchester United 1-0 Tottenham | United keep tabs with city rivals [Video]

Manchester United pulled off a slim win over Mauricio Pochettino's men earlier today as Anthony Martial came on late to score the only goal of the match. The former Southampton manager has now lost 10 times to Mourinho.

Jose Mourinho's men looked good going forward in the second half after a slow start in the game, the portuguese started the game with Rashford and Lukaku upfront as he played two strikers against the prediction of the media who thought the former Chelsea manager will adopt a defensive tactics.

Though the first half was boring in the first half, but it got better in the second half despite the heavy rain. Romelu Lukaku almost scored in the game as he jumped highest to a cross but his attempt came of the goal post, minutes later the belgian striker was on hand to flick on De Gea's goal kick, Tottenham Eric Dier was not aware of the on rushing Martial who was calm under pressure to slow the ball past his fellow countryman Hugo Lloris.

Pochettino's men lacked a cutting edge and a focal point due to the absence of the injured Harry Kane, Son was deployed to play in his position but the South Korean forward struggled all game against the back three of Bailly, Phil Jones and Smalling. Pochettino introduced Llorente in the second half, but the Spanish forward seems to lack match fitness as he couldn't get into the rhythm of the game.

England midfielder, Dele Alli had a glorious opportunity as he missed the goal with a poor touch despite his brilliant run to connect to Eriksen's brillaint through ball.

Manchester United are now 2 points behind their city rivals, Manchester city are playing away at Westbrom in few minutes and could take their lead on the table back to 5 points with a win.
