Manchester United 0-3 Tottenham Hotspur: Visitors end Old Trafford hoodoo in style to pile pressure on Jose Mourinho
Tottenham finally won at Old Trafford as a stunning second half display piled the pressure on Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.
The game was decided in three dramatic minutes. Harry Kane’s perfectly placed header in the 50th minute came just 132 seconds before Lucas Moura doubled the visitors’ lead.
And despite plenty of United pressure, Moura added a brilliant third for Spurs late on, beating Chris Smalling before firing a powerful strike past David De Gea.
It brings an emphatic end to five straight defeats at Old Trafford for the north Londoners, who continued their perfect start to the Premier League season with their biggest away win against United for 46 years.
It looks considerably gloomier for a United and Mourinho after a second defeat in as many games, both in which they have conceded three goals through sloppy defending.
The unrelenting noise surrounding his negative impact at the club will only grow louder.
In the absence of Heung-Min Son, Moura has proved his worth with three goals in two games.
Not only that, he was the game’s most dangerous and influential player in the goalless first-half, too.
Moment of the match
Romelu Lukaku somehow found the time to spurn a glorious chance in between the two Tottenham goals.
It could’ve been so different if that found the bottom corner.
