Manchester United vs Tottenham 2 – 0 Premier League Extended Highlights Video
Manchester United beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 at Old Trafford in the Premier League. This was their third straight clean sheet.Erik Ten Hag’s time as Manchester United manager has been marred by losses to Brentford and Manchester City. However, the Red Devils have shown signs of a brighter future since the Dutchman took over.
The first half of this match showed that, as the home team was in charge the whole time. Hugo Lloris’s first save was a mistake he made when Antony shot at him, but after that, the Frenchman was in charge.
Fred, Marcus Rashford (twice), and Luke Shaw all tried to score, but Spurs’ number one kept them out.
The two times they did score, Casemiro’s shot went just wide of the post, and Antony’s curling shot hit the bottom of the post. The visitors, on the other hand, were safe going forward and didn’t create any major risks.
The team of Antonio Conte was lucky not to be behind at halftime, but they were soon behind again after the break. In fact, it took less than two minutes for Fred’s shot that was deflected by Ben Davies to get past Lloris and into the bottom corner.
Even though Tottenham was behind, they didn’t do much going forward as United pushed for a second goal, which they got halfway through the half.
Again, Lloris couldn’t do much as Bruno Fernandes’s curling shot from the edge of the box went into the top corner. In the last ten minutes, the Portugal player almost scored again, but he was called offside after going around Lloris and putting the ball in.
Even though Ten Hag has led United to wins over Liverpool and Arsenal, he will be especially happy with how this win went because his team never gave up control.
The victory is also important because it is the first time since 2010 that the 20-time English champions have won their last four games against the Londoners.
Spurs have had a good start to the season so far, but this game shows how limited they are and should put an end to any talk that they could challenge for the title.
