Jose Mourihno’s winning start as Tottenham manager ended as Marcus Rashford scorer twice to beat the Spurs 2-1 on Wednesday night at Old Trafford.
The England forward scored the opening goal in the sixth minute of the match after he shot past Tottenham keeper Paulo Gazzaniga.
Dele Alli responded with a brilliant goal for the Spurs just before half time.
Manchester United lost a lot of chances to score in the first half but another opportunity came in the early second half when the hosts were granted a penalty after a long VAR check. Rashford took the penalty and re-established a 2-1 lead against the visitors.
Although Rashford hasn’t been able to score a hat-trick for United like Robin van Persie in 2013, he now has 12 goals in 13 games for club and country.
As expected, Mourihno was well received at Old Trafford as he still has many fans despite his dismal performance as United manager.
But it was nothing compared to the reception Solksjaer had as a song started in his honour as he emerged last from the tunnel before the game.
United’s victory against Tottenham now put them in the sixth position from tenth with 21 points.
