Harry Kane on the win – “We took our chances, it was all about staying focused, we did feel really good before the game. Sonny is doing great, we are taking advantage of being ruthless.”
The second half was more of the same as Serge Aurier and Kane netted one each and Spurs stormed to a commanding win.

87′ Jose Mourinho is minutes away from sealing his first win in eight away fixtures against teams he has previously managed. The Portuguese tactician mist be mighty pleased with his side’s show this evening.
84′ Luke Shaw goes into the book for a cynical tackle on Moura. Spurs now have a free-kick from a goal-scoring position. Reguillon curls it goalwards, but Pogba clears it.
81′ This is just going from bad to worse for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The side has not managed to make any big signings in the transfer window (other than Van de Beek) and this evening’s defeat is only going to make matters all the more difficult for him. Surprisingly though, he says his
79′ Kane finds the back of net, Spurs lead 6-1. De Gea goes the right way but can’t stop it as Kane bags his second goal of the evening.
78′ Penalty to Spurs! Davies is brought down by Pogba and Kane has a chance to make it 6-1.
Former Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher on the Martial sending off -“Two yellow cards would’ve sufficed.” What’s your take on this? Have your say here –
75′ What would you do if you were in Solskjaer’s shoes? Would you tell your men to go ahead search of a goal, or sit back and ensure you don’t concede any more goals?
73′ That will be Son’s last contribution as he makes way for Ben Davies.
71′ Another poor pass from a United defender and it almost leads to a goal. Fred make a lazy pass towards McTominay, but Spurs steal the ball. Son threads it for Kane, who gallops into the box before firing a low drive. De Gea is up to the task this time around.
69′ Jose Mourinho makes a change as well as Ndombele is replaced by Dele Alli. Speaking of Alli, his future at Spurs is a matter of discussion as PSG seems keen to sign him. Keep up with all the transfer window developments here:

It’s all happening here at Old Trafford. Fernandes gave United the dream start by scoring in the second minute, but its all gone downhill for the home side since. Son Heung-min struck a brace and Harry Kane and Ndomnbele scored one each to hand Spurs a 4-1 lead at half-time. Oh, and United will play the remainder of the game with 10 men after Anthony Martial was sent off. Half time score – Spurs lead Manchester United 4-1.
45+2′ How close was that?! Kane’s header, off Son’s corner, floats just wide. Kane’s marker, Wan Bissaka, is caught napping.
45+1′ Aurier’s scorching attempt flashes just wide of the goal. Tense moments for the United defence. Three minutes to be added on.
42′ There’s virtually nothing going Manchester United’s way at the moment. Each of its attacks have been thwarted and the defense looks sloppy at best.
39′ This is the first time Manchester United has conceded four goals in the first half of a Premier League. Spurs on a roll!
37′ Son bags another one, Spurs lead 4-1! Aurier plays it for Son in the box and the South Korean clips it between De Gea’s legs to extend Spurs’ lead.
35′ United’s defence was looking flimsy throughout and Martial’s sending off has deepened the home side’s defensive woes.
31′ Bailly makes a poor pass and Spurs capitalise. Son receives the ball, squares it for Kane, and the ball finds the back of the net.
31′ Kane makes it 3-1 to Spurs. Son sets it up for Kane and the Englishman makes no mistake as he slots it home.
30′ Lamela was shown a yellow card.
29′ RED CARD – Martial is sent off. Lamela lifts his arm into Martial’s chin and United forward merely does the same but is sent off.
27′ De Gea does really well to deny Aurier from close range and produces another strong save to block Ndombele fierce strike.
25′ What a chance for Son! Lamela plays a peach of a lob and Son, from well inside his half, races towards goal. But his final touch lets him down and De Gea manages to collect the ball.
23′ Sharp move from Greenwood. The youngster twists and turns before firing a strike towards the bottom corner, but drags it just wide. Not sure if Lloris saw a lot of that….
20′ Fernandes sets up Rashford with a delicious through-ball and the latter does really well to get a shot off, but is denies by the post. Oh and the offside flag us up. A good-looking move for United nevertheless.
17′ The United defence continues to scramble to keep the Spurs attack at bay. Incidentally, this is the earliest Manchester United has conceded two goals in a Premier League match since October 2015 vs Arsenal, exactly five years ago today.
14′ Kane lets one rip from outside the box, but its well blocked. Spurs mounting all sorts of pressure on this jumpy United defence.

10′ Neither team has had a chance to catch their breath so far and neither have we! Ten minutes, three goals and Spurs lead 2-1 away to Manchester United.

7′ Son puts Spurs ahead! The goal rush continues and Son Heung Min makes a fine run and finishes it with a cool dink to Spurs a 2-1 lead.
5′ What a start to this clash – two goals in four minutes!
4′ Equaliser! Ndombele brings Spurs back on level terms with a close-range finish. Harry Maguire makes an awful defensive header and Ndombele latches onto the loose ball to equalise.
2′ Fernandes scores from the spot, Manchester United leads 1-0. Bruno Fernandes slots the ball into the bottom corner to give his side the perfect start to the match.
1′ PENALTY TO UNITED in the 29th second! Martial is brought down by Sanchez in the box and the referee points to the spot.
8:57pm: Right then, the players are on the pitch and we are minutes away from action. Sit tight, for this promises to be a fine contest.
8:50pm: Sergio Reguilon is all set to make his Tottenham Hotspur debut today. Reguilon, who spent last season on loan at Sevilla, joined Spurs for a reported fee of 30 million euros.
