Nuno hangs his head. This has ultimately been a pitiful display by Tottenham. Nuno’s coat, a mere ten games into his Premier League career with Spurs, is already on a shoogly peg.
As Spurs pass the ball around the back, the stadium reverberates to loud booing. Nuno is getting the proper bird here. The fans are extremely unimpressed with their new manager, who is now holding the Crisis Baton that his opposite number turned up with.
Bergwijn and Kane, in almost exactly the same positions on the pitch, attempt to recreate United’s opening goal. Bergwijn gets the Fernandes cross right, but Kane opts to trap rather than volley, and the chance is gone. He forces a corner, but that comes to nought.
Cavani attempts a backpass down the Spurs right. Kane reads and intercepts. He races clear down the right, but there’s nobody in the middle. He doesn’t have the pace to burst into the box himself, and so dinks an aimless ball to nobody in particular. United clear; the crowd jeer.
Son miscontrols in the centre circle. Matic rolls a ball down the middle of the park. Rashford springs what’s left of Tottenham’s defence, opens his body, and steers a sidefoot across Lloris and into the bottom right. The Tottenham boos outweigh the United celebrations.
