Reds claim late 3-2 victory at Old Trafford as they finish sixth and Spurs confirm safety in Division 1

Josh Harrop struck twice late on to complete his hat-trick and give Manchester United a 3-2 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford.

First-team manager Jose Mourinho watched on as United secured sixth place, while Spurs' safety was confirmed at Reading as they avoided a heavy defeat.

Harrop gave United a 37th minute lead after good work by Matthew Olosunde but goals from Jaden Brown and Samuel Shashoua within the first five minutes of the second half put Spurs 2-1 up.

Harrop had the final word as he equalised with a left-footed shot in the 79th minute before hitting the winner, and his third, from close range three minutes from time.

The win took last season's champions United up to sixth in the table, while Spurs finished tenth, level on points with relegated Reading but safe with a superior goal difference.
