Midfielder opens scoring as Luke Shaw features for 90 minutes but United lose 3-0 at Lamex Stadium

Marcus Edwards set Tottenham Hotspur on their way to a first victory of the Division 1 season, beating Manchester United 3-0 at the Lamex Stadium.

Luke Shaw continued his return to fitness, playing the full 90 minutes for United, for whom striker James Wilson, also making his comeback, lasted 78 minutes.

Edwards' 20-yard curled shot (pictured above) opened the scoring in the 11th minute and 60 seconds later it was 2-0 as Japhet Tanganga powered in a header.

Spurs made it 3-0 on 25 minutes when Shaw was dispossessed and Joe Pritchard provided a clever finish.

United started to control the game in the second half but could not convert it into goals.

They next face Arsenal on 8 September while Spurs travel to Everton on 11 September.
