Manchester United v Tottenham Hotspur

Substitute strikes with nine minutes remaining to earn 1-0 victory at Old Trafford

Anthony Martial came off the bench to earn Manchester United their first Premier League win in three matches, beating Tottenham Hotspur 1-0.

After a tight first half at Old Trafford, the match came to life in the 54th minute when Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s shot was parried by Hugo Lloris and Ben Davies denied Marcus Rashford.

Spurs, without Harry Kane, struggled against United’s three-man defence.

Dele Alli could not turn in Christian Eriksen’s chip behind from close range on 77 minutes, while a minute later Romelu Lukaku headed against a post at the other end.

With nine minutes remaining Martial latched on to Lukaku’s flick-on to score.

The win moved United three points ahead of Spurs in second.
