Marcus Rashford scored twice for Manchester United as they beat Tottenham 2-1 to leave Jose Mourinho with hardly a penny on his arrival to Old Trafford.

Rashford struck from the get-go in the primary half, before the hosts were pegged pack before the break by a heavenly Dele Alli goal. Marcus Rashford then changed over the champ not long after the break from a punishment he won himself to facilitate a portion of the weight on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The outcome lifted United up to 6th in the table, but eight points behind Chelsea in fourth. While Spurs were baffling for a large portion of the Premier League conflict – drop to eighth.

Marcus Rashford

It was an enormous assurance boosting execution from United and for Solskjaer, which will stand them in extraordinary stead in front of the Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday evening, which is live on Sky Sports Premier League.

It took only six minutes for United to lead the pack and it came in to some degree sharp style, as Davinson Sanchez dawdled on the ball for a really long time and Jesse Lingard picked his pocket before discovering Rashford.

The England striker at that point contracted Paolo Gazzaniga bug with a close post drive from the left-hand corner of the 18-yard box, which the Spurs goalkeeper ought to have improved.

Gazzaniga redeemed himself, be that as it may, with three fine spares as United pushed for a second. The first following 23 minutes to deny Mason Greenwood from short proximity, the second and third quickly a short time later from Rashford, as he tipped a 30-yard piledriver onto the bar, at that point pushed a twisting exertion from simply inside the case wide.

Joined would pay for those botched chances as Spurs leveled in noteworthy style in the blink of an eye before the break. Alli has been in fine structure since the appearance of Mourinho and his completion was terrific, vintage stuff from the midfielder.

The ball landed in his way with his back to goal from a David de Gea spare, however in two smooth developments, he flicked it more than two protectors, turned, and afterward completed past the Spaniard. Joined basically had no opportunity to respond to his snapshot of splendor.

United were back in front. Moussa Sissoko stumbled Rashford into the crate. He stepped up himself to send Gazzaniga the incorrect route with what demonstrated to be the champ.

Maybe Manchester United ought to organize Mourinho to be in the resistance burrow for each game in light of the fact that was their best execution of the period.

Maybe the main analysis on a powerful night when the supervisor’s name was completely sung was United’s failure to add to their two goals, however, the manner in which you take a gander at it there was an undoubted improvement.


Joined had vitality and battle and in Rashford the best player on the pitch, his certainty and aspiration contaminating people around him as Spurs were ended on pretty much every event.

Victor Lindelof crying at Harry Maguire in the 93rd moment revealed to you exactly the amount it intended to United to make this their fifth Premier League win.

So does that mean the Manchester Derby is currently a free hit for Manchester United? As one of the sages of the North West press pack amended me, “Manchester United ought to never require free hits”. Ole stays in the driver’s seat and remembering his contrary number he’ll have appreciated this turn.

A splendid presentation from the United striker. He looked resolved to demonstrate a point in a No 9 job during Mourinho’s arrival to Old Trafford. His first goal may have been somewhat lucky yet he tired Tottenham out throughout the night.
