Manchester United eked out an important 1-0 win over Tottenham on Saturday, thanks to a late Anthony Martial winner.

Jose Mourinho looked set to be ridiculed again for his defensive mentality as Manchester United headed towards another 0-0 result against a big side, despite Tottenham not having Harry Kane at their disposal. But, Anthony Martial, who came on for Marcus Rashford, converted from a Romelu Lukaku glancing header to hand United the lead and all three points.

People hailed Romelu Lukaku for the performance, who despite not being on the scoresheet, was influential on the day. The Belgian struck the post once and was the creator for Martial’s winner. But, it was the Frenchman who stole the headlines with the winner – another timely reminder of his talent.

The man in limelight, as ever, was Jose Mourinho, whose tactical plan worked brilliantly as Tottenham failed to be much of a threat going forward. And the goal was the cherry on the top along with another clean sheet in the bag for David De Gea & co.
