Tottenham hotspurs says bye to the White Hart Lane in a special manner after authoritatively overcoming struggling Manchester United by two goals to one.
Much as Spurs had several chances presented to Dele Alli, Harry Kane, and Son to score as many goals, only two were taken advantage of as Kenyan international Victor Wanyama first accessed the net as early as six minutes.
Ben Davies following a corner assisted the 25-year-old midfielder to head from a very close range to the center of the goal as the host took the first lead.
Meanwhile, Cristian Ericksen’s cross from a set piece changed direction to the net from a slight touch by English striker Kane.
Wayne Rooney, jabbed Anthony Martial’s nice cross to secure United’s effort however lack of serious attack from the visitors in the remaining minutes gave the hosts all the right to be winners of the match.
Losing to Spurs means The Red Devils have no chance of finishing at the top four but still have another route to the Champions League on condition that they beat Ajax in the Europa finals in the night of Wednesday 24th May 2017.
Based on what Jose Mourinho said, they seem to be much interested in the Europa League and Optimistic to win the cup than fighting to win the remaining matches in the English Premier League.
“The most important thing for us now is having one less match to play. We have only one match to play and that’s not in the Premier League.” Stated Mourinho
