Tottenham Hotspur defeated Manchester United 2-0 in the Premier League thanks to goals in the second half from Pape Sarr and substitute Ben Davies.
Sarr, who was brought on in place of Oliver Skipp during Tottenham’s opening 2-2 draw against Brentford, saw his cross deflected against the post soon before halftime after Pedro Porro blasted against the same upright.
Dejan Kulusevski was given room to cross from the United left four minutes into the second period, and his pass hit Lisandro Martinez before dropping for Sarr to drive high into the net.
Antony almost found an instant equaliser when he rattled the post on the end of pass from Bruno Fernandes, who spurned a glorious headed opportunity from six yards out when the game was goalless.
United thought they should have had a penalty during the first half when Alejandro Garnacho’s shot struck Cristian Romero’s arm but a VAR review concluded with no offence found.
And their misery was complete seven minutes from time when Davies scuffed home a cross from fellow sub Ivan Perisic to crown the latest flowing move from Ange Postecoglou’s men.
