Quick-fire 11-second goal lifts Tottenham past Man Utd

Share

Spurs are now just five points behind United, who remain second, and are two behind Liverpool and Chelsea in third and fourth respectively.

"The first goal is an accumulation of mistakes despite of the fact that everything happened so fast".

"The kid is having a hell of an experience at every level so there is an unbelievable future waiting for him, and being surrounded by these players can only help him", Mourinho said ahead of today's Premier League clash at Tottenham Hotspur. We tell the young players to always anticipate.

United went into the contest without conceding a goal in 2018, but it took just 11 seconds for that run to come to an end.

Jose Mourinho finally lost his temper midway through the second half, his side once again cut open by an effervescent Spurs side, and many interpreted his hooking of Fellaini as a symptom of his growing chagrin.

Mourinho threw on Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini in the 63rd minute but bizarrely took Fellaini off just seven minutes later, replacing him with Ander Herrera. They created a few chances - the best fell to Son, who shot from a narrow angle when he probably should have passed to Kane - but they didn't need to play with the intensity that served them so well in the opening 45 minutes, despite Kane's numerous speculative attempts to grab his 100th goal for the club. Continually he has the same injury - the lateral (knee) ligament'. "We're sure he's going to help us", Pochettino told the BBC.

The Portuguese said: 'Spurs are one of the top teams in the country - not a title contender because they are too far away, but I say honestly they are a Champions League contender. "He plays every game - starting or coming from the bench as a striker, as a left winger, as a right winger", Mourinho added.

'We deserve a lot of praise but the most important thing now is to keep consistent'.

"Our aim is to be focused from the beginning".

Much is made of Mauricio Pochettino's failure to win a trophy during his Tottenham tenure, and rightly so when you consider Arsene Wenger has won the FA Cup three times in the past four seasons. It was the best 45-minute display from Spurs here since they beat Real Madrid in November and a thrilling way to introduce Lucas Moura, the club's £25m recruit from Paris Saint-Germain, to his new team.
