A Kyle Walker own goal gave Manchester United the lead in the first half at Old Trafford.
Tottenham had started well, keeping possession and pressing United’s defence effectively.
Typically, the home opened the scoring. Nabil Bentaleb’s stray pass was taken advantage of by Ashley Young, who found Wayne Rooney in the box; Walker inadvertently passed the ball into his own net attempting to tackle the striker.
United controlled the majority of the half after that, but Spurs regained a bit of confidence just before the break.
