Despite winning the possession battle in the first half at Old Trafford, Tottenham fell behind to a Henrikh Mkhitaryan goal as Manchester United finally put away one of their numerous chances.
Paul Pogba had come closest for United in the opening stages, forcing Hugo Lloris into a low save inside three minutes.
The hosts eventually took the lead before the break when Harry Kane gave the ball away in midfield. Ander Herrera took advantage and played through Mkhitaryan, who smashed the ball past Lloris in the Spurs goal.
