Jose Mourinho’s winning start to life as Tottenham Head Coach came to an end after his side were beaten 2-1 by his former side Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Marcus Rashford put United ahead early in the first-half before Dele Alli continued his excellent goalscoring form with a wonderful individual effort just before the interval. But Rashford scored from the penalty spot seconds after half-time to earn United the points.

Here’s how every Spurs player rated on the day.

Paulo Gazzaniga, 5 – Made a few big saves, including one stunner from Rashford, but should have saved his opener.

Serge Aurier, 6 – Arguably Tottenham’s best player on the day. Provided a good outlet down the right and was heavily involved in Alli’s equaliser.

Davinson Sanchez, 4 – Should have done more for the opener and his passing was off all night.

Toby Alderweireld, 5 – Better than Sanchez, but not by much.

Jan Vertonghen, 4 – Unable to build off his showing on Saturday and massively struggled against the pace of Daniel James.

Harry Winks, 4 – Careless in possession and was deservedly hooked.

Moussa Sissoko, 4 – Looked like the old Moussa Sissoko, epitomised by a needless foul to concede a penalty on Rashford which led to the winner.

Dele Alli, 6 – Relatively quiet, besides a moment of magic that briefly restored parity for Spurs, but was unable to get into the game.

Lucas Moura 4 – Unable to provide a repeat of his last Old Trafford performance. Saw plenty of the ball early on, but his decision making was terrible.

Son Heung-min, 3 – Hardly involved until the latter stages, but his end product was poor.

Harry Kane, 2 – One of his worst performances in a Spurs shirt. Horrendous.


Christian Eriksen 3 – Couldn’t get into the game.

Tanguy Ndombele N/A – Sloppy.

Giovani Lo Celso N/A – Not enough time.



  1. Stupid comment on Sissoko. The penalty was soft. It was not even a tackle. He was shielding the ball. If the ref dont give it VAR would not as well.
