Tottenham exploded into life with twenty minutes to go against Manchester United, scoring three quick goals and moving back within seven points of leaders Leicester City.

The hosts were just about the better team until the deadlock was broken. From then on Mauricio Pochettino’s side were emphatic, bagging three goals in six minutes.

Dele Alli opened the scoring before Toby Alderweireld’s quick fire second. Erik Lamela netted Spurs’ third to ensure a first league win against United at home in fifteen years.

Here’s how Twitter reacted the result and performance.


  1. I am a lifelong Spurs fan although living in Canada now. What a great day. I have watched videos of the goals at least 20 times, it must have been wonderful to be there. One of the real pleasures is now reading the Utd fans comments after the last week where all I saw were statements from their players how they were going to walk all over us. Gary Lineker has it correct. If we can hold on to the players and the manager the future is ours.
