Tottenham Hotspur knew they were welcoming an in form Manchester United to Wembley Stadium on Sunday afternoon for our Premier League clash.

United have given caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer a 100% win record since he replaced Jose Mourinho, and luck was certainly with them on Sunday as they took a narrow and lucky 1-0 victory.

Despite dominating possession and chances David de Gea was in inspired form between the sticks and statistics website Whoscored recognised that by giving him their star man rating and the only nine rating on the day.

Spurs’ scores saw goalkeeper Hugo Lloris take our Man of the Match with 8.01 and he was followed by Kieran Trippier (7.37), Harry Kane (7.15), Christian Eriksen (6.93) and Son Heung-Min (6.78) to complete our top five best performers on the day.

The ratings I think show that despite our control on the game, we just lacked that killer spark in the final third to make it count.

  • Trippier gives the ball away which leads to United’s goal yet he’s second in the match ratings? You were watching a different game from me. I expect you thought United’s worst player was David de Gea.
