Sunday afternoon’s fixture for Tottenham Hotspur saw them walk out at Wembley Stadium against Manchester United.

It was always going to be a tight encounter and Marcus Rashford’s late first half goal was enough to decide the points in the end as caretaker gaffer Ole Gunnar Solskjaer kept his own remarkable winning streak going since he replaced Jose Mourinho.

Spurs failed to do only one thing in the game though, and that was score. We dominated possession, chances overall and efforts on target but a resilient United held on for victory.

There will be plenty of disappointment following the game, especially as we slip to back to back ‘home’ defeats but sometimes you get days like this and you simply have to tip your hat to goalkeeper David de Gea who was in inspired form as we put the pressure on.

Play like that and we’ll soon be back to winning ways, so disappointment – yes. A need to overreact – no.
