Man Utd won the crucial match in a one-sided match, when the home team finished three times more than their opponent (28 compared to 9).

Man Utd prepared carefully for the match, when the whole team arrived at Old Trafford four hours before kick-off time, two hours earlier than usual.

Man Utd had the best performance since the beginning of the season.

Tottenham only rose up at the end of the first half, and created a controversial situation.

Man Utd finally converted the opportunity into a goal early in the second half, with the 20th shot. Bruno Fernandes had the first goal when he stole the ball from midfielder Eric Dier’s pass.

The ball from distance opened the scoring for Fred.

The loss was somewhat unlucky for Lloris, as he repeatedly showed his talent to save the away team.

But for the second goal, Lloris flew out of reach but failed.

Tottenham had few opportunities and was two goals behind, but it was not until the 82nd minute that coach Antonio Conte made his first substitutions.

The victory could not help Man Utd improve to fifth place, but they closed the gap with Tottenham to four points, with one less game played than this opponent.
