Tottenham Hotspur slipped back in the title race yesterday evening as they fell to a 1-0 defeat against Manchester United.

Spurs were unable to recover from a first half finish from Rashford, despite pummelling De Gea’s goal with shot after shot.

The Spanish keeper faced 11 shots on target without letting a single one in, including one-on-ones from Harry Kane and Dele Alli.

There were more negatives for Pochettino yesterday too, as both Moussa Sissoko and Harry Kane left the pitch injured.

Sissoko pulled up in the first half while running for a ball down the wing, an issue Pochettino later confirmed as a groin pull.

Harry Kane managed to finish the full 90 minutes, but was seen hobbling off the pitch at full time.

Poch told the press that both would need to be assessed today, but will have his fingers crossed, as Tottenham are currently short in central midfield and striker positions.

Poch said (Football London): “No I am not worried, you know me, I think I am worried about, because we will see what happens with Harry Kane, I think Moussa is only a small thing but we will see, we need to assess Harry Kane. At the end I think he suffered a big tackle and twist his ankle and now we need to assess him the next few days, hoping it is not a big issue.”

On Sissoko he said: “No it was groin, a small thing in his groin. Let’s hope it is not a big issue too.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Our biggest issue yesterday was finishing in front of goal…. All of our shots were kicked right at the goal keeper… This is a trend for the last few years… It seems like they are all taught to do this in training…
