‘What a bad, bad night’ – Some Spurs fans are furious with display against Man Utd

Tottenham fell their first defeat of the Jose Mourinho era as they were comfortably beaten 2-1 by Manchester United at Old Trafford this evening.

Spurs can have few complaints about the result as they were distinctly second best for most of the encounter.

United took the lead through Marcus Rashford early in the game and piled on the pressure for the remainder of the first half. The away side equalised just before half time courtesy of an individual moment of brilliance from Dele Alli.

However, the second half also got off to the worst possible start possible for Tottenham as United were awarded a penalty after a clumsy challenge from Moussa Sissoko on Marcus Rashford.

The England forward stepped up to slot home the penalty and while Spurs huffed and puffed for the remainder of the game, they never really troubled David de Gea.

Some Spurs fans were extremely displeased not just with the quality of the performance but also the team’s apparent lack of attacking intent.

It is important that we don’t overreact to one result. While the performance certainly left a lot to be desired, this lack of effort and intensity has been a constant theme in big games for Spurs for the last year or so. Additionally, Man Utd have proved adept at getting results against the big sides.
