Manchester United 1-6 Tottenham: Player Ratings, Match Stats, Player Stats

〽️ Top: Players

✅ <Tottenham-hotspur-fc/player-stats/2147714">u>FC MOTM: Heung Min-Son - 9.7

⏱️ 7' Son, once again, was simply sensational. He has started the season in sensational form and he carried it into this match, taking advantage Harry Kane's quick free-kick to run through on David de Gea and dink the ball brilliantly over the keeper to put his team ahead early.

A ⏱️ 30' And as part of his wonderful relationship with Harry Kane, he took advantage of United trying to play out from defence to slip the ball to his team-mate, who rolled into the net to put Spurs well clear.

⏱️ 37' And before half-time he got in front of Eric Bailly to nick a Serge Aurier cutback into the net for a 4-1 lead at half-time.

A ⏱️ 37' It's not always been easy for Aurier at Tottenham but he was excellent in the additional space provided to him, and his excellent cutback allowed Son to slot into the net and give Spurs an unassailable lead.

⏱️ 51' And in the second half he sprinted into space behind Paul Pogba to lash his shot across David De Gea and find the corner in superb style.

It has to be caveated that United were down to 10 men for much of the match but Bailly's woeful pass when the score was still only 2-1 led to Harry Kane making it three and was the catalyst for defeat.

Many expected him to be the ideal partner for Maguire but this entire United backline requires a total overhaul.
