Posted on Oct 28 2017 - 2:44pm by admin

Anthony Martial climbed off the bench, to score the winning goal for Manchester United, as they defeated Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 at Old Trafford on Saturday.

The game looked likely to end goalless, with both sides struggling to carve out chances early on in and then failing to convert the few opportunities created in the second half.

United manager, Jose Mourinho, then sent on Martial in the 70th minute to replace Marcus Rashford.

The French forward got on the end of Romelu Lukaku’s flick-on to net in the 81st minute.

The win moves United two points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City and three ahead of Tottenham in third.
