Tottenham 2 – Manchester United 0
It took Spurs 11 seconds to break the deadlock against Manchester United.
Jose Mourinho’s side didn’t had a chance to touch the ball as Tottenham raced into a 1-0 lead at Wembley.
Tottenham attacked directly from kick-off.
A long ball was pumped upfield towards Harry Kane. Kane headed a flick-on to Dele Alli. Alli applied a backheel to Christian Eriksen, and the Dane scored past David De Gea.

Man United shot themselves in the foot as Tottenham doubled their lead. A cross from right-back Kieran Trippier was guided into his own net by Phil Jones.
The Red Devils never looked like coming back into the game as Spurs boosted their hopes of finishing in the top four.
Paul Pogba vs Jose Mourinho
One of the big talking points for Man United fans after the Tottenham game is what happened between Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho.
Unlike in most of United’s matches against the top six this season, Mourinho didn’t pick Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera in a more defensive setup.
Instead, Pogba, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial all started in an attacking looking United XI.
But the Red Devils failed to cause Spurs problems at the back. And Pogba, who struggled to impress at Wembley, was subbed out the game for Juan Mata just after the hour mark.
Moreover, Pogba had an argument with Mourinho during the match.
In a moment which everyone saw, Mourinho appeared to scold his French international on the sidelines.
But did Pogba shut up and listen?
No, he talked back to the Special One as fans took to social media to highlight the falling out between the manager and record signing.
