Match report

A thrilling 90 minutes of action on Thursday evening ultimately culminated in Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United sharing the spoils, in a 2-2 stalemate.

The goalscoring in north London was kicked into gear with just seven minutes on the clock, courtesy of Jadon Sancho.

After Marcus Rashford’s dart across the pitch culminated in Sancho being picked out on the left flank, the England international wasted little time in cutting inside, before picking out the far corner with aplomb:

Then, on the stroke of the interval, it was two.

On this occasion, Rashford went from provider to goalscorer, latching onto Bruno Fernandes’ defence-splitting pass before leaving Eric Dier for dead, and lashing beyond Fraser Forster:

With the evening’s visitors in cruise control, and the home crowd inside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium making little effort to hide their frustrations, however, Spurs, to their credit, emerged for the 2nd-half completely rejuvenated.

From here, the two sides exchanged chances, with Son Heung-min and Bruno Fernandes having both come within a whisker of finding the net before the former, ultimately, did so.

Inevitably, it was Harry Kane who laid on his attacking partner in crime, directing a gorgeous ball across the face of goal for Son to slot home with ease:

And this is how things remained through the full-time whistle, as the spoils were ultimately shared in a thrilling 2-2 stalemate between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.
