Jose Mourinho’s Old Trafford return ended on a sour note as Manchester United defeated his new Tottenham side 2-1 on Wednesday.

Manchester United snapped Jose Mourinho’s three-match winning start as Tottenham boss with a convincing performance at Old Trafford.

Marcus Rashford set things in motion when his effort flew past Paulo Gazzaniga to hand the hosts a sixth-minute lead. However, Dele Alli brilliantly equalised just six minutes before the break.

But United continued to have the measure of Spurs in the second-half, with Rashford soon restoring their lead. 

After Moussa Sissoko fouled him in the area, the England international fired home a 49th-minute penalty. It was enough to hand the Red Devils all three points, and to ensure a miserable return for Mourinho.

So, without further ado, we give you the five main talking points from Wednesday’s showdown in Manchester.
