Three things we’ve learned from Man United v Spurs

The Special One’s Reds have finally figured out how to see out a game

Well it’s finally happened for Jose Mourinho, after three 1-1 draws in the Premier League in-a-row, Manchester United have finally managed to see out a 1-0 victory.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan sealed the win and became the first player from Armenia to net in England’s top flight after blasting past an impressive Hugo Lloris in the 29th minute.

Spurs had their chances, particularly from a Victor Wanyama header, but it has to be said that the Red Devils were full value for their 1-0 success.

Here’s three things we took from the game

United fans really need to pray for Mkhitaryan

Since coming back from exile, the Armenian has proved to Mourinho he’s got more X Factor than Honey G by making the area behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic his own of late.

He again proved his worth today by utterly running the show in midfield and grabbing a beautiful winner to boot.

But, his day was cruelly ended by a challenge from Tottenham’s Danny Rose in the 84th minute – which saw him leave the field on a stretcher. United fans wasted no time in flooding social media to offer support to Mkhitaryan, who looks to have a serious ankle knock.

Get well soon!

2. Fellaini has fallen foul of the Old Trafford faithful

Marouane Fellaini’s embarrassing cameo at Goodison Park has not been forgotten by the United supporters it seems.

With today’s contest in the melting pot again with 15 minutes to go Jose sent the Belgian out to warm up. To put it mildly, some of those inside Old Trafford made their feelings known to the manager on the planned tactical move.

We know it’s panto season and Fellaini was a naughty boy last week, but was their really a need to boo him?

3. What now for Spurs?

Having been knocked out of the Champions League, today’s defeat was Tottenham’s third reverse in their last five outings.

With his outfit still just three points from the top four, another foray into the transfer market in January is simply a must for Mauricio Pochettino.

Summer signings like Vincent Janssen and Moussa Sissoko have been about as useful as an underwater hairdryer to Spurs this campaign, so they may need to splash the cash once more if they don’t want to be traversing Europe on Thursdays next season.

Net some great punts on the Premier League are on
