man united 2024

Tottenham twice came from behind to claim a point for a 2-2 draw away to Manchester United.

It took just three minutes for Manchester United to hit the lead when Rasmus Højlund collected the ball in the area after Marcus Rashford had been brought down and struck emphatically for his second league goal of the season.

Rodrigo Bentancur came close to a quick Spurs equaliser, but his near-post header from a corner was cleared off the line by the retreating Diogo Dalot.

And on 19 minutes United failed to deal with another corner, this time from the opposite side, which cost them the advantage as Richarlison rose highest to head into the far corner to equalise.

Five minutes before half-time, however, Erik ten Haga’s side regained the lead with a long-awaited home goal for Marcus Rashford to slide into the far corner after Højlund had neatly played in for his first strike at Old Trafford since May. .

Spurs almost grabbed another equalizer from another corner at the end of a pulsating opening half, but captain Cristian Romero saw his header hit the crossbar.

It didn’t take long for them to level at 2-2, though, moments early in the second half when Timo Werner picked out the advancing Bentancuro and he raced into the area before firing past Andre Onan.

Despite the occasional flurry, no further goals followed (although Scott McTominay missed a huge header through injury when he was found unmarked) and the result leaves Spurs fifth, level with Arsenal in fourth, while United are eight points adrift in seventh.
