Jadon Sancho opened the scoring for Manchester United with a sweet bender after just 7 minutes at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium. Marcus Rashford, showed pace, trickery and his finishing prowess to double United’s lead just before the break.

With Manchester United influence on the game decreasing, Spurs got a goal back from January signing Pedro Porro. The Spaniard smashed in a shot into the top right corner after Harry Kane’s shot was blocked.

Bruno Fernandes should have gotten the third for United just after Spurs scored, however, his effort crashed against the crossbar, Fraser Forster impressively denied Aaron Wan Bisaka’s header on the rebound to keep Tottenham in the game. Eric Dier also missed a free header from 4 yards out.

Kane and Son combined to get the leveller after 80 minutes. An impressive headed pass from Pedro Porro to Kane set up a quick attack. The English striker found onrushing Heung Min Son with a sweeping pass that set the South Korean up nicely for an easy finish; 2-2.

Manchester United keep Losing Concentration

It happened against Sevilla in Manchester, and now against Spurs. It is concerning how Manchester United recently tend to lose focus when they’re in the lead. After scoring their second goal in the first half, Manchester United were lethargic after the restart. Coach Erik ten Hag also criticized some of his players for their inadequate performance against Spurs:

Some thought 90 per cent was enough,” Ten Hag fumed when probed about United letting Spurs back into the game. “I know they are not robots and fatigue is an issue but you have to give it everything on every occasion. That is the basis.

“We took a bit of the gas off and that was our problem. I think it’s been that for a few games where we are sharp and coming ahead and [haven’t] kept it going.

This is not a theme Manchester United want to go into the final games of the season with, especially as they have an important Cup final against an efficient side like Manchester City.
