'Tottenham will be mad after 6-1 defeat' - ten Hag warns United squad

Tottenham Hotspur banished all memories of their 6-1 defeat to Newcastle to complete a remarkable fightback against Manchester United on Thursday night.

Things started badly for the hosts as Jadon Sacho sent the visitors ahead inside seven minutes as Erik ten Hag’s men imposed themselves on the game. Marcus Rashford then finished off a wonderful move to send United into the break with a comfortable lead as the Tottenham players were booed off.

The second half saw a different Tottenham side come onto the pitch. From the off they controlled the tempo and, aided by key personnel like Christian Eriksen being taken off, they found a way back into the game - Pedro Porro volleying a shot home from the right side of the box.

From there Spurs continued to push and, despite a poor individual performance, Son Heung-min bobbled in an equaliser having been expertly picked out by Harry Kane inside the area. Spurs earned just one point but in the context of their recent performances it will feel like a whole lot more.
