We all knew it was going to be a tough game, but we can count ourselves lucky to have taken 3 points from Harry Redknapp’s Tottenham.
Spurs dominated possession for spells of the game without really threatening the goal, but had a goal disallowed after Emmanuel Adebayor handled the ball before flicking it into United’s goal.
United nicked a goal before half time when Rooney nodded in from a corner, but Spurs were not to be discouraged and came out in the second half full of determination.
So you can imagine their disappointment when they fell asleep from a throw in and allowed Ashley Young to acrobatically volley United into a 2 goal lead. Things got worse when Young grabbed a second with a curling effort and Spurs could only grab a consolation goal through sub Jermain Defoe after slack play from United.
