Thottenham 2-2 Man Utd Highlights
Watch Thottenham 2-2 Man Utd Highlights as Man utd slipped its victory as Heung Min son had a equaliser goal at last moment of the match at Thottenham hotspur stadium.
As thottenham is on the 5th position of the points table, Man utd is placed on the 4th position of the premier league table.
Erik ten Hag’s side appeared on course to establish an eight-point cushion in fourth place as clinically-taken first-half goals from Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford put them in control.
But Spurs, wounded from their 6-1 thrashing by Newcastle, after which Cristian Stellini was sacked as interim boss and replaced by Ryan Mason, pulled one back through Pedro Porro then forced a deserved equaliser when Son converted Harry Kane’s low cross.
The hosts had enough chances to take all three points in the second half, while Manchester United will rue their own failure to convert their earlier opportunities, with Bruno Fernandes crashing an effort off the underside of the bar when it looked easier to score.
The draw takes Spurs up to fifth, six points behind Manchester United having played two games more, and ensures United still have work to do to be sure of Champions League qualification.
It was clinical from United, the opener coming from their first attack, and at the other end, Spurs lacked the same cutting edge, their issues typified by Richarlison, who shot too close to David de Gea then tried a cut-back when better placed for a shot.
The visitors continued to slice through Sputs’ defence, going close to adding a second after 19 minutes when Sancho’s deflected effort was headed off the line by Ivan Perisic after his initial shot had been blocked by Cristian Romero inside the box.
Erik ten Hag on interview
Erik said in post match interview, “We have the worst schedule also in the Premier League, that will not change. You have to take that. You can’t use it as an excuse. The time is enough time to recover, so our players are in demand to be ready. Today they were not ready.
“We thought 90 per cent is enough, that’s why we gave balls away. And when you don’t do your jobs in positioning, you concede goals.
“After half time there was a difference, we lost control because we are not all secure. Then you have to go into the fight. When you lose the battles, don’t have possession and don’t have chances you concede goals. That’s what happened. Then you have to be satisfied and take that point.
“It has to be [100 per cent]. You have to bring it every time. I know that they are not robots and it’s a tough schedule. But we can’t accept it when you are playing for Man Utd and you area wearing this shirt.
“You have to give [100 per cent] in every occasion, every game. And as a team, you have to manage the game, get the win, and that makes everyone happy and satisfied.
“But the basis is always to give everything, and that’s how you have to prepare as a player, that you are ready for the game, for the battle, for the fight.”
Ryan Mason on postmatch interview
“Big character, big personality, stuck together, kept believing, acted as a team throughout the whole game.
“That pleases me after what happened at the weekend because we probably didn’t have that as a group.
“Off the back of how the first half went, in terms of the scoreline, to go out and stick together, fight for each other and really get the fans involved – and I felt like they helped us massively – is pleasing.
“It proves a lot to me that I already thought about this group but to see it on the pitch is a good feeling.”
“We created many chances in the second half, in the fist half as well. Maybe if we were a bit more clinical, the flow of the game would have been different.
“But in the second half we kept pushing, we had some really clear openings. Maybe if we had got the second goal earlier, we could have kept pushing.
“I felt like, once we scored the second, the lads had invested so much energy that we went a little bit flat. But to come off 2-2 after being 2-0 down at half-time is a positive.”
