With a well-deserved victory, Manchester United came back from a humiliating defeat at home to Liverpool, relieving pressure on beleaguered manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and turning the focus on his Tottenham opponent Nuno Espirito Santo.
Cristiano Ronaldo was the driving force behind a strong United performance, which was the ideal answer to last week’s 5-0 thumping at Old Trafford, which raised doubts about Solskjaer’s future.
Although the Norwegian manager is not out of the woods yet, Ronaldo made life easier for him with a brilliant far-post volley from Bruno Fernandes’ cross six minutes before halftime, followed by a slide-rule ball to set up Edinson Cavani for a second after the interval.
Spurs, on the other hand, were mediocre, with Harry Kane scarcely appearing in the game and anger among their supporters, who booed manager Nuno after he substituted Lucas Moura with Steven Bergwijn in the second half.
Spurs fans erupted in rage against Nuno and their chairman, with cries of “We want Levy fired” echoing across the cavernous stadium as Marcus Rashford closed things up with a fine goal four minutes from time.
