Anthony Martial strikes late to down Tottenham Hotspur

The defeat sees Tottenham lose ground on league leaders Manchester City, with Spurs struggling to threaten without the injured Harry Kane.

Jose Mourinho's Manchester United have not still conceded a Premier League goal from open play at Old Trafford in 2017.

The substitute compounded Harry Kane-less Tottenham's shock Carabao Cup defeat to West Ham, but things could have been different had Dele Alli not wasted Spurs' best chance before Lukaku hit the post and Martial netted the victor.

Mourinho's introduction of Anthony Martial in the 70th minute, proved to be a masterstroke, as the France global netted the victor with 10 minutes left.

'The manager tried to give us a chance, so we have to score and give assists'.

Lukaku, whose mini-goal drought now stretches to more than four matches, had to wait until the 73rd minute for his first clear sight of goal when he burst down the left channel before firing an effort which needed to be tipped away by Lloris.

Dele Alli could not turn in Christian Eriksen's chip behind from close range on 77 minutes, while a minute later Romelu Lukaku headed against a post at the other end.

United substitute Anthony Martial turned out to be the match victor, making the most of poor Spurs defending and finishing past fellow countryman Hugo Lloris.

The United boss insisted his side deserved to take all three points in a tight game at Old Trafford.

Spurs will look to return to winning ways on Champions League duty against European champions Real Madrid in midweek, while United are next in action against Benfica before taking on Chelsea next weekend.
