Tottenham Hotspur take on Manchester United as the resumed 2019/20 Premier League season continues on Friday night.

Marcus Rashford’s busy week making the difference off the pitch was almost complimented with a decisive impact on it with Hugo Lloris denying the England striker from close range. But after seizing the initiative in the match, Spurs broke with real pace and Steven Bergwijn gave the hosts the lead with a fine dribble capped off by a powerful strike that ricocheted off David De Gea and into the back of the net. Harry Maguire was turned easily by the Dutch forward in the build-up to the opener, which will concern Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
