Bruno Fernandes opened the scoring for Manchester United in the just the second minute of the game as he converted from the spot to put his side in front. However, Spurs were quick to get themselves back in the game as Tanguy Ndombele levelled the score after a defensive mishap from the Red Devils and then Son Heung Min put his team in the lead following some brilliant work from skipper Harry Kane. The North London side then scored four goals without reply to record a 6-1 win.
Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford took to apologise to the club’s global fanbase. ‘First and foremost I'm a United fan, This is my club. I'm so proud to wear this shirt but there are no excuses, it's just not good enough and to every single fan around the world that tuned in today, I'm just so sorry,’ said the Englishman.
