“Harry Kane team?” – Twitter Reacts To Tottenham’s 1-0 Loss To Manchester United At Old Trafford

Published

on

For the third season running, Tottenham were defeated at the Old Trafford and yet again by a single goal, with substitute Anthony Martial being the difference on the afternoon. And with that being done, Tottenham have now lost their last two games without Harry Kane, who missed the fixture due to an injury.

Heung-Min Son was given the nod despite Pochettino having Fernando Llorente at his disposal. Furthermore, the fact that Tottenham had scored at least 3 goals in 5 of their last 6 away Premier League games was an uplifting factor as well. The stats were utterly favouring Tottenham prior to the game given that we had won all of our last six away Premier League games. But all that went down the drain.

The game was evenly poised until the first half, but United soon upped their grip after the break. A physical approach saw United get an eventual upper hand, yet Tottenham managed to keep their slate clean. Tottenham had better possession and more attempts – even more shots on target – but United’s sole goal made the difference.

With United building momentum, they almost took the lead when Jesse Lingard’s well-worked cross found Romelu Lukaku in the box. But the Belgian’s towering header struck the frame and the chance went begging. A series of attempts followed, and eventually in the 81st minute, United took the lead. David de Gea had played his long ball to Romelu Lukaku and the Belgian’s slick header released Anthony Martial into space and the Frenchman made no mistake in putting his side ahead. And that remained the highlight throughout.

With that being done, here is how the fans reacted to the defeat:
