Man Utd 1-2 Tottenham Stats and Highlights
Tottenham recorded their second consecutive victory at Old Trafford by beating Manchester United to move up to sixth in the Premier League.
United began briskly before Emmanuel Adebayor guided in a header from Christian Eriksen’s cross.
Eriksen double the lead by heading in from close-range after another Spurs break but Danny Welbeck beat Hugo Lloris to set up a frantic finish.
Although Javier Hernandez had a flick saved, Spurs held on.
It completed a hugely impressive result for new Tottenham head coach Tim Sherwood, who is unbeaten in his four Premier League games in charge.
And having previously waited nearly 24 years to beat Manchester United on their home turf, Spurs have shown that they still have a part to play in the title race.

Since then the sides have drawn twice at White Hart Lane, meaning Tottenham are unbeaten in their past three games against United.
The Red Devils have won their past six games in league and cup. It is their best winning run since a six-match streak between August and September 2012 which ended with a 3-2 loss at home to Tottenham.
They have claimed eight wins from their past 13 top-flight matches, losing twice.
Danny Welbeck has scored four goals and assisted one in his past four Premier League appearances.
