Tottenham vs Man United LIVE: Latest Premier League updates

Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United go head to head on Saturday evening, with both teams looking to close the gap back to the top-four spots in the Premier League table and both managers under pressure. Most of the focus this week has been on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with his job reportedly in danger after a thrashing at the hands of Liverpool last time out.

Nuno Espirito Santo has not been much more of a popular figure in some quarters with Spurs this term, though they did progress to the Carabao Cup quarter-finals in midweek and are one place and point above United in the league table – a victory for either manager in this clash would give some much-needed breathing space.

Other intriguing points to watch develop further during the 90 minutes will be Harry Kane’s lack of goals so far this term, which United stars are left on the sidelines amid an expected reshuffle of the lineup and, perhaps above all else, whether their leaky defence looks more organised and structured after conceding 11 goals in the last three games. Follow all the live updates of Spurs vs Man United below, after the conclusion of Liverpool against Brighton:

HALF TIME: Tottenham 0-1 Man United

Ronaldo has now scored 11 times against Tottenham – more than any other English side. The switch in formation, with Fernandes deeper and Cavani’s runs opening some space, has worked for him here.

HALF TIME: Tottenham 0-1 Man United

A poor first half lit up by a moment of magic. United and Solskjaer are halfway to an important win.

Spurs are booed off at the break – they must improve in the second 45.

Tottenham 0-1 Man United

44 mins: Emerson creates a yard of space before pulling the ball back to Lo Celso, who slices a shot over the bar.

Spurs have been toothless in attack so far and United’s switch in formation has perhaps contributed to that.

Tottenham 0-1 Man United

42 mins: Play is brought back after Ronaldo catches Romero with his arm as both players battled for the ball. No further action is taken.

1635614013

Tottenham 0-1 Man United

41 mins: It would be a stretch to say the goal had been coming by United had been the better team over the previous 10-15 minutes.

But that stunning Ronaldo goal has lit up what had been a poor match up until that point.

GOAL! Tottenham 0-1 Man United (RONALDO 39’)

WOW – what a goal from Ronaldo! It’s stunning finish. Fernandes drifts a inch-perfect pass over the Spurs defence which Ronaldo meets on the full volley. He sends the shot across Lloris and into the net. As good as it gets.

Tottenham 0-0 Man United

37 mins: Play is brought back for a late challenge from McTominay on Lo Celso. This has not been pretty but United do look like they are battling for their manager.

Tottenham 0-0 Man United

35 mins: Brilliant from Wan-Bissaka to chase back and block Son’s shot – although the Spurs forward might have been offside. Spurs beat the United line with a ball slipped through to the forward, who raced clear only to see his shot denied by the recovering full-back.

Tottenham 0-0 Man United

32 mins: Ronaldo is clattered by Dier after receiving the ball with his back to goal.

Moments later Fred lets fly when he had Shaw open to his left. It’s a great strike, swerving towards the far post, and Lloris has to leap to punch it wide.

United’s corner comes to nothing after the ball breaks to Fernandes and his cross back in evades everyone.
