Martial earns Man Utd late win over Spurs

Martial

Substitute Anthony Martial scored the only goal of the game to hand Manchester United victory over Tottenham in a cagey encounter at Old Trafford.

The two sides had created few clear-cut chances until Martial latched on to a flicked header from Romelu Lukaku with nine minutes left.

Lukaku had hit the post with a header just a few minutes earlier, while Spurs' Dele Alli poked wide from close range in the second half.

Moussa Sissoko shot over the bar with the closest of the few chances made before the break, but Martial's winner edged second-placed United closer to Premier League leaders Manchester City.
