Manchester United vs Tottenham LIVE Football Score 30 Oct 2021
ABOUT THE MATCH
Tottenham is going head to head with Manchester United starting on 30 Oct 2021 at 16:30 UTC at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium stadium, London city, England. The match is a part of the Premier League.
Greenwood’s late goal may have extended Manchester United’s victory margin more than Spurs manager Jose Mourinho would feel was justified but he can have no serious complaints about the final outcome.
Spurs led at the interval but it was United who came out after the break with real purpose and intent, Fred’s equaliser the inevitable result of the pressure that built up.
For a side containing the attacking threat of Son and Harry Kane, Spurs lie dormant for long periods, dragged down by the stodgy gameplan that seems far too conservative for a team boasting two such elite attackers.
Spurs – who won the reverse meeting 6-1 in October – had their moments in the second half but they were fleeting and there was never a sense they were taking control. This loss leaves them six points behind fourth-placed West Ham in seventh and they will have to improve markedly if they are to turn their top-four aspirations into reality.
