United Fans Thrilled As Anthony Martial Scores Late Winner In 1-0 Victory Over Spurs

Manchester United picked up three crucial points with a flawed but positive performance against Spurs at Old Trafford.

The game itself was a decently entertaining affair where both teams had their moments but it was the Frenchman Anthony Martial who won it for them on the day, coming onto a Romelu Lukaku’s head-on to finish past the helpless Hugo Lloris.

The first half saw both sides come to something of a stalemate but for the most part, the United faithful were a bit happier with what they saw than the Red Devil’s brutally defensive showing against Liverpool.

But when Anthony Martial came off the bench and opened the scoring, however, Old Trafford – and the United fanbase – positively erupted.

Of course, there were the spoilt sports who were not content to let United have their happy moment.

And those who felt the need to state what seemed obvious.

United edge closer to City at the top and Spurs lose out in a game that they would have perhaps felt they could have won with a bit of luck.

Or perhaps the presence of their star-striker.
