Spurs annihilate United at the Wembley Stadium


I was expecting a tough game to be honest and I told a friend before kick-off that I would cherish it if Manchester United could run away with all 3 points on the night. There is no denying the good form the Red Devils had, having won 5 games on the bounce conceding none. The game against Tottenham was definitely a big test.
Over the last 6 times both sides have met, there has always been a winner with United having the bragging rights notching up 4 wins compared to Spurs’ 2 victories. Man Utd fortified their attack line with the acquisition of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal and the Lily Whites also responded with a high profile signing in Brazilian winger Lucas Moura from P.S.G. Spurs boast of having the league’s top scorer in Harry Kane but face a United side that is willing to make second place the worst they can achieve this season.
I was still adjusting the throw pillow I was about to lay my big head on whilst watching the kick-off when I heard the commentator scream goal. It was unbelievable, 11 seconds into the game and my beloved team was already a goal down. It was so surreal for my team that had not conceded a goal in 5 games to be unsettled in less than a minute. I was still hopeful with the flurry of chances United created the following few minutes that followed. I was hoping at the worst we would go into the break with a 1 all draw.

I thought wrong, Phil Jones put the ball in the net like a skilled number 9 to add to Tottenham’s lead making it 2-0 in the 28th minute. At this point I knew it would be a miracle to survive this onslaught. Half time and Spurs led 2 nil.

The second half did not produce any goals and I could  not even rate the performance of United’s new signing Alexis Sanchez on the night. There times I would applaud him for effort and sometimes he felt confused and this can be because of his new team mates. Good win for Spurs and Moussa Dembele of the Lily Whites was my man of the match. Anytime I watch Tottenham he never disappoints me.
Yeah the title states Man Utd were annihilated, but the game ended 2-0. Trust me the scoreline did not do justice to the way Tottenham knocked us round the pitch. In my head it felt like a 5 nil loss to United.
We live to fight another day. I take solace in Chelsea’s 3-0  home loss to Bournemouth. I mean how did that happen? Arsenal’s 3-1 loss to Swansea the preceding night was a normal thing so I was not surprised. Next up for the Red Devils is the visit of Huddersfield Town to Old Trafford. I smell revenge.
Thanks for your time guys. BLESS!!!
