EPL: Tottenham Holds Man United In Thrilling Draw

Tottenham twice pegged back Manchester United in the Super Sunday clash at Old Trafford as both sides settled for an intriguing 2-2 draw.

United would have snatched a late winner through top scorer this season for the Red Devils Scot Mctominay but he could not keep his header down to the frustration of manager Erik ten Hag.

Minority shareholder and multi billionaire owner of the INEOS Group, Sir Jim Ratcliffe was in the stadium to watch the team for the first time since his 25% takeover and was flanked by legendary Sir Alex Ferguson in the directors box.

Rasmus Hojlund connected brilliantly to a deflected ball as Destiny Udogie made to make a clearance as Marcus Rashford attempted to hit the ball after he was put through by Bruno Fernandez.

Goalkeeper Andre Onana who now jets off to the Africa Cup of Nations in Cote d’Ivoire as Cameroon begins their journey to a sixth title began the move that led to the goal.

Richarlison’s textbook header from a cornerkick restored parity for Tottenham Hotspur but that excitement did not last long for Ange Postecoglu’s men as Rashford put United ahead in the 40th minute with a crisp low shot to the voorom right corner.

Cristian Romero saw a shot rattle the United crossbar as the game petered away and 49 seconds into the second half Rodrigo Bentancur levelled for Spurs as United’s defence were in all sorts of places.
