Tottenham win over Manchester United in front of record crowd

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho praised Alexis Sanchez's effort, but felt the attacker was not suited to the way his side's loss to Tottenham unfolded.

Man Utd 2-0 Huddersfield: United were woeful at Tottenham so Mourinho needs a response and this should be a good game for them.

"Sometimes mistakes happen. In the last match against Tottenham, the first goal is not legal".

"We made a bad mistake in the first goal, a mistake by the whole team, they watch videos and they analyse the Spurs kick-off", he told BT Sport.

After the kickoff, Jan Vertonghen's high, long pass from inside his own half reached Harry Kane who headed to Dele Alli and the midfielder flicked the ball across for Eriksen to finish.

"Try to finish second".

Christian Eriksen had put Spurs ahead inside 15 seconds, capitalising on uncharacteristically poor defending by United to lace the home side into a lead with the quickest goal of the season.

"So yes, of course, a minute of silence for them and for the families, but I think they would love happiness, joy, a Manchester United victory, points, goals..."

The big-haired Belgian came off the bench during Wednesday's 2-0 defeat at Wembley, but he lasted just seven minutes and 29 seconds before being subbed off again.

He said: "I don't think it is very normal to concede a goal like we did".

"You know that your opponent, sooner or later, is going to drop at least a couple of points and you are completely in control".

Manchester United finally lost their first game of 2018 and it was against Tottenham, who are undefeated against the Devils at home for three seasons running now.

And Mourinho challenged his players to shrug off the after effects of defeat at Spurs to continue their upward curve in the league this season compared his debut campaign at United past year. The defence was great - Jan [Vertonghen] and Davinson [Sanchez] - and the whole team just played well. He's a player that you miss on the pitch.

City have endured a hectic season having progressed to the Champions League last 16, the FA Cup fifth round and the League Cup final apart from dominating the league and Guardiola said he would rest his players following the Burnley game.
