Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho was spotted limping on the touchline after being involved in a collision with Manchester United midfielder Daniel James.

The Welsh winger was sent tumbling after a challenge from Harry Winks as they both battled for possession near the touchline.

And Mourinho found himself in the firing line as he edged out of his technical area, with James smashing his head on the Tottenham boss’ shins as he slid off the pitch towards the away bench.

Winks was booked for the challenge while James required treatment from the United medical staff before he could return to the action.

Meanwhile, Mourinho was left wincing in pain and may be less keen to venture towards the edge of the pitch in the future.

Tottenham were playing catch-up at Old Trafford after Marcus Rashford's early strike squirmed past Paulo Gazzaniga at his near post.

The England international went close on several more occasions while Mason Greenwood and Jesse Lingard also tried their luck as United dominated the first half.

It was Tottenham boss Mourinho's first game back at United in charge of a team since he was sacked by the Red Devils 12 months ago.

But Mourinho insists that he has fond memories of his spell at the club, despite his acrimonious departure.

The 56-year-old won the League Cup and the Europa League during his first season in charge but missed out on the Premier League and the FA Cup the following campaign.

Relations between Mourinho and the board soured ahead of his third season and he was eventually given the boot in December, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer taking over in the Old Trafford hotseat.

“Going back to Old Trafford is to go back to a place where I was happy,” said Mourinho.

“I can say that I have a great relation with the United supporters. I went back as a pundit, which is a different perspective. I was really humbled by such a beautiful reception.

“I left the club. I took my time to process everything that happened, took my time to prepare myself for the next challenge and honestly Manchester United for me now is in my book of experiences, my history book.
