Marcus Rashford’s double ensured Jose Mourinho left Old Trafford empty handed on his first return to Manchester United since he was sacked by the club just under a year ago.

The England striker scored either side of Dele Alli’s magnificent individual effort to earn United a 2-1 win over Tottenham, and inflict Mourinho’s first defeat as since he replaced Mauricio Pochettino in the Spurs dugout last month.

It failed to have the desired effect, as United held on for an extremely welcome three points to ease the pressure on Solskjaer ahead of Saturday’s Manchester derby.

Shortly after the hour mark, Mourinho sent on Christian Eriksen, still yet to start a game under his management, to try and change the pattern of a game that, save for a five-minute spell at the end of the first period, the home side had bossed.

Typically though, United failed to take full advantage of their dominance, and a moment of magic from Alli saw the sides go into the break on level terms.

United were in the ascendancy, with Mourinho facing a tactical puzzle but also nursing sore shins, after Winks’ challenge on Daniel James had sent the winger flying into the Spurs boss on the touchline.

Mourinho made two changes to the side that had started the 3-2 win over Bournemouth, restoring Harry Winks to the centre of midfield and bringing in Lucas Moura, in favour of Tanguy Ndombele and Eric Dier.
