Manchester United v Tottenham Hotspur - Premier League
Anthony Martial scored the winner late in the second half

Manchester United beat Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 at Old Trafford thanks to a goal from super substitute Anthony Martial. The result saw them reduce the gap to City to just two points in the Premier League title race but their neighbours have a game in hand.

Spurs struggled without the injured Harry Kane while United also wasted a few chances before the eventual goal.

The home side didn't score until Anthony Martial came on as a substitute and David De Gea's long ball was flicked on by Romelu Lukaku for the young Frenchman to score past Hugo Lloris.

Here's how Twitter reacted to the game.

It didn't start too well for Spurs as United dominated the opening stages of the first half.

But the game was a pretty drab affair with no real clear-cut chances on goal. Expected? Maybe so.

Romelu Lukaku got a bit of stick for not finding the back of the net. The Belgian's weakness was exposed as most chances fell to his weaker left foot.

But he received a lot of praise for his assist...

...as, finally, after what was a pretty drab affair at Old Trafford, Martial scored in the 81st minute to give the Red Devils the lead.

Jose Mourinho also got some praise and love.

Ok maybe not from everyone...
