Until then, it is goodbye from us. Have a wonderful evening!

...

That is all from our live coverage of the Premier League encounter. Do join us for the midweek games.

...

Pochettino's side have two easy fixtures up next and will be looking to make up lost ground in these matches.

...

The game lived up to its billing and didn't disappoint. Manchester United will be happy with the result, however, the same cannot be said about Spurs who struggled to create anything of note.

...

Henrikh Mkhitaryan proved to be the difference for the home side with his solitary goal proving enough to hand the Old Trafford side their first league win since 6th November.

...

United have closed the gap on Spurs to three points and are now only 6-points off the top four.

...

And Jose finally wins a Premier League game after weeks and weeks of draws and losses. They will be happy with the performance but also they will be sceptical about the extent of injury to Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

...

FULL-TIME: Manchester United 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur

...

90+7' Spurs win a throw-in and this is the last chance of the game. 

...

Can Fellaini do any more damage to his side after last week's penalty?

...

90+6' Substitution: Marouane Fellaini comes on to replace Ander Herrera who has been excellent in the heart of United's midfield.

...

Rose swings in the corner but it is easily cleared. Spurs regroup and launch another attack. Rose goes on a run and goes down inside the box but it wasn't a penalty. What a tackle from Jones!

...

90+4' Less than 3 minutes to go and Spurs continue to try and probe the United defence. They win a corner and this is now or never for the London outfit.

...

Tottenham continue to push forward with Alderweireld now playing as a false nine. Can they find an equaliser?

...

90+2' Sissoko tries to find Kane on the back post but the cross is overhit and it goes out for a goal-kick.

...

90' It is official. We are going to have six minutes of added time. And the crowd is vehemently booing Rose as soon as he takes a touch.

...

89' Rashford has been released down the left but the youngster fails to control the ball and it goes out for a goa-kick.

...

Will we see a late goal in this encounter? I would still bet on it. There are going to be 6 minutes of added time.

...

87' Marcus Rashford swings in a free-kick from the left but he overhit it and it goes out for a goal kick.

...

86' Dele Alli is late in his challenge on Michael Carrick and the referee awards a free-kick but refrains from booking the Spurs midfielder.

...

There will be a considerable stoppage time and Spurs have approximately 10 minutes including added time to find a way back into this.

...

85' Substitution: Eric Bailly comes on to replace the injured Mkhitaryan, who had to be stretchered off.

...

83' Substitution: Georges-Kevin N'Koudou comes on to replace Eriksen as Pochettino's last throw of the dice. Can they equalize?

...

Mkhitaryan is still down on the field. He looks to be hurt and the stretcher comes on. Eric Bailly is preparing to come on to replace the goalscorer. We all hope that the Armenian is alright. He had only started to impress for the Old Trafford outfit and now this.

...

81' YELLOW CARD: Danny Rose. Mkhitaryan is in the thick of things here. He is making everything happen and this time he beats Rose on the right flank before being brought down by the Spurs left-back.

...

Not more than 15 minutes left for Manchester United to hold on and for Spurs to hit back. Will we see another goal in this encounter. I would say so.

...

79' Manchester United win a corner. Mkhitaryan swings it in but it is cleared easily.

...

And now it is Marouane Fellaini who is warming up. And the crowd boo the former Everton man. Something to do with last week's penalty that he conceded? Maybe. 

...

77' YELLOW CARD: Kyle Walker is booked. The cards and the tackles are flying in now. It is Walker now who is adjudged to have fouled Rashford and the referee obliges.

...

76' YELLOW CARD: Henrikh Mkhitaryan is booked for a poor foul on Vertonghen.

...

74' Ibra releases Mkhitaryan down the right and the Armenian does brilliantly to beat his marker but he fails to d any real damage there. Another chance goes begging. Spurs are on the ropes here.

...

Wayne Rooney is also warming up on the sidelines. Can he come on and seal the deal for his side?

...

The youngster has been brought on for the pace that he brings and the ability to track back and assist his fellow team-mates, case in point Darmian.

...

72' Substitution: Marcus Rashford comes on to replace Anthony Martial.

...

70' Erisken tries something different and goes for De Gea's near post. The Spaniard dives and parries it to safety. That was the chance that Spurs needed but they have failed to capitalise on it.

...

69' This is end to end stuff and Spurs win a free-kick just outside the United box. Silly foul to concede by Rojo. Eriksen will be intersted. Can he bring his side back on level terms.

...

Manchester United need to kill the game off because Spurs have the quality to hit back at the slightest of chances,

...

67' SUBSTITUTION: Harry Winks comes on to replace Dembele.

...

This is end to end stuff. Spurs are riding their luck but can they hit the crucial equaliser.

...

65' YELLOW CARD: Paul Pogba is booked for a foul on Dembele.
