We Wanted That Quick Goal - Tottenham Star Hails Win Over Manchester United

Mata extends Manchester United stay

Jose Mourinho brought on Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini just past the hour mark with Man United struggling to create chances and Spurs continuing to challenge the visitors' defence.

Optimism was high - if they could maintain this strike-rate they would win 514-0. That was one thing, but this defeat for José Mourinho's team contained so many different sub-plots it was hard to think of a more eccentric occasion under his management.

A handful of minutes later, the Belgian's night was over, as a furious-looking Mourinho hauled him off, sending Ander Herrera on in his place.

Christian Eriksen took just 11 seconds to break the deadlock at Wembley, the fastest Premier League goal for 15 years.

Only Ledley King's 10-second goal for Tottenham against Bradford in 2000 and Alan Shearer's after the same time for Newcastle against Manchester City in 2003 are ahead of Eriksen and Viduka. Spurs now have the first and third fastest Premier League goalscorers, and no Premier League title.

A long-ball pumped forward was flicked on by Harry Kane before Heung-Min Son found Eriksen unmarked in the box.

Sotoudeh told The Guardian that a woman appeared on the exact same telecoms box as Movahed at around 11 a.m. Thousands of people, including men, have changed their profile pictures in support of Movahed.

Four Tottenham players had touched ball before Eriksen was celebrating.

His debut left Guardiola enthusing: "Yesterday he made the first training session but today we saw how good he is".

In the 28th minute, Jones did it for him, turning Kieran Trippier's cross into his own net after opting to play the ball with his right foot instead of his left.

Less than five minutes later Antonio Valencia went through the back of Alli inside United's area. Mourinho marched down the tunnel three minutes before half-time. His early departure felt like a protest of sorts and involved missing yet another moment when Kane outdid Jones to make himself another shooting opportunity.

Tottenham, who announced the signing of Lucas Moura from Paris Saint-Germain shortly before kick-off at Wembley, were a constant threat and had multiple chances to stretch their lead.

'We dominated the game, got a clean sheet and deserved the result against Manchester United. Son had a golden chance to leave Kane with an open goal but chose to shoot instead.
