Marcus Rashford shines as a star as Manchester United beat Tottenham with 2-1.

According to the details, Marcus Rashford scored a brace to nullify Dele Alli’s brilliant equaliser and steered Manchester United to a 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs went into the match ahead of United after their mini-revival under their new boss, who replaced the sacked Mauricio Pochettino at the London club last month.

Struggling United had made their worst start to a season in 31 years but played with energy and adventure and deserved their win.

Fired by United 12 months ago, Mourinho was given a generous reception by the club’s fans as he walked along the touchline to the dugout before kickoff even though he was plotting to defeat his former team and collect a fourth win in two weeks at Tottenham.

Rashford ensured that did not happen, opening the scoring in the sixth minute when he picked up a loose ball on the left, cut inside, and drilled a low shot inside the near post to beat goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga.

Dele Alli maintained his strong scoring form since Mourinho’s arrival by equalising with a superb individual goal in the 39th, bringing down a dropping ball with a deft touch and poking a finish into the corner.

Rashford was the standout player all match and he grabbed the winner from the penalty spot after being fouled by Moussa Sissoko following a foraging run down the left into the box.

The win lifted United above Tottenham into sixth place in the standings and should ease some of the pressure on Mourinho’s replacement, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, after the team’s disappointing recent draws against Sheffield United and Aston Villa.

Mourinho had started his Spurs tenure with league wins over West Ham and Bournemouth, and a Champions League victory against Olympiakos.

In other matches, Southampton beat Norwich 2-1, Chelsea defeated Aston Villa 2-1, Leicester went second with a 2-0 win over Watford while Wolves were 2-0 winners over West Ham.

Jamie Vardy opened the scoring for Leicester from the spot in the 55th minute while James Maddison netted in the 90th minute to seal the win.

Southampton jumped out of the relegation zone with their win over fellow battlers Norwich.

Danny Ings (22nd) and Ryan Bertrand (43rd) scored for Southampton while Temmu Pukki got one back for the Canaries.
