Tottenham set new club record in first half of Premier League clash vs Man Utd

Tottenham set new club record in first half of Premier League clash vs Man Utd

Postecoglou's side broke a record at Old Trafford.

Tottenham Hotspur set a new club record during the first half of their match against Manchester United.

Spurs travelled up to the North-West on Sunday for a huge Premier League clash with Manchester United.

Ange Postecoglou's side came into the game looking to build on their recent resurgence. Spurs suffered a dramatic slump in form after enjoying a superb start to the season, but arrived at Old Trafford off the back of five wins in six games in all competitions.

In contrast, Erik ten Hag's United had won just two of their previous seven league outings, and in December lost to the likes of Nottingham Forest, West Ham and Bournemouth.

Tottenham won 2-0 when the two sides met in North London in the second week of the Premier League season, with Pape Sarr, Son Heung-Min and James Maddison beginning the post-Harry Kane era with inspired performances.

Sunday's clash at Old Trafford didn't start too well for Tottenham as Rasmus Hojlund's rocket put the hosts ahead.

Spurs soon hit back though Richarlison when the Brazilian striker rose above his marker at a corner to head the ball past Andre Onana.

The goal put Spurs on level terms, but it also had a greater significance. Tottenham have now scored in a club record 33 consecutive league games, something that will delight fans and manager alike.

They won't be too pleased about is the relative ease with which United hit back. Marcus Rashford curled a low strike into the bottom corner just before half-time to restore United's lead, despite the visitors enjoying the lion's share of possession and chances.

Postecoglou's side didn't mess around though, and 50 seconds into the second half they were back level.

Before Ten Hag had even taken his seat in the dugout, Rodrigo Bentancur ghosted into the box and rifled an effort into the top corner from close range.

Given the injury struggles Tottenham have at the moment, Postecoglou will be pleased with how his side responded to twice falling behind.
