Man United Smash Spurs 3-0 As Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Side Rebound From Liverpool Defeat

Manchester United picked up their first win in the Premier League since September, smashing Tottenham 3-0.

Man United picked up three vital league points at Spurs on Saturday.

And in doing so, relieves pressure on under-fire manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who appeared to be facing sack following his side's crushing defeat to Liverpool, according to reports.

Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring against Spurs, bagging a spectacular volley - with Bruno Fernandes playing a big part in the goal.

Edinson Cavani, who started alongside Ronaldo, doubled his team's advantage in the second-half as he coolly tucked home past Hugo Lloris.

Marcus Rashford completed the rout, tucking home with a cool finish in the 85th minute.

As mentioned, it's Solskjaer's first league win since beating West Ham on September 19.

The victory in London came after he changed up Man United's formation, with the Norwegian opting for a 3-5-2 system.

The Red Devils move level on points (17) with West Ham to fifth place ahead of resuming their campaign next Saturday against cross-town rivals Manchester City.
