Man Utd beat Spurs, West Ham maintain top-four charge

Manchester United underlined their ‘comeback kings’ tag by recovering from a first-half deficit to beat Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 on Sunday and cement their place in the Premier League’s top four.

Victories for Chelsea and Liverpool on Saturday and West Ham United earlier on Sunday meant defeat at Tottenham might have induced some jitters at Old Trafford.

 

But they responded to going behind to Son Heung-min’s opener to win 3-1 with goals by Fred, Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood. Victory ‘narrowed’ Manchester City’s lead to 11 points but more importantly for United they are nine points above fifth-placed Chelsea with seven games remaining.
