Fernandes and Fred inspire relentless Man United past dismal Tottenham

As Tottenham was beaten at Old Trafford in the Premier League, Manchester United put on perhaps their best performance under manager Erik ten Hag.

Only the brilliant play of Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris prevented United from earning the resounding victory they deserved. Thus, the final score did not accurately reflect their massive superiority.

United poured 19 shots on the Spurs’ goal in the first half alone, but Lloris miraculously kept it intact with five great saves.

Two minutes after the break, Ben Davies’ deflection allowed Fred to finally beat Lloris with a shot, although it was no more than United deserved for a performance that was strong on quality and effort.

In front of a jubilant Stretford End, Bruno Fernandes curled a deft right-foot finish beyond the extending Lloris to put United out of reach after 69 minutes.

Manchester United will remain in fifth place, eight points behind leaders Arsenal, while Spurs remain in third place.

Antonio Conte feels Man United deserved to win

In tonight’s Premier League match at Old Trafford, Antonio Conte concedes that Manchester United was the rightful victor.

United completely outplayed Spurs in the end, winning 2-0.

The enthusiastic crowd made it challenging for the Spurs to build any form of momentum.
The most shots on goal Conte has ever faced came from Spurs, who allowed 28 of them.

Conte stated in his post-game interview: “United played a terrific game; they deserved to win.”

“On our end, we need to develop significantly and be better than we are right now when the level needs to be high.”

“Today, United demonstrated that they are considerably superior to us. United is an excellent squad, in my opinion.”

“We need to work on improving, especially in situations like this where the atmosphere is loud. If we want to be competitive, we need to try to raise our level.”

“As the game approached, we were a little frightened, and we displayed this. This is not to my taste. We must desire to play this game differently, with more personality, and not miss dumb passes in our minds and the minds of our players.”

Erik Ten Hag lauds his team after a sensational performance

Erik ten Hag was pleased with the outcome and how Manchester United played tonight against Tottenham.

After the game, an ecstatic Ten Hag exclaimed, “Today, you saw that we developed. We are extending this season and producing more both inside and outside of possession.”

“You need intensity first, then you need to get the organization in and out of possession, and that’s what we did today.”

“I think we’ve established a new standard. It was a wonderful performance. I concur that United gave their best performance yet.”

“We were in control of the game from the beginning to the end. The process of development is visible.”

Erik Ten Hag reacts after Ronaldo walks down the tunnel

Erik ten Hag admitted he did not speak to Cristiano Ronaldo before the Manchester United superstar walked back to the changing room before the final whistle against Tottenham.

Although Ronaldo was an unused substitute, the 37-year-old made his way back to the dressing room in the 90th minute.

Ten Hag refused to discuss his thoughts on Ronaldo’s actions, saying he would do so on Thursday before the match against Chelsea on Saturday.

Ten Hag admitted to Amazon Prime Video, “He was there, I’ve seen him, yeah, but I didn’t speak to him.”

“I’ll take care of that tomorrow. Not now. We’re celebrating this triumph and need time to rest before Saturday’s crucial Premier League match against Chelsea.”

In his post-game press conference, Ten Hag remarked, “I don’t pay attention Today. Tomorrow, we’ll deal with that. Today, all 11 players delivered outstanding performances, which was the main focus.”

Thierry Henry declined to comment on Ronaldo’s gesture, focusing on how well the hosts played.

“The narrative isn’t about Ronaldo leaving the tunnel before the whistle. We don’t need to talk about Ronaldo every day since United played brilliantly,” Henry stated on Amazon Prime Video.
