Premier League: Tottenham 1-3 Man United

[Monday, March 05, 2012 ]

Manchester United moved back to within two points of Premier League leaders Manchester City with an important 3-1 victory at Tottenham Hotspur.

United went ahead against the run of play on the stroke of half-time when Wayne Rooney headed home from a corner and Ashley Young made it 2-0 on the hour mark with a well-taken volley from a tough angle.

The England international then doubled his tally with a delightful finish from outside the area in the 69th minute and the hosts could only reply with a consolation strike from substitute Jermain Defoe.
