Coming off the back of a 6-0 humbling at the hands of Manchester City in their last top flight outing, Spurs were determined to offer a positive response and ease some of the pressure building on André Villas-Boas' shoulders.

They started brightly and took the lead after 18 minutes through a Kyle Walker free-kick, only for Wayne Rooney to equalise for the visitors just after the half hour mark.

But Spurs edged back in front on 54 minutes with a superb strike from Sandro.

The Brazilian midfielder picked up the ball 30 yards out, turned Tom Cleverley inside out before unleashing an absolute piledriver of a shot from outside the box.

Sandro could not have struck his effort any cleaner, with the ball arrowing into the top corner past a helpless David de Gea.

It was only his third goal for Spurs, and came exactly a year to the day since his last, away to Fulham last season.

Rooney then salvaged a point for the Red Devils from the penalty spot in the 57th minute after Danny Welbeck had been brought down by Hugo Lloris.

"Yes, I think so," Sandro said when asked by Spurs TV if it was the best goal of his career.

"I was injured, I have come back and this was the best goal. I'm so happy."
