Manchester United have closed the gap on Premier League leaders Manchester City to two points courtesy of a 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford this afternoon.

Anthony Martial came off the bench to score the only goal of the game with just nine minutes remaining, lifting United three points clear of their opponents as they maintained their 100% home record in the Premier League this season.

Spurs were without injured top-scorer Harry Kane , and the visitors struggled to create much in his absence during a slow and uneventful opening half an hour.
