Manchester United moved up to sixth in the Premier League as Tottenham suffered their first defeat under Jose Mourinho on his return to Old Trafford.
The result, almost a year on from Mourinho’s last home game as United manager, sees his former club move back into the top six for the first time since September, while Tottenham drops to eighth.
Marcus Rashford opened the scoring for the hosts with a low drive that beat Tottenham goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga, at his near post.
England forward then struck the bar as United missed a succession of chances to extend their lead.
While Dele Alli drew Spurs level with a clipped finish, after he had flicked the ball away from Fred and Ashley Young, the hosts were a good value for their win.
And that was confirmed by Rashford, who rolled in a second-half penalty to register his ninth goal in his last 10 appearances for the club.
