Manchester United 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur – Premier League – 1st January 2014
Tim Sherwood continued his superb start to his tenure in the hot seat at Spurs, this time overseeing a fine win at Old Trafford. despite making a good start to the game, the Red Devils found themselves goal down on 34 minutes when Emmanuel Adebayor nodded home a Christian Eriksen centre. The Danish schemer then doubled the Lilywhites’ lead just after the hour-mark as the visitors shocked the home side. United did rally, when Danny Welbeck getting a goal back but despite a number of near misses and penalty decisions not given, David Moyes’ men just couldn’t find an equaliser. The win sees Spurs go sixth while it also signals the end of the Red Devils’ recent winning streak.
