Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood combined to complete another comeback on the road for Manchester United – this time at Tottenham.
Tottenham beat Manchester City at White Hart Lane with goals by Son Heung-min and Giovani Lo Celso to go top of the Premier League overnight for the first time since August 2014.

Jose Mourinho secured a sixth win over Pep Guardiola as his Spurs side inflicted a sixth Premier League defeat this term on Manchester City at Spurs.
