Manchester United 1-0 Tottenham
Manchester United push past Tottenham to start their season with a win at Old Trafford, thanks to Kyle Walker’s early own goal. After Christian Eriksen lobbed over when clean through, United went ahead as Walker poked into his own net when attempting to tackle Wayne Rooney.
This led to a much better spell for Man United who did not have a single shot to scare Spurs until Ashley Young’s 65th-minute effort. New Signing Sergio Romero saved Eriksen’s late shot as one of five United debutants.
Louis Van Gaal celebrated his 64th birthday with a victory. Tottenham who did finish fifth in the League last season six points behind United started and ended the game brilliantly, only three days after completing their final pre-season game against AC Milan in Germany.
