Tottenham and Manchester United’s contrasting situations summed up in two photos

Tottenham Hotspur won against Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday.

Tottenham Hotspur returned to winning ways in the Premier League on Sunday evening with a 3-0 triumph over Manchester United.

The North London outfit headed into the game at White Hart Lane on the back of a 1-1 draw with Liverpool at Anfield in the league.

With Leicester City having won against Sunderland away from home at the Stadium of Light earlier in the day, Tottenham needed to pick up all three points from the encounter against United to keep pace.

Things were not going Spurs’ way in the first half, but the North London outfit scored three goals in six minutes in the second period.

Dele Alli, Toby Alderweireld and Erik Lamela scored the goals for Tottenham, who remain seven points behind leaders Leicester.

While the victory means that Mauricio Pochettino’s side are still in the race for the Premier League title, the result has put United’s chances of a top-four finish under more doubt.

Louis van Gaal’s side are now four points behind fourth-placed Manchester City and just one ahead of West Ham United, who are currently sixth in the standings.

The two photos from the match below sum up the contrasting fortunes of Tottenham and United at the moment.

While Spurs are having a great season and the fans are enjoying every moment of it, the Red Devils are enduring a disappointing campaign and could even finish outside the top four.
