Mkhitaryan scores, gets hurt as Man United beats Spurs 1-0

Henrikh Mkhitaryan's first Premier League goal led Manchester United to a 1-0 victory over Tottenham that kept Jose Mourinho's men in contact with the top five as the visitors' miserable away form continued. United have drawn their last four Premier League games at home, which has left them playing catch-up on the leading pack ahead of them. The players are playing well so normally we have to get bad results but now we go away to Crystal Palace, away to West Brom to hard opponents again and we know life is not easy.

Mkhitaryan, who scored his first Premier League goal in the match, was brought down by Danny Rose in the 81st minute and had to be carried off.

"He was a very talented player, but now he has crossed that line that other players have to cross. And again it is all about continuing with that and trying to get the three points on Sunday". "We need to assess him".

"We had opportunities to score the second goal, we had that in the first half, we had that in the second half".

"I think we are a little bit disappointed".

On Sunday, he was his usual best, breaking up plays with a mix of tackles (10 tackles) and interceptions (4 interceptions) to disrupt Spurs' rhythm through the game.




Mourinho, who named an unchanged line-up from the side that drew 1-1 against Everton a week earlier, added: "I didn't change the team from Everton to this match because the team is playing well". "When we played Arsenal, it was important to win". We played to win, we deserved to win, but we didn't win.

But Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino said: "That is how we want to play".

United are now six points adrift of the top four in sixth, though will have been given a huge confidence boost going in the busy Christmas period following their hard-fought win over Spurs.

"Now (we need) to try and improve". Flashes of brilliance United showed they can kill off opponents by beating Zorya Luhansk 2-0 in Odessa on Thursday to advance to the last 32 of the Eurpoa League, a quality Mourinho conceded they must now show domestically.

"It looks like the next match [at Crystal Palace] is a "no", but it looks like it is nothing that is really risky or that needs surgery", the manager told Stewart Gardner. They go there in the last minute, goal.
