- Jose Mourinho suffered his first defeat as Spurs manager at Old Trafford as Man United ran away with a 2-1 win
- Marcus Rashford hit a sensational brace to fire the Red Devils to victory
- Mourinho, however, suspended his abrasive nature as he took time out to congratulate United players
Jose Mourinho showed a touch of class just after Tottenham's 2-1 defeat to Man United on Wednesday night, December 4, at Old Trafford.
This was Mourinho's first defeat since succeeding Mauricio Pochettino at Spurs and his first meeting against United since his sacking back in December 2018.
A sensational brace by Marcus Rashford is all the Red Devils needed to damage the London club, with Dele Alli's stunner turning out as a mere consolation.
"They had more emotion than us. You see for example, McTominay’s performance, the globality of his performance, he was dominant. He was dominant," Mourinho said after the match.
However, despite the heartbreak in the hands of his former team, the tactician made sure he congratulated every United player on their deserved win.
