ENGLAND – MARCUS RASHFORD ensures his former boss Jose Mourinho has an unhappy return to Old Trafford.
The 22-year-old forward scored twice to secure a much needed victory for his team Manchester United and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Mourinho, now in charge of Tottenham, was sacked by United just under a year ago.
His side was behind after only six minutes with a powerful effort from Rashford that beat Paulo Gazzaniga in goal.
Spurs levelled in the 39th with a lovely finish from Dele Alli.
Both sides went into the half with one goal apiece, but within ten minutes of the resumption Rashford was fouled by Moussa Sissoko and the forward made no mistake from the penalty spot.
Manchester move up to sixth spot and play City on Saturday.
Liverpool demolished Everton to remain on top of the Premiership on 43 points.
Leicester and Wolves advance to second and fifth respectively after wins while Chelesa remain fourth on 29 points.
