    That's all from over here.

    But there's plenty more Premier League action going on if you click here.

  2. 'We deserved more'

    Manchester United 1-0 Tottenham

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino speaking to Sky Sports: "It was an even game. It was a shame to lose. The chances were for one and then the other. It was a tough game and I think we deserved more. I feel proud of the effort and it was unlucky that in the last 10 minutes we conceded our goal. It was our mistake.

    "It is important to be calm and in football these type of mistakes happen. We must fix that and move on. We cannot change the result.

    "We contained United very well. Always we were in control of the game. We had the ball but it is true we did not create enough chances to score. In this type of game if you make a mistake you lose."

    Asked if his side missed injured striker Harry Kane, he said: "If Dele Alli had scored now the question would be different. It is always about the result. You are always going to miss your main striker but it is not fair to talk about Harry Kane."

  3. 'The bad shots can be the most beautiful'

    Manchester United

    More from Jose Mourinho: "We all feel we have to win every match so that's why I felt disappointed at Huddersfield. It looked like we didn't know that every point is a precious point.

    "Today, every ball looked like the last ball of their careers.

    On Anthony Martial: "Sometimes he starts the match and his contribution is good but he doesn't score.

    "I don't understand some reactions when people question 'are they Red Devils'? The two strikers were up against amazing central defenders. some of the best in Europe.

    "Martial scores with a bad shot, but the bad shots can be the most beautiful.

    "To play well against a very, very good team feels even better."

  4. 'We controlled them well'

    Manchester United 1-0 Tottenham

    Manchester United

    Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho speaking to Sky Sports: “That was difficult, it could have been a draw. Both teams were trying to win but both knew the opponent was strong.

    "Apart from Dele Alli’s chance, we controlled them well. It was tactically difficult for both and it was well refereed. It was strong, aggressive.

    "We knew if we had one defensive mistake we could lose and that's what happened to them.

    "We tried and we deserved the victory."

  5. 'The manager told me to find space'

    Manchester United 1-0 Tottenham

    Manchester United

    Anthony Martial

    Manchester United's Anthony Martial who came off the bench to score the winner, speaking to Sky Sports: "The manager told me to find space. I know that Lukaku is good with his head and I found the space and scored."

    "We lost the last game. It was important for us to win and I am happy to score."

    Asked if he can push manager Jose Mourinho for a regular starting place, Martial said: "No. Me I want to play. I don't want to be on the bench. Rashford has been good too and the manager wants to give us a chance."

  6. Post update

    Manchester United 1-0 Tottenham

    United recover from their defeat by Huddersfield to maintain their 100% record this season at Old Trafford.

    They have also kept a clean sheet in each of their first five home league games of a season for the first time since 2007-08.

    Spurs have lost consecutive games in all competitions for the first time since February.

  7. 'Very unlike us'

    Manchester United 1-0 Tottenham

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham defender Ben Davies speaking to Sky Sports: "It is more an annoyance. It was a disappointing goal to concede. It was very unlike us. We are just disappointed we didn't keep a clean sheet and come away with a decent point.

    "We don't concede goals like that. We switched off.

    "It is a tough place to come. We were solid and I thought we were going to keep a clean sheet. We didn't concede too many chances."

  8. 'We can challenge for the title'

    Manchester United 1-0 Tottenham

    Manchester United

    Nemanja Matic

    Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic speaking to Sky Sports: "It was important for us. We were playing against one of the best teams in the league, thanks to this guy [points at Anthony Martial] we managed to score and win this game.

    "Congratulations to the opponents, they were very good today. The fans enjoyed it and now we've got three points.

    "They had more of the ball in the first half but we had more chances than them. They play great football but it's the result that matters in the end. If we continue like this we can challenge for the title.

    "It's important to keep our record at home. The fans were great for 90 minutes. I hope we continue like this as these games are so important."

    Ahmed ashour: Lukaku was ineffective and still had a goal saved, hit the post and assisted the goal.

    Benjamin: From that performance I feel like city should just be given the title now. Neither side played like contenders. From a bitterly disappointed Spurs fan.

    Majestic Whine: I'm no expert but it felt to me like Harry Kane's team were lacking something in the final third.

  10. Young England recall?

    Manchester United 1-0 Tottenham

    John Murray

    BBC football commentator for 5 live Sport

    It wouldn't surprise me if Ashley Young is named in the England squad next week based on recent performances.

  11. 'It's worked for Mourinho'

    Manchester United 1-0 Tottenham

    Ally McCoist

    Former Scotland striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    It has certainly worked for Jose Mourinho. Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial certainly made an impact on the game.

    Dele Alli missed that chance and then it was the simplest of goals from Manchester United.

    Martial a la rescousse!

  13. 'Young well thought of'

    Absolutely deserved (standing ovation from Old Trafford.)

    What a terrific reception. Ashley Young is clearly very well thought of here.

    Gary Flintoff

    BBC Radio 5 live reporter at Old Trafford

    The Manchester United fans know this is a massive result after taking one point from the games against Liverpool and Huddersfield. They are in great voice now in terrible conditions.

  15. SUBSTITUTION

    Manchester United 1-0 Tottenham

    Ashley Young gets a huge cheer as he clears the ball out of Christian Eriksen's path.

    That was Young's last action of the game. He's off and Matteo Darmian comes on.

    I reckon Young has been United's best player today.

  16. 'Lingard couldn't control it'

    Manchester United 1-0 Tottenham

    Ally McCoist

    Former Scotland striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    Jesse Lingard just couldn't get it under control. He was clean through and even though Christian Eriksen was hot on his heels, Lingard was always going to get there first.

    That was a good chance though.

    Three minutes added on.

  18. Post update

    Manchester United 1-0 Tottenham

    Christian Eriksen floats in a free-kick and David de Gea jumps for it and nearly gets impeded by his own player again - this time it's Chris Smalling.

    Dudes - talk to each other.

    Now United surge forward...Jesse Lingard goes one-on-one with Hugo Lloris but lashes over.

  19. Post update

    Manchester United 1-0 Tottenham

    Spurs only have about five minutes to find a goal and maintain their 100% away record in the league this season.

    Toby Alderweireld punts forward but no white shirts can reach the ball.
