UEFA Champions League
UEFA Europa League


Thanks for joining our commentary this evening. Until next time, goodbye.
Tottenham are next in action against Everton next Friday in the Premier League at Goodison Park. Manchester United take on Granada in the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final contest on Thursday at Old Trafford.
Manchester United record a comeback victory to defeat Tottenham 3-1 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in their Premier League clash. Son Heung-min put Spurs ahead in the first half after Edinson Cavani had a goal ruled out by VAR for a foul by Scott McTominay. However, United were dominant in the second half, beginning with Fred's equaliser in the 57th minute. Cavani did get his goal, converting with a sublime header from Mason Greenwood's cross. Greenwood secured the three points in stoppage time with a powerful drive. United are on course to finish second in the Premier League, while Spurs' Champions League hopes are hanging by a thread.
P. Pogba
90' + 6' Pogba steps past two challenges before finding Greenwood in space with a neat pass. The forward does the rest with a powerful finish.
M. Greenwood
90' + 6' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!! GREENWOOD HAMMERS HOME A THIRD!!!!! 3-1 UNITED!!!!! Greenwood surely secures the three points for the visitors with a right-footed blast from six yards. Pogba rolls an offload towards the forward on the edge of the box. He leaves Reguilon in his wake with a neat piece of skill to open up space for a shot. Greenwood beats Lloris for power with his effort.
90' + 4' Aurier launches a cross towards the box, but Maguire is well placed to clear the delivery. United have been on their mettle at the back.
90' + 3' Tottenham have not shown a great deal in the second half. They're slipping towards a damaging defeat to their Champions League ambitions here.
M. Sissoko
Yellow Card
90' + 2' Sissoko catches the ankle of Fred and goes into the book.
90' There will be six minutes of added time.
N. Matić
Bruno Fernandes
90' Fernandes is withdrawn for the visitors and is replaced by Matic for the closing stages.
88' Five of Cavani's seven Premier League goals for Manchester United have been headed; indeed, only Dominic Calvert-Lewin has scored more headed goals in this season's competition (six) than the Uruguayan.
86' Spurs have been second best in the second half, but have to conjure something special in the final third here to salvage a point from the contest.
84' OFF THE POST! Spurs are almost level as a corner from Lamela hits the head of Pogba and then Cavani before striking the left post. No white shirt can react to turn it goalwards before Son slices a strike wide of the target.
G. Bale
Lucas Moura
82' Lucas is withdrawn for Bale for the closing stages of the game. Mourinho needs a moment of magic from the Welshman.
81' WIDE! Aurier tries an ambitious effort from distance, but he drills the ball wide of the left post.
M. Greenwood
79' Greenwood latches on to an offload from Fernandes before bending a first-time cross into the box for Cavani to score.
E. Cavani
79' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! CAVANI HEADS UNITED IN FRONT!!!!!! 2-1!!!! The Red Devils take the lead with 11 minutes to play as Cavani scores with a sublime diving header. Fernandes releases Greenwood on the right flank and he bends a perfect cross on his left foot into the middle. Cavani drifts between Dier and Aurier before planting his effort past Lloris into the bottom-right corner.
E. Lamela
T. Ndombèlé
78' Lamela replaces Ndombele for the home side. Mourinho is trying to force the issue in the final third.

76' Hojbjerg brings down Pogba 25 yards from goal, handing United a free-kick in a dangerous position.

73' OFFSIDE! Aurier causes problems in the box as he latches on to a knockdown from Sissoko. The Ivorian steers an acrobatic strike over the bar from six yards out, although he is offside anyway.
73' SAVE! Kane collects a pass from Son and uses his quick feet to open up space for a low drive towards the near post. Henderson is alert to the danger and saves with his boot.
M. Greenwood

71' OVER! Aurier rises highest in the box to connect with Son's free-kick from the right flank, but he glances the ball over the bar.

69' Son makes a break down the left flank, but he tries one trick too many and loses the ball behind for a goal-kick under pressure from Wan-Bissaka.
68' Fred has scored just his second Premier League goal, and first since September 2018 v Wolves. He had attempted 73 league shots without scoring between the two strikes.
L. Shaw
Yellow Card
67' Shaw trips Moura on the charge and goes into the book.
67' BLOCK! Dier makes a vital interception at the back for the home side, diverting Pogba's backheel away from goal after the Frenchman latched onto Fernandes' cutback.
65' United are upping the ante in the final third and are applying serious pressure on the Spurs defence.
63' SAVE! Fernandes goes for goal from distance with a low strike after being released in the final third by Wan-Bissaka. His effort dips towards the bottom-right corner, but Lloris turns his strike past the post.
M. Sissoko
G. Lo Celso
61' Sissoko repalces Lo Celso in the Spurs midfield, which will give Ndombele licence to move forward.
60' SAVE! Henderson denies Son a second goal with a smart stop with his feet. Aurier bundles his way past Shaw and offloads the ball to his left. Son twists and turns to open up space for a strike, but his effort is repelled by the United keeper.
59' Pogba leads a surge into the final third for the visitors and find Fernandes on the right flank. The Portuguese goes for the offload across the edge of the box, but there's no one there to convert the opening.
57'  GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! FRED LEVELS FOR UNITED!!!! 1-1!!! The visitors notch an equaliser from an unlikely source as Fred is on the spot to fire home on the rebound. United work the ball intricately on the edge of the Spurs box. Fred releases the run of Cavani in the penalty area, but his left-footed strike is saved by Lloris. Fred is alive to the rebound and reacts first to steer the ball into the back of the net with his left foot.
56' SAVE! Pogba raids down the left flank and digs out a cross. Wan-Bissaka collects on the right flank and offloads back to McTominay. The Scot powers an effort towards goal, but Lloris beats it away.
55' Kane tries to thread the needle to release Son, but the forward halts his run and the ball travels out for a goal-kick. A rare misfire between the two players.
54' Son has scored three goals against Manchester United in the Premier League this season; the most by a player against the Red Devils in a single campaign since Sergio Agüero in 2014-15 (3).
52' Rodon makes a vital interception at the back to steer a dangerous low cross from Wan-Bissaka behind for a corner amid the lurking presence of Cavani.
51' Hojbjerg requires treatment after being caught on the knee by Fernandes. However, he is fine to continue for the home side.

Yellow Card
48' Fred goes into the book for chopping down Ndombele with a poor challenge.
48' Kane collects in an advanced position and goes for the chip at goal, but he floats his effort over the bar.
47' Rashford makes a break into the left inside channel, but he opts against the early strike. Spurs flood defenders back behind the ball and are able to crowd out the forward in the box.
46' We're back under way at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
United will be seething at the break, but they must keep their composure. It has been a tight contest and it will take a special effort for them to break down the Spurs backline to get back into the game in the second half.
Tottenham lead Manchester United 1-0 at the break in their Premier League clash after a controversial first half. Edinson Cavani believed that he had put the visitors ahead, only for VAR and the referee to overturn the goal for a foul by Scott McTominay on Son Heung-min in the build-up. Son then poured salt on the United wound by firing Jose Mourinho's men in front from close range after sublime work from Harry Kane and Lucas Moura in the final third.
45' + 2' Fernandes latches on to an offload from Pogba and sends a cross deep to the back post. Cavani rises in anticipation, but the delivery sails over his head.
45' The contest is becoming quite fiery on the field. Both sets of players are tetchy. It's close to boiling point.
45' There will be three minutes of added time.
43' Son has scored his 14th Premier League goal of the season, equalling his best return in the competition set in 2016-17.
E. Cavani
Yellow Card
41' Cavani collides with Rodon at the near post, sending the Spurs defender tumbling to the deck. The referee awards a foul to the home side and the Uruguayan is furious. He reacts by shoving Rodon on the floor and is booked by the referee.
Lucas Moura
40' Moura collects Kane's precise pass and plays a delightful ball to the back post for Son to score.
Son Heung-Min
40' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! SON FIRES TOTTENHAM AHEAD!!!!! 1-0!!! Son adds insult to injury to United as he converts with his left foot. Kane opens up the United defence with a sublime offload towards Moura in the right inside channel. The Brazilian places a low ball across the face of goal for Son to latch on to and then fire past Henderson low into the bottom-left corner.
38' Kane makes a neat turn to get away from Wan-Bissaka, but the England skipper scuffs his left-footed strike across the face of goal rather than on target.
37' Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is furious with the fourth official. He believes that his team have been wronged on the field.
36' DISALLLOWED GOAL! Cavani seemingly slots United in front after latching on to a sublime offload from Pogba. However, Spurs are furious as Son is caught in the face by a stray arm from McTominay. The referee is instructed to look at the screen at the side of the pitch by VAR. Chris Kavanagh deems that McTominay fouled Son in the build-up and the goal is chalked off.
33' Spurs haven't had a shot since the third minute, while United have had just one shot all match so far.
31' Rashford goes down on the edge of the box under pressure from Lo Celso after a probing run. However, the referee waves play on, much to the annoyance of the United forward.
29' Fred tries an ambitious cross-field pass to the left flank for the run of Pogba, but he floats his delivery straight out for a throw-in.
27' Moura has a run down the right flank, but his low cross is repelled by Shaw before the Spurs man fouls the midfielder in the process of trying to regain possession.
24' It has been a tactical affair thus far into the contest. Neither side are yielding an inch in the final third.
22' Moura peels away down the right flank and he delivers a cross to the near post that just evades the head of Son and goes into the palms of Henderson.
22' The game is compact in the middle of the park and both teams are having to work hard to find space.
20' Spurs work the ball down the left flank before Son launches a cross towards the middle that McTominay has to deflect behind for a corner.
S. McTominay
Yellow Card
18' McTominay scythes down Ndombele on the charge down the left flank. The Scot goes into the book for his challenge.
16' BLOCK! Pogba nods a long ball down towards Cavani, who tees up Rashford to strike in the right inside channel. He unleashes an effort at goal, but Dier gets across just in time to deflect it wide of the right post.
14' Maguire tries to launch a ball forward for Cavani, but the Uruguayan is caught offside in the final third.
12' Fred makes a burst forward down the left flank, but he slips at the vital moment and Aurier sweeps away the danger.
10' Lo Celso whips a low cross into the box from the right flank, but it's an easy one for Shaw to clear for the visitors.
10' Lindelof makes an important header at the near post to send Moura's cross away from Kane and behind for a Tottenham corner.
8' Aurier and Pogba collide down the right flank, but the Ivorian does not get a free-kick after the two jostle for possession. He stares down the referee with an incredulous look.
7' Hojbjerg brings down Fernandes in the middle of the park, handing a free-kick to the visitors. There have been a couple of niggly fouls in the opening minutes.
5' Rashford lines up a cross from the right flank, but his delivery travels away from Cavani in the box and out for a goal-kick.
3' SCUFF! Son latches on to a loose ball on the edge of the United box as Moura's corner is cleared. However, the South Korean can only miscue his effort over the bar.
2' OVER! Lo Celso and Son combine in the final third to tee up Moura for a strike, but his blast is diverted over the bar by Shaw.
1' We're under way at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. 
Having beaten Manchester United 6-1 earlier this season, Spurs are looking to record their first league double over the Red Devils since the 1989-90 season under Terry Venables.
United have made four changes to their side that beat Granada last time out in the Europa League. Cavani spearheads the attack in place of Greenwood, who drops to the bench. Henderson returns between the posts in place of De Gea. Daniel James misses out and is replaced by Fred, allowing Pogba to push further forward alongside Fernandes and Rashford.
Spurs have made three changes to their side from the draw with Newcastle last time out. Aurier comes into the fold to replace Tanganga, who drops to the bench. Dier gets a recall in the middle of the backline as Davinson Sanchez misses out. Son also gets the start in place of Vinicius in the final third.
MANCHESTER UNITED SUBS: David de Gea, Juan Mata, Mason Greenwood, Amad Diallo, Alex Telles, Axel Tuanzebe, Nemanja Matic, Brandon Williams, Donny van de Beek.
MANCHESTER UNITED (4-2-3-1): Dean Henderson; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw; Scott McTominay, Fred; Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford; Edinson Cavani.
TOTTENHAM SUBS: Toby Alderweireld, Harry Winks, Gareth Bale, Erik Lamela, Joe Hart, Moussa Sissoko, Dele Alli, Japhet Tanganga, Carlos Vinicius.
TOTTENHAM (4-2-3-1): Hugo Lloris; Serge Aurier, Joe Rodon, Eric Dier, Sergio Reguilon; Tanguy Ndombele, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg; Giovani Lo Celso, Lucas Moura, Son Heung-min; Harry Kane.
Manchester United put forward a solid performance during the week to take the upper hand in their Europa League contest against Granada. Goals from Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes were enough for the victory, sustaining the momentum from their Premier League comeback win over Brighton and Hove Albion. The Red Devils can put distance between themselves and the chasing pack for a top-four place with a win this afternoon, and place a huge dent in Spurs' hopes in the process.
Results elsewhere this weekend have not gone in favour of Tottenham, putting pressure on Jose Mourinho's men to respond. On their return to Premier League action last week, Harry Kane's brace had put them on course to defeat Newcastle, but Joe Willock's late strike denied Spurs the victory on the road. The north London outfit now need to find a win against United, who have been strong away from home this term.
Good afternoon and welcome to the live commentary of the Premier League clash between Tottenham and Manchester United at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
