Two minutes later, Bruno Fernandes almost took his side two goals ahead of Tottenham Hotspur but the goalkeeper’s best friend saved Spurs.

Victor Lindelof was shown a yellow card a minute later for kicking Harry Kane on halfway.

Ryan Mason introduced Dejan Kulusevski into the fray replacing Richarlison in the 61st minute.

Erik Ten Hag also brought on Anthony Martial for Jason Sancho and Fred for Christian Eriksen.

10 minutes later, Tyrell Malacia came on to replace Aaron Wan Bissaka and that made Dalot switch back to the right.

Wout Weghorts also came on for Brazilian International Anthony Santos.

Two minutes before Spurs netted the equalizer on the 79th minute through Heung Min Son, Arnaut Danjuma was brought on to replace the man who scored the first goal Pedro Porro while Ben Davies came on for Ivan Perisic.

The Son-Kane partnership worked magic in the 79th minute after the Englishman sent a dangerous ball into the box and the South Korean found a way to get it into the net.

Ryan Mason made his last permitted substitution in the game as Japhet Tangaga replaced Heung Min Son.

4 minutes were added as additional time in the second 45 and Casemiro tried to drag Manchester United into the lead.

Shaw sent a wonderful cross into the area which found the head of Casemiro but he didn’t do enough to place it at goal as the ball went over the bar.

Both sides should be content with the result although Manchester United definitely would be hitting themselves hard for allowing a two goal advantage slip.

Following the draw, Manchester United sit 4th on the Premier League table with two games outstanding while Tottenham Hotspur sit 5th, 6 points behind Manchester United after Matchday 33.
