A smart stop from David De Gea on the quarter hour stopped Emmanuel Adebayor early on. Spurs were denied a 36th minute goal when Emmanuel Adebayor was spotted handballing the ball before sticking it past David De Gea. Despite being second best for most of the first half, Wayne Rooney headed an Ashley Young corner past Friedel to hand the Red Devils a vital halftime lead. The Lillywhites were sucker-punched on the hour as Luka Modric fell asleep from a United throw, and the result was Ashley Young’s acrobatic finish at the back post. Manchester United went 3-up in the 68th minute with a stunner from Ashley Young, who collected an Evra pass 25-yards from goal before whacking a beauty into the far top corner. Tottenham fans finally had something to shout about in the 85th minute when, after a loose Giggs pass, sub Jermain Defoe placed a 25-yarder past De Gea for 1-3.
