Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United fought to a 1-1 draw as Premier League football returned to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium tonight.

The match started at a testimonial pace, as both sets of players cam to terms with their return to action, the lack of atmosphere and the heavy rain that made for quick and difficult conditions.

Steven Bergwijn sparked the game into life for the hosts, putting them in front after a meandering run around Harry Maguire and a shot that David de Gea should have saved but could only parry into the net.

United were much better in the second half, particularly after the introduction of Mason Greenwood and Paul Pogba.

The latter won a late penalty for United after superb work in the corner of the pitch to beat Eric Dier, which Bruno Fernandes then converted.

Spurs survived a couple of late scares to claim a draw.

Referee Jonathan Moss overturned another penalty award after a VAR review and an injury-time shot from Greenwood went just wide of the post. Both teams stay in the same position in the table, with United in fifth and Spurs in eighth.
