Martial scores late victor to down Spurs

Harry Kane will miss the trip to Man United with a hamstring injury

Jose Mourinho heaped praise on Anthony Martial after the striker came off the bench to fire Manchester United to a 1-0 victory over Tottenham to get the Red Devils' title bid back on track.

With nine minutes remaining Martial latched on to Lukaku's flick-on to score.

The forward came on and netted the victor in the 81st minute at Old Trafford to hand Mourinho's men all three points as Martial netted for the fourth time as a substitute this season.

A smattering of jeers had greeted Mourinho's decision to bring on Martial in place of Marcus Rashford, but the change paid dividends as United belatedly showed a cutting edge.

Spurs were without injured top-scorer Harry Kane, and the visitors struggled to create much in his absence during a slow and uneventful opening half an hour.

London's new Toxicity Charge (T-Charge ) is already making a difference to air quality on the streets of the capital. Khan said that this was "the time to stand up and join the battle to clear the toxic air we are forced to breathe".

'I was surprised but I was happy about his words because it is not easy for the players to recognise and admit [why they lost],' said Mourinho, according to Goal.com. "Today, every ball looked like the last ball of their careers".

United's loss to Huddersfield leaves them five points behind local rivals Manchester City, who top the Premier League table. The two strikers were up against unbelievable central defenders. some of the best in Europe.

It turned out to be a masterstroke from Mourinho, with Martial keeping his nerve to score in the 81st minute, and the attacker sent a clear message to his manager after the win.

"He was against three very good defenders but they'd had a hard match for 70 minutes".
