Minute   Description
90' +3 M. Darmian enters the game and replaces A. Young.
United have made a late defensive change, with Matteo Darmian coming on to replace Young in a like-for-like swap.
90' +2 Tottenham are piling as many bodies forward as possible as they desperately try to find a way back into the game at this late stage. United have every player back to defend, however, and at the moment they're comfortably managing to keep their opponents at bay.
90' The fourth official has indicated that there will be three minutes of added time.
89' What an opportunity for Lingard to wrap up the win! After dealing with the free-kick, United quickly burst forward on a great counter-attack. Lingard breaks into the Tottenham box and only has Lloris to beat after getting the better of Eriksen, but he completely mishits his strike and sends it high over the crossbar.
88' Tottenham win themselves a free-kick just inside the United half of the pitch, and every available body is thrown into the penalty area. It's fired in by Eriksen and almost picks out a team-mate, but Smalling is there to get a head on the ball at the vital moment.
87' It's all United at the moment as they patiently hold onto the ball inside the Tottenham half of the pitch. Unsurprisingly, they don't seem in too much of a hurry to get the ball into the box, with the visitors desperately trying to regain possession.
85' Another Tottenham attacking move ends with Aurier over on the right flank, as the Ivorian curls a second dangerous cross into the hosts' box. Once again it sails over to Alli, who can't get the better of Bailly and loses out to the centre-back.
83' Tottenham quickly push forward from the restart as they try to find an equaliser. Aurier swings in a dangerous cross from the right wing that manages to pick out Alli, but the attacking midfielder is penalised for climbing all over Bailly, much to his annoyance.
81' A. Martial has scored a goal for Manchester United! Assist by R. Lukaku.
GOAL! United have finally found an opener! A thumping goal-kick from De Gea picks out Lukaku, who rises high and nods the ball down towards Martial. A simple flick-on comfortably finds the Frenchman, who breaks into the box and fires a bouncing strike past Lloris.
Lukaku did well to rise high above Alderweireld and pick out Martial, but Tottenham really should have done much better defensively. They had performed really well up until then but completely fell asleep.
80' Aurier skips into the right-hand side of the hosts' penalty area and latches onto a clever pass forward. He then tries to tee up Alli in the middle of the box, but he's immediately flagged offside and a promising attacking move comes to a disappointing end.
