Man Utd took probably 3 shots at goal and scored from all three. Spurs were the better team in the first half but Wayne Rooney's header just before the half burst their bubble. And Adebayor's goal off a back heel was disallowed because he handballed a shot by Louis Saha that was actually going into goal before his meddling.
Spurs defense was dire throughout. Kyle Walker allowed Rooney to front him for the first goal. Nani was allowed to run unchallenged after a throw in to find an unmarked Ashley Young who volleyed his shot home. Spurs suffered a third setback after they left yards and seconds out in front of Young to curl a beautiful bulls-eye past Friedel. At the other end David De Gea rehabbing his image bringing off a smart save to deny Adebayor. Jermaine Defoe's strike finally put Spurs on the board but the story is Utd going toe to toe with City in that title chase which looks like going down to the wire. The two sides meet on April 30th.
Harry Redknapp has not received much joy since his tax evasion trial returned a not guilty verdict. Two comprehensive losses which featured glaring defensive lapses have done no good for his England pretensions. The FA has decided to hold off on their decision till later and its list of candidates include two of Chelsea's coaching targets, Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho. Talk about a clash between club and country.
