Spurs stage remarkable comeback to stun Man United, as fans point fingers at Erik ten Hag
In the Premier League clash at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Manchester United aimed to solidify their position in the top four, following their triumph in the FA Cup semi-final last week.
However, Tottenham Hotspur delivered a remarkable second-half display to shock the Red Devils.
Meanwhile, Spurs were looking forward to delivering a significantly better performance following their dreadful display at St. James' Park, where Newcastle United defeated them 6-1.
The loss against the Magpies marked the conclusion of Cristian Stellini's brief tenure as the interim manager.
At present, Spurs are under the guidance of ex-player Ryan Mason, who assumed the role following the sacking of Jose Mourinho in 2021.
During a match played under the floodlights in North London, United began strongly, with Jadon Sancho putting them in the lead within seven minutes.
With only a minute to go before half-time, Marcus Rashford doubled the lead, leaving the Spurs players to face boos once again for their inadequate performance.
During the second half, Spurs appeared to be a completely transformed team as they began aggressively and started creating some promising opportunities.
They eventually managed to score a goal through full-back Pedro Porro in the 56th minute.
With 78 minutes gone, Son Heung Min equalized for Spurs after perfectly tapping in a cross from Harry Kane. After an electrifying second half, the match finished 2-2.

Fans of United expressed their dissatisfaction on social media regarding the substitutions made by Erik ten Hag.
One said: “Love Erik ten Hag but those subs were horrendous…”
Another tweeted: “Erik Ten Hag sold this game with this stupid sub.”
A third fan added: “Erik ten Hag making stupid mistakes over and over again. His sub making is so poor now.”
Someone else wrote: “The subs made by Erik ten Hag have been awful. Changed the game in the wrong way.”
Whilst a fifth commented: “Erik Ten Hag really needs to improve on his subs! They’re costing us in some games.”
Following the draw, Spurs climbed up to the sixth position in the Premier League standings.
Spurs are now preparing for another challenging match as they travel to Anfield on Sunday to take on Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool, who are aiming to make a late push for a top-four spot.
