MANCHESTER United staged a superb fightback to shatter Tottenham’s top-four bid with a 3-1 win, while West Ham climbed to fourth place in the Premier League as the revitalise­d Jesse Lingard inspired a 3-2 victory.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side trailed to Son Heungmin’s first half strike, but United scored three times after the break through Fred, Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood.

Second-placed United’s fourth successive league win avenged their embarrassi­ng 6-1 home defeat against Tottenham in October.

At the London Stadium, Lingard struck twice in the first half to maintain his remarkable form since joining West Ham on loan from Manchester United.

The 28-year-old has been reborn with West Ham, scoring eight times and earning a recall to the England team.
