A month or two ago Spurs would have won hands down in this area be­cause United were play­ing with­out confi dence. Harry Kane ( pic­tured), Dele Alli and Son He­ung- min would all have been on José Mour­inho’s the­o­ret­i­cal shop­ping list. But United have done some catch­ing up in re­cent weeks, with Mar­cus Rash­ford in par­tic­u­lar show­ing his value and Romelu Lukaku be­com­ing more eff ec­tive. While Spurs are still more of a hand­ful for de­fences, due to Kane’s ac­cu­racy, Alli’s el­e­gant sim­plic­ity and Son’s clev­erly chan­nelled en­ergy, perhaps a re­vived United de­serve the benefi t of the doubt.
