Things we learned from Tottenham v Man Utd 27 April 2023


A leading plus on the evening was Rashford adding to his ever-growing tally for the term. The forward netted his 29th United goal across all competitions with a finish that was also his 50th away from home, for the club. It’s already the best goalscoring campaign of his career so far, and his latest effort ensures he surpasses Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s tally of 28 in 2016/17 and Bruno Fernandes’s 28 from 2020/21, meaning he’s now scored more goals than any other Red in a single term since Robin van Persie netted 30 in his debut campaign of 2012/13. With seven games still to come in the league, and an FA Cup final, Marcus has a brilliant chance to match and better that number too.


Our travelling supporters were back in the capital after Sunday’s Wembley success and could be heard in strong voice over the course of the evening. Our fans in the ground went through the familiar repertoire of favourites, as well as noticeably referencing the recent transfer speculation between Tottenham forward Harry Kane and the Reds. ‘Harry Kane, we’ll see you in June’ was the light-hearted chant that could be heard in the stadium during the first half. Spurs’ no.10 showed his quality after half-time, setting up Son’s leveller after his blocked attempt led to his team’s first goal, scored by Porro.


Christian received warm applause from around the stadium when he was substituted in the 62nd minute. Our no.14 spent six-and-a-half years at Spurs and was a mainstay in Mauricio Pochettino’s impressive side of the mid-to-late 2010s. Tonight was his first appearance back at the home stadium of his former club since he departed in 2020, and his contributions across more than 300 outings in white were rightly recognised by the Tottenham supporters.
