Young double helps United down Spurs

Manchester United moved back to within two points of Manchester City at top of the Premier League table with a 3-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.

The first half saw Tottenham controlling possession yet going down to Wayne Ronney headed goal from a corner in the first half extra time.
The second half then saw former Aston Villa player Ashley Young scoring twice, scoring his first with an acrobatic volley before curling a wonderful shot into the top corner for his second.
Jermain Defoe's late goal in the closing stages could only be a consolation for Spurs. Spurs would definitely feel the pressure pilling as their grip on the automatic Champions League spot is being jeopardised by Arsenal's recent good run of form.
