Manchester United missed several fantastic chances to wrap up three points against Totteham Hotspur during a frustrating afternoon.
Louis van Gaal‘s side tired later on and could have lost in the end but a positive first half was where United threw the game away.
Robin van Persie inexplicably tried to take an extra touch when faced with Hugo Lloris whilst Juan Mata‘s free-kick hit the post before the rebound was scrambled away.
Phil Jones had a goal disallowed before both Mata and van Persie blazed over from close range in the second half. On another day it could have been a very different outcome but United will go again against Stoke on New Year’s Day.
