Pictures: Manchester United 3-0 Tottenham – Knock-out blow from Rooney

by Richard Laverty

Manchester United put in one of their best, and most timely, performances of the season to win 3-0 against Tottenham Hotspur.

At the start of a run which will see United face the three teams above them in the league, United dominated from start to finish and had the game sealed thanks to three first half goals.

The win means United remain one point off Arsenal and remarkably close the gap to second place to just two points after Manchester City’s defeat on Saturday.

Marouane Fellaini struck early on to put United ahead before Michael Carrick placed a great header into the corner soon after to give United a cushion. Wayne Rooney thrashed his way through the Spurs defence to make it three and the home side were out of sight by the break.

Here’s a selection of the best images from Sunday’s emphatic victory:
