Gary Neville is well aware how Manchester United’s 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur could be huge in the context of this season.
Man United were finally able to see out a 1-0 win and held onto the lead having failed to do so against Everton, Arsenal and Stoke City.
The win sees United go just three points behind Spurs and six behind city in fourth, so it could very much be a match which serves as a momentum shift for Jose Mourinho’s side.
A much needed win!!

Had we lost, we would have been nine points behind Spurs and city. That wouldn’t have ended our top four hopes but it would have left us chasing their tails. Instead, we’re now in a position to put pressure on both clubs and mount our own top four push and start to hopefully string a few wins together.
We’ve had so many performance this year where we’ve deserved three points but have only come away with a draw – not today, not against Spurs. We’ve got the win and now heading into games against Crystal Palace and West Brom we should have some much needed momentum.
