It all seemed too easy in the end. Spurs go a goal down after five minutes thanks to Samir Nasri’s strike – and some shocking defending. Arsenal fans start to count their chickens and Manchester United supporters get that ‘squeaky bum’ feeling ahead of Monday night’s game with Aston Villa.
But three goals in seven minutes from Clint Dempsey (75), Jermain Defoe (79) and Gareth Bale (82) means Manchester United
could should be crowned Barclays Premier League champions for the 20th time if they beat the Villains on Monday night.
The win left Spurs in fifth – two points behind Arsenal in third – with a game in hand. And here’s how they did it.
1. Clint Dempsey sneaks in to draw Spurs level on 75 minutes
2. A Jermain Defoe screamer has Tottenham (and United) fans in raptures
3. Gareth Bale caps a ‘Man of the Match’ performance to secure the win.
