Comments:

League position: 4th Manchester United had now taken 37 points for their home games in the Premier League in this season, more than any other team. They had now won nine of their last ten league games at Old Trafford. Wayne Rooney had now scored eight goals in his last nine starts against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League. Andreas Pereira became the 32nd player to play for United in the Premier League in 2014-15, more than any other team.

Comments:

League position: 7th Tottenham Hotspur were unbeaten in their last five meetings with Manchester United (all Premier League). This was the first time that Spurs had conceded three goals in the first-half of a Premier League game since their visit to West Bromwich Albion on 14 April 2014. On that occasion, after trailing 0-3, they recovered to force a 3-3 draw. Harry Kane had scored in each of his last six away games in the Premier League.
