Comments:

League position: 2nd Manchester United had now kept a clean sheet in all of their first five home games of a Premier League season for the first time since 2007-08. They had now kept six consecutive home clean sheets in the league for the first time since March 2010. The Red Devils had now won their opening five home games in the Premier League for first time since 1994-95 Manchester United manager José Mourinho said: "I like a lot of the performance independent of the result. If the result is 0-0 or 1-1 my feelings with the players and the team would be the same because they gave absolutely everything, every ball was like the most important ball of their career, the concentration and focus was there and we cannot forget the quality of the team we were playing against."

League position: 3rd Tottenham Hotspur failed to score for the second time in their last 18 league and cup games. Spurs had now lost consecutive games in all competitions, for the first time since 16 February 2017. They had won their six preceding away games in the Premier League. Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino said: "It is very painful for our players, for everyone. I think it was an even match. We lose in an action that should have been fixed before. I think it's very painful but that is football and I feel very proud. The effort was fantastic. The performance can always be better, but I think we compete and we fight a lot."
