Kyle Walker’s own-goal in the 22nd minute was enough to ensure the Red Devils avoided a repeat of an opening day defeat in the 2014-15 campaign as they squeezed past the North Londoners.
Ahead of the game there was a lot of talk surrounding Spurs striker Harry Kane, who is reportedly a transfer target for United manager Louis van Gaal, and how he would fare playing against a makeshift centre-half in Daley Blind.
The England international was a threat during the early stages as the visitors began the game well but his impact on proceedings wore off following Walker’s mistake as hosts were buoyed by the goal and were the better team for the rest of the first half and the majority of the second period .
In the video clip below [via Full Time Devils], Kane’s performance left a few United supporters questioning as to whether the 22-year-old, who bagged 21 league goals last season, is worth the mooted £40million price-tag.
