anchester United heaped more misery on their former boss Jose Mourinho after striking back from behind to claim a 3-1 Premier League win at Tottenham on Sunday.
Second-half strikes from Fred, Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood cemented United in second place in the table and cast Mourinho’s stuttering side further adrift of the top four.
Spurs are now six points behind fourth-placed West Ham – who beat Leicester 3-2 – and sliding close to the point where Mourinho may begin fearing for his future.
Elsewhere on Sunday, Arsenal returned to the top half with a 3-0 win at Sheffield United while Allan Saint-Maximin came off the bench to ease Newcastle’s relegation worries with a 2-1 win over Burnley at Turf Moor.
On Friday, Fulham suffered another big blow in their fight against relegation as they lost to Wolves. On Saturday, leaders Man City were beaten by ten-man Leeds at the Etihad. Liverpool fought back to beat Aston Villa 2-1, while Chelsea got back to winning ways with a 4-1 rout of Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
Gameweek 31 concludes on Monday night as West Brom take on Southampton and Brighton host Everton.
