Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s first Premier League goal gave Manchester United a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday evening, their first win in four Premier League matches.
United were rewarded for a dominant first-half display when Henrikh Mkhitaryan emphatically finished off Ander Herrera’s through-ball on 29 minutes.
In so doing, Mkhitaryan became the first Armenian, and the 96th different nationality, to score in the competition.
Wanyama had a great chance to level after the break, but his free header from six yards went wide.
Paul Pogba twice almost gave United a much-needed second goal but was denied by the bar, then Hugo Lloris.
The home team held on, despite Mkhitaryan’s departure on a stretcher, to move within three points of Spurs, who are fifth.
