Premiership champions Manchester United recorded their first victory of the season beating Tottenham Hotspurs . United having the lion's share of possession dominated the match throughout . Spurs looked to get past United on three occasions but on 68 minutes United's new Portuguese signing Nani blasted a scorcher from almost 30 yards and Spurs keeper Robinson had no answer to it. Spurs were denied two clear cut penalties in which replays clearly shows that Wes Brown had handled the ball in the box and one erratic Vidic tackle. Dimitar Berbatov was a major threat to United but he was unable to put the ball behind the net . This win will pull United out of the relegation zone and they have 5 points in hand.

Final Score:

Man United 1 Tottenham 0


Nani 68'
