    Manchester United 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur - 79 mins: Spurs seem to be fighting back and are certainly starting to pose more of a threat.

    Manchester United 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur - 83 min: Chriss Smalling makes a cracking tackle just outside of the five-yard box to dispossess Chadli. After his clearance, the ball falls back into Tottenham possession and a beautiful long, diagonal ball from the right is played in to Eriksen on the left. He takes it into the penalty box but the angle is too tight and his shot is easily saved by Romero.

    Rooney celebrates United's goal - or Kyle Walker's should we say...

    FULL TIME: Manchester United 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur - And that's it. United survive Tottenham's late surge to mark their first game of the season with a win. 

    It's been a mediocre game but one that United took charge of after going one up. The result is all that matters but Louis Van Gaal's team has a long way to go. United had only one shot on target - which culminated in Walker's own goal. Kane was far from inspiring and never really threatened the United defense.

    Analysis: Depay stars on debut, Dier a concern for Spurs

    The IndependentSTAR PLAYERMemphis Depay: A joy to watch, particularly in the first half. United have wasted so much money over the last couple of years, but at £25million, Depay looks a shrewd investment. The pacy forward, playing as a number 10, always looked for the ball and was not scared of attempting a trick or running at defenders - exactly the kind of player the home fans at Old Trafford like to see.
