CAVA BIEN Tottenham 1 Man Utd 3: Cavani & Greenwood strike late as early effort ruled out by VAR as Spurs’ top-four dreams crumble
JUSTICE for Edinson Cavani, revenge for Manchester United and a near-fatal blow to Tottenham’s hope of Champions League qualification.
Their rage was only worsened when Son stroked Spurs into the lead soon after - but a second-half fight-back earned Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men a fourth straight Premier League win.
Fred equalised and Cavani netted with a diving header from a gorgeous Mason Greenwood cross as United avenged their 6-1 defeat by Spurs back in October.
Not even the most optimistic United fan will imagine a late collapse from runaway leaders Manchester City - but Solskjaer’s team are delaying the coronation of their rivals with some strong late-season form.
This match was far more important for Spurs - who are now adrift in seventh on a weekend when their top-four rivals West Ham, Chelsea and Liverpool all won.
Then Tanguy Ndombele almost out-did Arsenal’s Alex Lacazette - the undisputed king of the over-scream - as he reacted at high volume to get Scott McTominay booked for an innocuous challenge.
What followed was excellent from United, but ultimately irrelevant - Fred feeding Pogba who showed happy feet before rolling a pass to Cavani, who found the net.
VAR Craig Pawson, a sensitive old soul, felt Son had been fouled. Nobody who has ever played football can honestly have felt the same.
It was at least the third time this weekend we’d all imagined we’d just seen the worst VAR decision of the season. But it’s progress, innit?
It was inevitable that Son would score.
Marcus Rashford then joined the theatrics after a challenge from Gio Lo Celso.
United staged one decent attack before their disallowed goal - a lofted pass from Bruno Fernandes, a Pogba knock-down, a Cavani pass and Marcus Rashford’s shot deflected wide.
Then that fateful flick of the fingers from McTominay after Son had tried to drag him back.
Spurs lacked ambition and tossed away yet more points from a winning position - which has been the story of their frustrating season.
In truth, though, there was not enough ambition or quality about Jose Mourinho’s side.
The Son-McTominay incident had hardly been out of character in a first half which was low on tempo, low on quality and high rolling around and screaming.
Mourinho was fuming early on when Serge Aurier went in heavily on Paul Pogba, who appeared to respond with an elbow.
United had been seething with rage ever since a Cavani ‘opener’ had been ruled out because of a supposed foul by Scott McTominay on a theatrical Son Heung-Min.
