Tottenham Hotspur took advantage of Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood's failure to track back in their massive victory at Old Trafford.
Spurs ran off with maximum points after thrashing the Red Devils 6-1 with both Harry Kane and Son Heung-min scoring two goals in the game.
Jose Mourinho was said to have instructed his attackers to mount pressure on the helpless defenders and the strategy produced six superb goals despite conceding an early spot-kick.
Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka were busy for the most part of the game trying to stop their opponent from getting close to the keeper.
The tactical approach also saw the North London club's defenders enjoy their time in Manchester too with Serge Aurier finding the back of the net after the break.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg created the assist that gave him the chance to record his name on the scores sheet with plenty of space for the defender to operate.
Sergio Reguilon who recently joined them from Real Madrid also has an impressive outing as he is fast mastering the art of playing in the Premier League.
Daily Star quoting The Manchester Evening News reveals that both Reguilon and Aurier were instructed to press high on their counterparts.
It was suggested that Greenwood and Rashford would not assist their defenders and this gave Spurs’ full-backs the chance to press forward in the game.
Mourinho was also said to have predicted the starting XI Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would field, including fielding Eric Bailly ahead of Victor Lindelof, which helped their preparations.
Tottenham who had played two games before the Sunday's trip to Manchester displayed better than their hosts.
