Manchester United were behind after a minute and reduced to 10 men but still managed a 3-1 victory in a pulsating clash at White Hart Lane that ended Tottenham's 100% start to the Barclays Premier League season.

Jermain Defoe's acrobatic strike opened the scoring but United have a history of comebacks against Spurs - 5-2 last season and 5-3 eight years ago - and they levelled through Ryan Giggs' free-kick.

Anderson drilled home before the break and despite playing the last half an hour without Paul Scholes, Wayne Rooney sealed victory with a cool finish before the end.
