Manchester United passed what Sir Alex Ferguson dubbed their biggest test of the Barclays Premier League season with a brilliant counter-attacking 3-1 win at Tottenham.

Wayne Rooney's 23rd goal of the campaign and a spectacular double from Ashley Young sealed an ominous smash-and-grab raid at White Hart Lane that moved the champions back to within two points of leaders Manchester City.

Substitute Jermain Defoe netted a consolation for Spurs, who saw Emmanuel Adebayor controversially denied a goal when the game was still scoreless as their 11-year winless run against United stretched to 26 matches.
