Dele Alli equalises vs Manchester United after brilliant flick


Jose Mourinho's return to Old Trafford did not look as if it was going to plan in the first half. 

Marcus Rashford beat Paulo Gazzaniga at his near post - and in truth, the goalkeeper should have done better - to put Manchester United 1-0 up. 

However, with five minutes until half-time, it was Dele Alli who once again came to his new manager's rescue with a fine goal. 

After a decent save from David de Gea off Serge Aurier, the playmaker completed a deft flick over his shoulder.

It was a piece of brilliance and seconds later, he'd found the back of the net. 

Check out the equaliser below: 

Referee Paul Tierney was quick to put his hand to his ear but the goal survived a VAR check for what would have been a harsh handball and Spurs were level. 

United might have felt the score at the interval was not really a reflection on the opening 45 minutes. 

If they were expecting a classic Mourinho team, they didn't get one.

Spurs set up with an attacking line-up but left themselves exposed and frankly, were poor in the opening exchanges. 

United dominated and enjoyed eight shots to the north Londoners' three. 

Yet thanks to a piece of magic from Alli, they headed down the tunnel all square.
