Dele Alli equalises vs Manchester United after brilliant flick

FBL-ENG-PR-MAN UTD-TOTTENHAM

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.
