Tottenham Hotspur produced a sensational comeback to secure a 2-2 draw with Manchester United in the Premier League last night. Despite a poor first-half performance, Spurs rallied and could have won the game. Goals from Pedro Porro and Heung-Min Son ensured they shared the spoils with United.
For Tottenham and their new interim boss Ryan Mason, this was the first step towards recovery after a devastating loss at Newcastle United at the weekend. Tottenham legend Jermaine Jenas watched the game in the BT Sport studio and praised the goal from new signing Pedro Porro. Jenas stated that Porro’s goal was technically sensational and highlighted the difficulty in executing the shot.
Porro had a slow start to the game but his qualities started to show in the second half. The pacey wing-back showed his class with the finish and will be looking to build on this performance. Porro was never signed as a defensive full-back; his primary role is to help Tottenham’s attacking play, and against Manchester United, he did just that.
Tottenham will be pleased with the point, and Porro will also be satisfied with his latest effort. This is a good platform for Porro to build on, and with Mason at the helm, he will be hoping to get the best out of his new signing between now and the end of the season.
Overall, Tottenham’s comeback against Manchester United will give them much-needed confidence as they look to finish the season strongly. It was a resilient performance, and one that showcased the determination and quality of this Tottenham side.
