Tottenham fans love what Pape Matar Sarr did after scoring in win over Manchester United

Tottenham star Pape Matar Sarr took inspiration from Marcus Rashford when celebrating his first goal for the club.

The Senegal international signed for Spurs in 2021, before featuring in 11 Premier League games last season.

However he appears set for a big role under Ange Postecoglou, where he has featured in both of their top-flight matches so far.

He came off the bench in their 2-2 draw against Brentford last week in the club’s Premier League opener.

And Postecoglou opted to name him in his starting XI for the visit of Manchester United – and he certainly took his chance.

Four minutes into the second half, Sarr was on hand to fire Spurs into the lead with a half-volley into the roof of the net.

It was his first goal for the club since his arrival two years ago, and it seems as though he copied Rashford’s signature celebration after.

Fans online were loving it, with one saying: “Sarr did the “Rashford celebration” this season before Rashford.”

“Sarr doing this with Rashford on the pitch is incredible,” added another.

A third and certainly delighted fan said with laughing emojis: “Sarr doing the Rashford celebration he’s a little s*** love him so much.”

“Sarr did the Rashford celebration?? That was cold,” added a fourth fan.

A fifth said: “Sarr scores and does the Rashford trademark celebration? The shamelessness is unreal.”

Davies’ goal helped seal the deal for Postecoglou and co.Getty

Spurs’ lead was doubled in the final ten minutes of the match as Ben Davies shot inside the area sneaked past Andre Onana.

The 2-0 win sees them continue their impressive start to life under Postecoglou, with United looking underwhelming yet again.
