Tottenham vs Man United: What has been said?

Speaking after the win over Wolves, United captain Bruno Fernandes said: “It was about adapting on the pitch and understanding what we had to do.

“The manager gave us the options on the way to press. I think on the way to press we did well, we recovered some balls.

“We could have been a little bit more aggressive sometimes and we could have gone into the goal in good situations.

“At the end of the day it is about getting the three points and we did.

“We scored a goal, won the game and that is the most important thing.”
