          A late penalty from Bruno Fernandes earned a point for Manchester United in a 1-1 draw at Tottenham on Friday night.

          Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer only made two changes from the side that beat Manchester City last time out back in March, but after a bright start from the visitors Tottenham took the lead in the 27th minute through Steven Bergwijn who left Harry Maguire for dead and fired past David De Gea.

          After the goal, Tottenham were very organised defensively, José Mourinho intent on doing a number on his former employers.

          It wasn't until Paul Pogba's introduction in the second-half that United showed creativity in and around Tottenham's box, and it was the Frenchman who helped his side level the contest, his quick feet drawing Eric Dier into a mis-timed tackle in the area. From the penalty spot, Fernandes made no mistake with less than 10 minutes to play

          In the wake of this result, the fight for European spots is still very tight: Spurs eighth in the table, four points behind fifth-placed United.

          Southampton travelled to Carrow Road and eased past their hosts with a 3-0 win on their Premier League return.

          The Saints' three goals were scored in the second -half, the first from top scorer Danny Ings right after half-time. Just five minutes later, Stuart Armstrong doubled Southampton's lead, leaving Norwich with an uphill battle and in the 79th minute, Nathan Redmond notched against his old club to complete their misery.

          Southampton are now 13th, 10 points clear of the relegation zone. Norwich, meanwhile, are struggling at the bottom of the table, six points shy of safety with eight games to play.
