Mourinho had wanted to mark his return to Manchester United with a fourth win on the spin with Tottenham; to make his biggest statement yet with his new club.

Instead, Rashford comprehensively upstaged him, scoring both of the goals in a United victory that ought to have been more emphatic, such was their first-half domination, to provide his current manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjær, with a sorely needed tonic.

The sight of Marcus Rashford in smooth and pacy flow – the components of his thrilling technique in sync from first to last – would once have delighted José Mourinho.

Rashford scored early on and the winner, after Dele Alli’s moment of sorcery had temporarily hauled Spurs level, came from a penalty that he had won himself.

How were United only level at the start of the second half?

Mourinho’s starting XI had revealed an attacking intention – a recognition, perhaps, that he felt United might be vulnerable – with Lucas Moura restored to the front four and Moussa Sissoko preferred to Eric Dier in midfield.

Rashford extended Gazzaniga with a curler, Lingard was wide with a similar shot and the thought occurred that United could live to regret their inability to kill Spurs off.
