Manchester United took Tottenham Hotspur down with a 1-0, scored by Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Meanwhile, Chelsea have taken West Bromwich Albion down with another 1-0, in the Premier League.

Chelsea moved back to the top of the Premier League and made it nine successive league wins as Diego Costa scored the winner against a stubborn West Brom at Stamford Bridge.

Manchester United have only lost three times in the Premier League this season but the 'wins' tally before facing Spurs stood at just five - as many as Bournemouth and Burnley and one fewer than Watford.

United have recorded six draws and should have won probably five of them. The stalemate at Liverpool was hard-fought but United dominated Stoke, Burnley, Arsenal and West Ham, while their pragmatism was their undoing at an underwhelming Everton.

Draws have been an issue for Tottenham, too. They have also chalked up six of them but Mauricio Pochettino's side had lost only once in the league - at Chelsea - until they faced the Reds.

Mkhitaryan's first Premier League goal gave Manchester United victory over top-four rivals Tottenham.

United, still six points behind fourth-placed Manchester City, led when Mkhitaryan raced on to Ander Herrera's through ball and hammered into the roof of the net.
