Tottenham 0-0 Man United – Premier League LIVE: Antony has a chance to open the scoring but blazes well over the bar as Bruno Fernandes gets a nasty knock on the shin from Pedro Porro

Follow Mail Sport’s live blog as  Tottenham host Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in Ange Postecoglou’s first home match without Harry Kane.

Host commentator

13: A Fernandes worldie of a pass sets Rashford free down the Spurs left. He feeds Wan-Bissaka, whose cross is well directed, but Garnacho’s first touch is OK rather than excellent and Spurs can recover to clear.

At the other end, Sarr balloons a header from a corner wide. But Kulusevski gets behind Shaw again and there’s another corner…

10: After Tottenham’s bright start, they’ve taken their foot off the pedal a little. United seem livelier, have a bit more tempo to their play, and are dominating possession.

Van de Ven can’t field a Romero pass and it goes straight out of play. Shaky…

OH, it’s the first real save of the day! Rashford RACES onto a through ball with searing pace and tries to poke it in from a tight angle – but Vicario gets a strong hand to it.

7: Van de Ven loses the ball trying a crazy dribble on the left hand side, Antony works it out to the left and Porro blocks the overlapping Shaw’s cross. 

Two corners in a row – but they come to nothing.

Bruno Fernandes is back on, by the way, after a 30-second delay.

5: Bruno Fernandes is down on the turf, writhing around in agony. Not for the first time. But this time he looks to be in genuine pain after a firm but fair 50-50 tackle with Pedro Porro.

He wasn’t fully committed to it, whereas Porro was, and those are the challenges when you get injured.

2: Careful there! Pedro Porro – playing in that inverted full-back role that seems to be very much in vogue at the moment – loses the ball and Antony has a chance to shoot… but blazes over from the edge of the box.

Gary Neville says: if full-backs could receive the ball on the half-turn like that, they’d be central midfielders.

A close shave!

1: A good start for Spurs!

They are pressed high and hard by United but play their way out of trouble neatly and three quick passes sees them go 80 yards up the pitch in double-quick time.

It’s crossed to Son at the back post, but he scuffs his attempted volley.

A huge roar for Ange Postecoglou as he walks out in North London for the first time!

50 Premier League appearances for Dejan Kulusevski, plus four home debuts for the hosts – Vicario, Van de Ven, Udogie and of course James Maddison.

Erik names an unchanged starting XI for our first away day of the season! 🔴#MUFC || #TOTMUN


Your confirmed starting XI for #TOTMUN 👊

That despite having two goalies among the subs! 

Maybe leaving him out amid speculation over his future? His move to West Ham reportedly fell through this week…

While Erik ten Hag’s side are unchanged.

Two goalkeepers on the bench probably suggests the Dutchman will want an addition or two to his squad before the summer transfer window closes.

Half an hour until kick-off…

Two changes for Spurs today.

Perhaps surprisingly, the more defensive-minded Emerson Royal drops out for the attacking right back Pedro Porro despite his goal against Brentford last week, while talented youngster Pape Sarr, 20, replaces Oliver Skipp in midfield.

Royal and Skipp are on the bench alongside Fraser Forster, who returns from injury to act as goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario’s deputy.

It’s Tottenham’s first home game without this man. How will they cope without him? Can they? 

This is the first big test of Ange Postecoglou’s tenure.

Lots of anti-ENIC feeling outside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this afternoon.

One flag plays on the club motto of ‘To Dare Is To Do’, instead reading: ‘To Dare Is Too Dear. ENIC out.’

Others protest against ticket price rises.
