The half appeared to be drifting towards a sedate close when the Belgian stooped to meet Mkhitaryan's cross and head it home via a deflection to give United the lead.

With Tottenham refusing to negotiate over Dier, United are hoping to tie up a deal for Chelsea's Matic before the Super Cup match against Real Madrid on August 8.
