SHANGHAI – Manchester United's Angel Gomes grabbed an 81st-minute winner to secure a 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the International Champions Cup as they ended their pre-season tour of Asia and Australia with a fourth win in four games on Thursday.
United youth product Gomes, 18, struck after Spurs' Lucas Moura cancelled out Anthony Martial's first-half opener and gave the 20-time Premier League champions another victory after they beat Perth Glory, Leeds United and Inter Milan.
However, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's joy was tempered by a knee injury to central defender Eric Bailly, who was carried off 10 minutes after his halftime introduction.
United had the better of the opening exchanges against last season's Champions League runners-up, with Martial hitting the post after four minutes, although Spurs midfielder Dele Alli then forced David De Gea to turn a low shot around the post.
United kept Tottenham's defence under pressure, however, and Brazilian Andreas Pereira slid the ball to Martial who took advantage of goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga's poor positioning to slip the ball home at the near post after 21 minutes.
