Just when you thought the opening half of Manchester United‘s Premier League clash with Tottenham couldn’t get any crazier, Anthony Martial decided to give Erik Lamela a little slap.

As Jose Mourinho returned to his old stomping ground with both sides having made a slow start to the season, pundits were predicting a cagey affair at Old Trafford.

But such predictions were blown out of the water after just 30 seconds, when Tottenham conceded a penalty and Bruno Fernandes gave the hosts the lead.

Spurs bounced back almost immediately, equalising through Tanguy Ndombele before Son Heung-min put them ahead.

The north Londoners squandered chances to increase their lead, but United continued to self-destruct when Martial was sent off for a slap on Lamela, who himself appeared to nudge the France international with his elbow but escaped punishment.

Watch the incident here.
