Here’s how we rated the Blades after goals from Sander Berge, Lys Mousset and Oli McBurnie secured a fabulous victory...

Kane's 'goal' aside, which was later ruled out by VAR, had nothing of note to do. Handling and kicking generally good
Put in a real shift up and down the left wing and dealt well with the lively Son

Helped keep Spurs' talented forward line quiet alongside his fellow centre-halves and got involved offensively, too
The disallowed 'goal', which came under freak circumstances, and his late consolation aside, the Irishman kept Harry Kane largely quiet for the second game this season
Another solid display from the former Forest man, who also pinged the ball cross-field nicely on occasions
His best game since the restart. Did the basics defensively and then produced a superb cross to punch a hole in Spurs' defence for Mousset's goal
Impressed on his full Premier League debut. Terrier-like in midfield, launching himself into challenges and also showed his quality on the ball in build up to Mousset's goal
Stuck his foot in when needed, even if he was perhaps fortunate not to receive a second booking when he caught Son with his arm as they contested a high ball
Another impressive display from the Norwegian, capped by his first goal in United colours - a calm and composed finish into the far corner. Then great feet for McBurnie's goal but switched off for Spurs' consolation
Will perhaps be disappointed not to have scored *another* goal against Spurs this season, after hitting the side-netting when well placed in the second half
Ran his blood to water for the cause once again and also played his part in Mousset's second goal, by dropping deep and spreading the play. Got the goal he deserved late on
Looked hungry when he came on and was the only player who looked as if he could match Sissoko for strength. Got a deserved goal
