Tottenham have claimed a second straight Premier League win at Old Trafford by beating Manchester United 2-1 to drop the champions further out of title contention.

Emmanuel Adebayor put Spurs ahead with a header in the 34th minute before Christian Eriksen turned from supplier to scorer to leave United 2-0 down in the 66th.

Danny Welbeck responded a minute later with his fifth goal in his last five league matches, but United slipped to a fourth home defeat of the campaign and is now 11 points behind Arsenal.

Spurs, who had gone 23 years without a league win at Old Trafford until a 3-2 victory last season, is unbeaten in four matches under new manager Tim Sherwood. They climb to sixth, two points behind fourth-place Liverpool.
