Tottenham score the first goal of the season (but it's at the wrong end)
Man United prevailed 1-0 at Old Trafford.

TOTTENHAM HAVE SCORED the first goal of the Premier League season, but unfortunately from their perspective, it’s at the wrong end.

After a sloppy pass from Nabil Bentleab, United broke, and while Walker got to the subsequent cross before Wayne Rooney, the English defender could only divert the ball into his own net.

Tottenham had one excellent chance before then, with Christian Eriksen narrowly missing the target with a lob following Harry Kane’s clever through ball.

However, Walker’s goal proved to be the difference ultimately, as United held on for a win on the opening day.
