​Fred reveals how Man Utd half-time talk sparked comeback against Tottenham

Manchester United midfielder Fred admits a half-time team talk propelled them to a come from behind win against Tottenham in the Premier League on Sunday.

The Red Devils went behind in the game in London, thanks to an excellent finish from Heung-Min Son.

Spurs could not hold onto the lead, which has been a problem for them all season, and United went on to win 3-1.

Fred got the equaliser for United, with Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood goals sealing the win.

Asked about the game, Fred told the club's website: "First-half we did not play well but in half-time we talk a lot in the dressing room.

"In the second-half we started playing well, playing more of the ball, played side-to-side and we had the space in the game.

"It was good. We scored the first goal, Edi opened the space for me."
