Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani and Marcus Rashford all found the back of the net as Manchester United sealed an easy win over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

LONDON – Manchester United thrashed Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 with goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani and Marcus Rashford in the Premier League on Saturday to ease the pressure on under-fire manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Ronaldo struck in the 39th minute with a perfect right-foot volley into the far corner of Hugo Lloris’s net from a glorious pass by Portuguese compatriot Bruno Fernandes.

Cavani added the second in the 64th and substitute Rashford wrapped up a comfortable win four minutes from time as United put last weekend’s 5-0 home drubbing by Liverpool behind them.

United climbed to fifth on 17 points from 10 games, while Nuno Espirito Santo’s shot-shy Spurs side, who failed to trouble United goalkeeper David De Gea, are eighth on 15.
