Nani played the whistle, Gomes did not, United 2-0

Manchester United moved level on points with Arsenal after a 2-0 victory against Tottenham at Old Trafford. Nemanja Vidic nodded United ahead with his second of the season before Nani put United 2-0 up with a controversial goal that left Spurs fuming. Referee Mark Clattenburg looked to have given a free kick against the winger after he handled the ball when he went down in the box. The ball ran on to Heurelho Gomes who placed the ball down for what he thought was a free kick but Clattenburg had not blown his whistle which allowed the Portuguese to tap home unchallenged.
