Jose Mourinho stated pre-match that he didn't want his Manchester United side starting off this trip to Wembley 1-0 behind.
When United travelled to face Spurs in the Premier League earlier this year, Christian Eriksen gave the hosts the lead after a matter of seconds.
Although it wasn't quite the same speed today, the Dane turned provider as Dele Alli gave Mauricio Pochettino's side the lead within 10 minutes.
Looking disheveled and disorganised, United needed a response - quickly. Slipping into his more regular rhythm, Paul Pogba would duly deliver.
Having suffered the ignominy of being nutmegged by Kieran Trippier a few moments before, Pogba effortlessly shouldered Spurs' Moussa Dembele off the ball, before delivering a beautifully weighted cross onto the head of Alexis Sanchez.
Somewhat resembling Lionel Messi's headed goal against United in the 2009 Champions League final, Sanchez will just be happy to have that goal under his belt.
