“Same coach, different players,” was Jose Mourinho’s explanation when quizzed last weekend why his side perpetually blow leads compared to the ruthless teams he has managed in the past.
Tottenham have now lost 18 points from winning positions in the Premier League this season.
The last time they came from behind to win in the league was when they thrashed United 6-1 at Old Trafford in October.
By contrast, United have picked up 28 points after falling behind, although they only did so this time after controversially having a goal ruled out.
Paul Pogba and Cavani combined brilliantly for the Uruguayan to drill the ball low between the legs of Hugo Lloris.
However, the goal was ruled out after a VAR review by referee Chris Kavanagh for a foul by Scott McTominay on Son in the build-up.
