Tottenham tied the game twice after falling behind to the home team. Rasmus Hojlund and Marcus Rashford scored for Manchester United, and Richarlison and Rodrigo Bentancur scored for the tourists.
Bentancur scored with an assist from Werner. Spurs could have won the game, but Werner was happy with his first game since coming on loan from RB Leipzig.
The German player wasn’t very good at Chelsea before going back to Leipzig, but he loves being back in England with another London team.
“First, I’m glad to be back.” Werner told Sky Sports, “It’s a lot of fun to play here.”
This is the best league right now, with the best pace and best play. I had a great time being outside with those guys. At least one point: things might go better in a few days when I can train with the guys more.
Worner did have chances, but he missed them. He also said he was nervous before his start, especially at such a famous place.
“Yes, it’s always a little nerve-wracking to play for a new team here against United,” he said. “I tried to enjoy football in the end, and that’s what I did.”
“I’m thrilled.” That’s what I saw with the teachers and all the players in the last few days. The team is great, and they included me right away in everything. I’m glad. The other big thing I want is to play in our field.
“As a forward, you always want to score, but if I can add an assist, that’s great too.”
Werner was put right into the starting lineup, even though he hadn’t had much time to train with his new team because Heung-min Son is with South Korea in the Asian Cup, Dejan Kulusevski was sick, and James Maddison is still hurt.
