English Premier League Report: Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United

English Premier League Report: Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United

Manchester United proved on Sunday that their recovery under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is no flash in the pan, with Marcus Rashford pouncing to seal a 1-0 win in a thrilling contest against Tottenham.

Asked by Sky Sports' Jamie Redknapp what has brought about the upturn in his form, Pogba said that Solskjaer's tactics and style of play are helping him to enjoy his football, in what seemed to be a clear dig at Jose Mourinho's pragmatic style.

If Ed Woodward and the board weren't seriously considering giving United's former striker the job on a permanent basis, they surely are now.

Here are the Manchester United player ratings.

It's been an incredible start to life for Solskjaer and winning here against a manager who many has anointed the chosen one at Old Trafford was a lovely way to state his case for full-time employment.

Solskjaer's arrival has clearly lifted the club and the Red Devils are now level on points with Arsenal who not so long ago were on a 22-game unbeaten streak in all competitions! "After four and a half years, the second half was the best performance I have seen Tottenham play".

But after his United team brushed aside Cardiff, Huddersfield, Bournemouth, Newcastle and Reading, Solskjaer had to make a statement versus a big-six rival, and he did that by outfoxing Pochettino with a plan that set out to deny Spurs time and space to attack through the middle. However, both players already returned to training so their inclusion might be a game-time decision.

Moussa Sissoko pulled up sharply with an apparent hamstring injury and although he returned to the pitch he was unable to continue, being replaced by Erik Lamela.

De Gea made more saves in the second half than any other goalkeeper has managed in an entire match so far this season.

Alli then had another good chance after he was played in but shot straight at De Gea, while Eriksen hit a free kick from the edge of the box wide and Toby Alderweireld forced another superb save at the near post from a corner.

"If Pochettino doesn't go to Manchester United, could he go to Real Madrid?"

Manchester United picked up their fifth Premier League win in a row at the expense of Tottenham Hotspur earlier today and it was a major blow to Spurs' title aspirations.

Until now, momentum and the feel-good factor had propelled United to victories against five teams who, with all due respect, they should expect to beat on every occasion.

"Of course, this Sunday it will be a very nice game to watch".
