Man Utd legend Neville: Solskjaer out-thought Tottenham boss Pochettino

"I thought he was going to go near post, but it was a well-struck finish".

Marcus Rashford's first half goal was enough to see Solskjaer collect his sixth straight win since taking over from Jose Mourinho at United. Everything comes when you are more free, have the trust of the manager and the players, it makes it easy for me.

Mauricio Pochettino remains the favourite to be the successor to the dismissed José Mourinho and the dynamic way that his Tottenham Hotspur team... Last season, when Manchester United finished second and got to an FA Cup final, Mourinho lost three games to promoted teams. "Let's be honest, it couldn't get any worse at Manchester United before Jose Mourinho left", he told Paddy Power News. He has emphasized on playing attacking football which is the identity of United. I think, in the plan you have to play, it's not ethical to talk about how he is doing or I am doing.

"The manager brought some happiness", De Gea said.


Asked if this was the best he had seen from De Gea, Solskjaer said: "Well, he had one against Arsenal a couple of years ago - but he should have held a few of them!"

"Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is picking the profile of player Manchester United need and that's players who have the energy to get from box to box quickly and counter-attack with quality", the Sky Sports pundit said on his podcast. Tottenham had a couple of chances as well but Manchester United looked really threatening in the channels.

Indeed, for all of David De Gea's 11 saves, Pogba's influence at the other end earned United victory, and he was only denied two goals by saves from his France teammate Lloris.

That is the simple side of the game - making players feel happy and full of belief - but by beating Spurs, Solskjaer showed he can also do the hard part of delivering tactically.
