Manchester United moved level on points with fifth-placed Arsenal thanks to their 1-0 win against Spurs.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer went in to the match looking to maintain his flawless record having won all five of his matches in all competitions since replacing Jose Mourinho as United manager last month.

Speaking to Sky Sports after his man of the match performance at Wembley, De Gea was keen to highlight the team's overall display. I don't even remember some of the saves so I can't pick a best. They may still be six points behind Chelsea, who beat Newcastle United 2-1 yesterday, but United have closed the gap to Spurs to seven points and it has forced the bookmakers to slash United's odds for a top-four finish.

Mourinho routinely dropped Pogba and criticised his performances, while he also went as far as saying the Frenchman would not captain the team again while he was manager after wearing the armband earlier in the season. We know how to keep the ball, make some chances.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba felt Jose Mourinho's system and tactics made it "really difficult" for him to flourish before the Portuguese's sacking.

Pochettino's side fell behind to Marcus Rashford's victor at the end of the first half, but put in an exceptional second half attempt only to be thwarted by a string of even better David de Gea stops.

The Spain global made 11 saves, including several to keep Kane out, as Spurs were frustrated. Solskjaer has used Pogba in a more attacking role, giving him greater freedom to express himself, and has been rewarded with a series of match-winning performances.

Asked if he's been given more freedom under Solskjaer, Pogba replied: "Yeah, that's what the manager has told me: "get in the box, get goals - you will score goals if you're in the box". "It was really hard playing in the system we used to play".

United fans will now be hoping De Gea's long-term future can be resolved so that they can rest assured their best player won't be leaving any time soon.

"When I had to defend, it is not my best attribute".

"I am enjoying playing my football now,"...

- Manchester United have kept back-to-back clean sheets in the Premier League - they'd only kept two in their first 20 league matches this season.
