Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United: Confirmed starting XI

Man Utd news

I think we created enough chances to score and win the game. United in the first, Spurs in the second.

The decisive moment in the match came shortly before half-time.

Former Everton defender Kevin Kilbane remains unimpressed by Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

Pogba was superb at Wembley.

"I like to be more attacking, pressing and play high rather than defending. The best example is Frank Lampard".

Spurs dedicated Moussa Sissoko to stop him in the first half, and for the most part Sissoko was doing a decent job.

Manchester United are soaring high thanks to a four-game winning streak at the Premier League, but The Red Devils want to extend their good run of fortune.

"I was benched, and a football player on the bench; I'm not sure if he can accept that", Pogba added later. And they were all in the second half to thwart a Tottenham comeback. With Jesse Lingard tiring it was so often the Frenchman, driving through midfield, who was United's reference in attack. The most by any goalkeeper in a Premier League match this season. Proving that he truly is The Man. "It helps me to know Matic will be there and we can press high, that's what I have been doing since the manager came I know I have security there and I have the freedom to go". Of course we are not going to be only focused on Pogba. "This is the real Manchester United". However, David de Gea produced some stunning saves to keep Tottenham at bay.

It's such a simple concept, isn't it?

United, meanwhile, under the charge of caretaker manager Solskjaer, have won five in a row after sacking Jose Mourinho.

Unai Emery says Arsenal can't make permanent signings this month
Asked whether he would consider giving players a break, Emery said: "We are doing that". " I don't know his situation now". He told Arsenal's official website : "I think the most important thing for me is hard work and that day-to-day learning".

"We won the game against a top team".

Pogba played the pass over the Tottenham defence that set Rashford in on goal before the England global finished past Hugo Lloris. The Englishman finished with righteous precision and it was an entire vindication of Solksjaer's approach.

Southgate's current contract with the FA lasts until after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, but the report claims that he could be tempted by the Old Trafford post.

Manchester United are playing at a very high level right now.

The Frenchman is an entirely different player under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and once again he was instrumental against Spurs today.

United are on the search for a successor to interim boss Solksjaer after they sacked José Mourinho in early December.

"He can become a top, top striker", said Solskjaer. Ergo, they should enter this game with their confidence quite high. They have the required talent at their disposal to continue developing and the current squad has gelled together expertly - thanks in large part to Southgate's impressive man management.

Gary Neville was on co-commentary during the game, and said: "De Gea's been inspired".

Real Madrid are still looking for forward, Cristiano Ronaldo's replacement after the 33-year-old left the Santiago Bernebau to join Juventus last year.
