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. "After four-and-a-half years, the second half was the best performance I have seen Tottenham play". "I know Matic will be there, we can press high and when we get the ball I'm already there - I can shoot, I can pass, and that's what I've been doing since [Solskjaer] came".

"It was Tottenham against Manchester United", he told his post-match news conference. "We hope it's not a big issue, but if it is, it is a big problem for us". We were all determined and wanted to win this game.

Pogba was left on the bench for Mourinho's final three league games in charge before returning to play a central role under Solskjaer. "Today, give the credit to de Gea, we weren't clinical but the team played unbelievable football and we need to be proud about that".

The Norwegian coach set-up his team perfectly in the first half as United frustrated Tottenham for long periods and hit them with the flawless counter-attack to take the lead shortly before the break.

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

"My best example is Frank Lampard". We needed to attack on the opposite side, that's what we did and we scored a goal.

With the hosts piling the pressure on at the end, Kane came off worse in a heavy collision on the edge of the box, leaving him in a heap.

United's victory means that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer notched up a personal record of winning his first six matches in charge at Old Trafford, but today's victory for his side has had huge ramifications at the top of the table.

"It helps me to have Matic [and Herrera] there". "He's giving me the freedom of going forward, to shoot and to be forward with the three forwards".
