This is the real Manchester United: De Gea

De Gea's saves were instrumental in keeping a rampant second half Tottenham side at bay as United had their backs against the wall at times.

"It was wonderful and I think De Gea made 11 saves, which is unbelievable".

Kane and Son have scored 22 goals between them this season and, without them, Tottenham look short of goals, especially with Spaniard Fernando Llorente struggling for form.

Since Mourinho's departure, Pogba's form has spectacularly improved, scoring four goals and setting up as many - including the victor in Sunday's win at Tottenham - in five league games under Solskjaer, and the France global puts it down to being given freedom.

What does it mean?

The France midfielder created the only goal of the game for Marcus Rashford with a wonderful pass as Manchester United extended their remarkable run under the Norwegian caretaker manager to six successive victories.

It can be argued that, although he was impressive, none of the saves De Gea had to make on Sunday were particularly hard.

While England star Kane was hardly bad, in a game of this magnitude Spurs and Pochettino would have expected him to be reliable in front of goal, yet De Gea came out on top in their duel.

De Gea has lauded the atmosphere that Solskjaer has brought to United since he replaced Jose Mourinho late past year.

"I love playing big matches and against the best players".

Mauricio Pochettino's side have lost two of their last three matches and their quest for the Premier League title maybe over as they drop nine points behind leaders Liverpool, who beat Brighton yesterday.

- Paul Pogba has been directly involved in 53% of Man Utd's 15 Premier League goals since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge (4 goals, 4 assists).

Despite the defeat and frustration around Kane's injury, Pochettino came away from the match impressed with his team, lauding their second-half display as their best 45 minutes since he became coach.
