Mauricio Pochettino salutes Tottenham's 'best performance' in loss to Manchester United

Speaking after the match de Gea told Sky sports: "I was feeling very well with the first two saves". "In those few minutes we didn't organise quickly and in that moment we conceded but overall we dominated the game and we were better", added Mauricio.

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.

However, the revitalised United now find themselves just six points off fourth-placed Chelsea - and level on points with fifth-placed Arsenal - after five league wins in a row.

"It was a game and a battle between Tottenham and Manchester United, because if not, we would need to play him against me, one-versus-one on the pitch".

Marcus Rashford scored the only goal of the game on the stroke of half-time, with David de Gea keeping United's clean sheet intact with one of the best individual performances of his career. "That's where we improve, progress and get more experience". "It was really hard playing in the system we used to play".

Supporters have labelled De Gea as "not human", "incredible" and "amazing" while many described him as the best goalkeeper in the world following his performance against Tottenham today.

Pogba was left on the bench for Mourinho's final three league games in charge before returning to play a central role under Solskjaer. We've chose to pick some out for you today. The French midfielder, who won United's Player of the Month award for December, has looked a completely different player since Solskjaer's arrival. "We hope it's not a big issue, but if it is, it is a big problem for us". We knew that was the weakness of Tottenham.

"That's what the manager [Solskjaer] told me to do; run, get in the box, because you will score goals if you get in the box".

"He makes a great run, he helped me for the pass, I tried to give him the ideal pass".
