Seconds later, Mike Dean's final whistle ensured that Solskjaer passed his first big test as United caretaker manager in emphatic fashion, with that small instruction serving as a microcosm of his day.

"There is a swagger, an arrogance about the way Rashford leads the line".

Pogba's ball encapsulated the change in mood and performance at United since Solskjaer replaced the sacked Mourinho last month.

Yes, the very man who brought so much happiness to his country in the summer after he transformed the nation's relationship with The Three Lions football team, bringing buckets of pride and joy to this small island once again. "I like to be more attacking, I had to defend too much before, and that is not my best attribute". This is my position.

Pogba went on to say that the way Solskjaer is utilising Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic is helping to give him more "security" behind him and more "freedom" to go forward. "Now I'm taking pleasure again, I play again, I'm doing what I love, so it's normal. Hopefully we can see the best of him because he's a top, top player".

After the match, Rashford hailed Solskjaer for the tactical plan created to hurt Spurs.

Tottenham had had earlier warnings of United's deadly counter-attacks but failed to react effectively and just when it seemed as though the half would end at 0-0, the academy player slotted home.

That is the view of former Spurs midfielder Jamie Redknapp.

But, Southgate could now have his head turned by the prospect of managing one of the biggest club teams on the planet, in a shock switch that would deflate a nation, given the vast impact he's had at the helm of England.

"Of course, he's got high standards himself that you demand from yourself", Solskjaer said, as reported on the club's official website. If this continues, he is going to become a serious contender for the top job on a permanent basis.
