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

Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Fans and pundits have been heaping praise on David De Gea following his world class performance during Manchester United's 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley this evening.

- Manchester United have kept back-to-back clean sheets in the Premier League - they'd only kept two in their first 20 league matches this season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer went in to the match looking to maintain his flawless record having won all five of his matches in all competitions since replacing Jose Mourinho as United manager last month.

"I am so pleased and I'm proud", Pochettino told Sky Sports.

"We won the game against a top team, we controlled the first half".

If it wasn't already abundantly clear, Pogba is far happier playing under Solskjaer than he was Mourinho.

"It wasn't the intention of the United player but it was a bad tackle and now he has bit of a swelling on his ankle and he was limping after the game", he said.

Mauricio Pochettino conceded David de Gea was the difference as Manchester United beat Spurs, despite what he labelled "the best performance" of his tenure.

The Spain global made 11 saves, including several to keep Kane out, as Spurs were frustrated. "And we're winning so indeed we play with a smile always". I like to be more attacking, pressing, playing high - defending is not my best attribute.

"I'm enjoying playing football", he began. Everything comes when you are more free, have the trust of the manager and the players, it makes it easy for me. That's where we improve and progress.

"It was a big one for us". Everyone played well."He said: "It's a great ball, but we've been training on this. He's the one who made those runs and created a lot of chances, he scored a lot of goals".

United were a particular danger on the counter and it was no surprise to see them ultimately go ahead at the end of such of a move, with Rashford finishing after Paul Pogba's excellent pass.
