Manchester United have been in scintillating form lately, having won all 5 of their games under Solskjaer.
It would be naïve to think that will change on the back of this result, but if Solskjaer is to have a genuine chance of landing the job for himself, he has to prove himself against the best, so this result placed a very big tick in that box.

"There is a swagger, an arrogance about the way Rashford leads the line".
The trio had threatened before Rashford's 44th-minute goal, which saw the England forward race onto a majestic Paul Pogba pass before firing a clinical strike past Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris into the far corner.

"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's giving me the freedom of going forward, to shoot and to be forward with the three forwards". "Now I'm taking pleasure again, I play again, I'm doing what I love, so it's normal".
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. "Hopefully we can see the best of him because he's a top, top player".
'Results like this against big teams give you confidence'. The 45-year-old was initially brought in to steady the ship after a tumultuous spell under Mourinho and he has been able to get the best out of Pogba having worked with the World Cup victor when he was reserve team coach at Old Trafford between 2008 and 2010.
