Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United - Premier League
Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United - Premier League

Manchester United increased their winning run to six games under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. United's fortunes have completely changed since the appointment of Solskjaer.

The clash against Tottenham was Solskjaer's first stern test since taking charge of the club. With this win, United are level on points with Arsenal on 5th position in the League. Solskjaer's appointment has increased the confidence of the players and they are playing fearlessly.

Tottenham, on the other hand, squandered their chances of winning the league after the defeat at Wembley. Tottenham are two points behind City in the third position

United are playing the attacking brand of football under the new manager. United have scored staggering 17 goals and conceded only three in six games which clearly shows the effect Solskjaer has on his team.

Tottenham dominated United in the first half having more possession and shots but failed to put the ball at the back of the net. Tottenham should have taken the lead when Harry Winks hit the shot wide with less than 15 minutes on the clock. It seemed as if Tottenham took the lead in the 31st minute through Harry Kane but the goal was disallowed for offside.

Moussa Sissoko was substituted by Erik Lamela due to injury during the final minutes of the first half. United took the lead through Marcus Rashford in the 44th minute.

Tottenham tried their very best to score the equalizer in the second half with their attacking football but failed to do so. Pochettino's men were denied 11 times by Spanish shot-stopper David De Gea who was probably the best player on the pitch from both the clubs.

Solskjaer and his men will continue to maintain their winning run when they face Brighton next week at Old Trafford. Tottenham will face Fulham next week.

Twitter reacted to the United's win over Tottenham and here are some of the best tweets:
