Editor's thoughts: So Ole has passed the "acid" test that was Tottenham with flying colours. The previous five wins have been ridiculed because they were against lesser teams and were considered "winnable" regardless. This time round, a combination of tactics by Ole, fantastic finishing by Rashford and world class goalkeeping by De Gea won it for United. The focus was always going to be on the two managers due to the ongoing saga surrounding the next Manchester United manager. This match was being angled as the 'Caretaker' versus the 'Potentially Permanent Manager'. It didn't hurt Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's chances at all with this win and more fans will be getting behind him as the season goes on if this run of good results persists. Currently, it seems that he can do no wrong as United showed that they can take on the big boys and come up with the results. This was by no means an all out attack that neglected defense mind you. Instead, it was a calculated tactical move that made use of our strengths to give United the best possible chance to win. The result? Ole 1 Pochettino 0.
