FA confident Gareth Southgate won't become manager of Manchester Utd

Adjust Comment Print

The win means that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has become the first Manchester United manager to win his first six matches in charge and the manager has the Spanish stopper to thank.

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

Around 7/2 shots at the start of the day, United are as short as 2/1 with some bookmakers to secure a Champions League spot by the end of the season, while Spurs were 1/10 to bag a top-four spot before a ball was kicked today, but are now 1/4 chances.

The FA are confident Gareth Southgate will not break his contract if he is offered the opportunity to take charge at Manchester United.

The Spain global made 11 saves, including several to keep Kane out, as Spurs were frustrated.

Paul Pogba lauded the more attacking brand of football Solskjaer has brought to the club, saying that he feels the current philosophy is allowing him to thrive.

"He is the best goalkeeper in the world, I have said it many times". "It was really hard playing in the system we used to play".

Up against Mauricio Pochettino, the favourite to replace Jose Mourinho on a full-time basis at Old Trafford, Solskjaer's team played vibrant football and just about did enough in a match of many chances, with De Gea's display just as important as Marcus Rashford's third goal in as many games. I think, in the plan you have to play, it's not ethical to talk about how he is doing or I am doing. Defending is not my best attribute. "We hope it's not a big issue, but if it is, it is a big problem for us". We needed to attack on the opposite side, that's what we did and we scored a goal.

- 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.

"He makes a great run, he helped me for the pass, I tried to give him the flawless pass".
