Kane scare for Spurs after injury in Man United defeat

De Gea's saves were instrumental in keeping a rampant second half Tottenham side at bay as United had their backs against the wall at times.

Pochettino's men would go on to batter Manchester United after the break, only to be denied by a combination of poor finishing and excellent goalkeeping, with David de Gea making 11 saves in the second half alone.

Defeat left Spurs nine points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool and they will be five behind Manchester City if the champions win against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday.

"Today, to talk about the game, of course we were better". For Spurs, however, it was another blow to their title hopes.

While England star Kane was hardly awful, in a game of this magnitude Spurs and Pochettino would have expected him to be reliable in front of goal, yet De Gea came out on top in their duel.

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. We dominated the game and we created more chances than them. Maybe one or two of them were uncatchable, but the saves he makes are because he is so in tune with the game.

United have won five games from five in the Premier League since Solskjaer took over from Jose Mourinho, yet Pochettino would also not be drawn on improvement in the Red Devils ranks, despite recording a 3-0 win in the reverse fixture earlier this season.

United's victory means that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer notched up a personal record of winning his first six matches in charge at Old Trafford, but today's victory for his side has had huge ramifications at the top of the table. The 25-year-old has contributed four goals and four assists, an involvement in 53 per cent of United's goals since Solskjaer took charge.

- Tottenham's Harry Kane had seven shots in this match - he last had more without finding the net in a Premier League game in January 2018 (8 vs Man Utd).
