Six games on and the baby face assassin does it again and this time against a side he scored 7 times against during his playing days Tottenham Hotspur. In a match that many said would be his testing ground as he had previously played against lesser sides that were not up to the level of Manchester United.
Having begun with almost the same squad that he used during the first game against Cardiff, Ole Gunnar Solskjær decided to press Spurs up the field and the gamble paid off as Rashford delivered what would be the only goal for united in a 4-2-3-1 formation which saw Jessie Lingard play as a centre forward. This somewhat caught Spurs off as they did not know how to cope with the pace and trickery of the three players. Any one knows that a high temple game lasts only so much and after a while you need to slow down.
The second half Mauricio Pochettino responded with a more aggressive approach that saw Manchester United pinned in their half. With the lack of a strong back four Manchester United packed the bus and managed to with stand the pressure of Spurs that saw De Gea produce top draw saves and maintain the status as the best goal keeper in the world.
If any thing is to be learnt from the game against Spurs is that Manchester United, attacking wise can take on any team but defensively they need to bring in a more experienced defender that will command the defense and help Linderlof become the defender that we know he is and also help unleash the beast in Baily.
All in all well done to Ole Gunnar Solskjær and writing his name next to the greats.
