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

  • ACTION Harry Kane battles with Paul Pogba for the ball

De Gea was the star, though, producing a string of saves to keep Kane, Alli and Toby Alderweireld at bay and ensuring Solskjaer equalled Matt Busby's record of winning his first five league games in charge of United.

"I am enjoying playing my football now,"...

United now had a lead to protect as Tottenham pushed for an equaliser in the second half and the hosts created a hat-full of chances, however, they failed to get past the in-form De Gea between the United sticks.

Manchester United moved level on points with fifth-placed Arsenal thanks to their 1-0 win against Spurs. "They don't always look fantastic because he is in the right position".

What does it mean?

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

With the in-form South Korean Son Heung-min playing his last match before heading off to the Asia Cup, the last thing Pochettino needed was the sight of Kane hobbling off the pitch after being clattered by United's Phil Jones late on. "I know Matic will be there, we can press high and when we get the ball I'm already there - I can shoot, I can pass, and that's what I've been doing since [Solskjaer] came".

Mauricio Pochettino's side have lost two of their last three matches and their quest for the Premier League title maybe over as they drop nine points behind leaders Liverpool, who beat Brighton yesterday.

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.

Despite the defeat and frustration around Kane's injury, Pochettino came away from the match impressed with his team, lauding their second-half display as their best 45 minutes since he became coach.
