|David De Gea made 11 saves to deny Tottenham|
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made it six wins in six games as Manchester United defeated Tottenham away from home by 1-0 win.
Marcus Rashford scored the lone goal following a Paul Pogba’s pinpoint pass just at the end of the first half. Manchester United however had David De Gea to thank for the win as the Spaniard made as many as 11 saves on the night, denying Tottenham from finding the back of the net for most of the second half. Wonderful team spirit display from United players out there and they are still sixth but are now level on 41 points with Arsenal who are fifth with just two goals difference. Tottenham are however standing third with 48 points.
