Man Of The Match : David de Gea
- Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has equalled Matt Busby’s all-time record of winning his first five league games in charge of Manchester United.
- Tottenham have lost consecutive home Premier League games for the first time since May 2015.
- Tottenham have lost four home league games this season – double the amount they’d lost at home in their previous two Premier League campaigns combined (2).
- 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.
- Man Utd’s Marcus Rashford has scored in three consecutive Premier League games for the first time in his career.
- Paul Pogba has been directly involved in 53% of Man Utd’s 15 Premier League goals since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge (4 goals, 4 assists).
- David de Gea made 11 saves in this match for Man Utd – only against Arsenal in December 2017 has he ever made more in a Premier League match (14). This was the most saves he’s made in a top five European league game while also keeping a clean sheet.
- 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).

: “The motivation is already going to be there. When you are a manager or a coach, you cannot be focused on all the rumours. The most important thing is to have motivation to do our jobs in the best way,” Pochettino said.
“Of course United will come to win and for him there is massive motivation or challenge to manage Manchester United. For me it’s a massive challenge to be at Tottenham.
“We are so competitive, we are people that love to win and hate to lose. It’s always about wanting to win. The motivation in the Premier League is already there.”
