Attacking stat shows how much Solskjaer has transformed Man United

Manchester United Confirmed lineup vs Tottenham: Young, Lingard start Pochettino admits he is worried about 'massive' Harry Kane injury

A fluid, fast, direct front three of Marcus Rashford flanked by Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard has been a joy to watch.

The youngster has started in the No.9 role for five of the six games under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, claiming four goals and one assist in the process.

Mourinho lost support of practically all of the squad by the time of his sacking in December and his side's negative style of play was summed up in his final game in charge in a 3-1 defeat against Liverpool.

After talk in the build-up to the game that the match was an opportunity for Pochettino - linked to the United job - to take on interim Old Trafford boss Solskjaer, the Tottenham manager was asked how he felt he fared.

'It's about attacking, about pace, about power.

"It's a great ball but we have been training on this we knew that was the weakness of Spurs, they got high and we need to attack in the opposite side and that's what we tried in training", Pogba told Sky Sports.

"I play a bit further forward and I've got the security behind me", Pogba told reporters at Wembley after helping United to a 1-0 win over Tottenham on Sunday. "Not stupid square and back passes".

Solskjaer has not revived Pogba merely with an arm around his shoulder.

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

Attacking midfielder Juan Mata, who didn't play a part during the match, was literally all of us as he walked up to his country man after the game with his hands on his head in disbelief.

The Norwegian has done little wrong since he took over an unhappy club from Mourinho, reinvigorating Pogba and Rashford and tightening a leaky defence - the clean sheet against Spurs was just United's fourth of the Premier League campaign.

"The best way to get the best out of Pogba is to get him into the box".

Many fans and pundits argued that those are the sort of games United should be winning - despite them not doing so under Jose Mourinho. "I know I have security behind me and I have freedom to go, so yes it helps". Other players have rediscovered their form under the new manager, with Matic once again impressing in midfield after enduring a dismal past 12 months and Victor Lindelof a mainstay at centre-half.

Each of his back four was praised, with De Gea described as the "best in the world" and "now challenging Edwin (van der Sar) and Peter (Schmeichel) for the number one spot" in the pantheon of United's greatest goalkeepers.
