  • Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

"I am so pleased and I'm proud", Pochettino told Sky Sports.

"He (Ole) brings some happiness, the team are playing well".

Following Spurs' defeat this evening at Wembley, the bookies have eased the north London club from 40/1 to 66/1 for the Premier League title, and it would now appear to be a two-horse race for the title with Liverpool and Manchester City set to battle it out for silverware.

"This is the real Manchester United".

Mauricio Pochettino conceded David de Gea was the difference as Manchester United beat Spurs, despite what he labelled "the best performance" of his tenure. Solskjaer has used Pogba in a more attacking role, giving him greater freedom to express himself, and has been rewarded with a series of match-winning performances. It was really hard with the tactics we used to play.

Asked if he's been given more freedom under Solskjaer, Pogba replied: "Yeah, that's what the manager has told me: "get in the box, get goals - you will score goals if you're in the box".

Open umpire , will not be harmed by the infamous feud that tarnished the NY final, American great Chris Evert said on Wednesday. The legacy of Serena Williams , who next week will compete in her first Grand Slam since her fiery clash with a U.S.

"Kane twisted his ankle and we hope that it is not a big issue".

However senior FA insiders refused to be drawn into any sense of panic on Sunday, and sources close to Southgate, 48, said they could not see him walking out on the national team after reaching last year's World Cup semi-final, and given the prospect of a 2020 European Championship that could see England play most of their games at Wembley. We've made a decision to pick some out for you today.

"When I had to defend, it is not my best attribute".

"We were unlucky, but we need to understand that's football".

United were a particular danger on the counter and it was no surprise to see them ultimately go ahead at the end of such of a move, with Rashford finishing after Paul Pogba's excellent pass. The French midfielder, who won United's Player of the Month award for December, has looked a completely different player since Solskjaer's arrival.

"He makes a great run, he helped me for the pass, I tried to give him the flawless pass".
