Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made the best start of any Manchester United manager after winning his first six games in charge following Manchester United’s 1-0 win at Tottenham on Sunday.
Marcus Rashford scored the only goal of the game after Paul Pogba picked him up perfectly with a beautiful pass.
Manchester United also had to thank goalkeeper David De Gea for the victory after the goalkeeper made 11 saves in the second half as Tottenham chased the game and pushed Manchester United back.
That is the most saves De Gea has made in a Premier League game without conceding.
It was also the first away league win for Manchester United against Tottenham since 2012.
Despite the win over Tottenham, Manchester United remain in sixth place but are now level on 41 points with fifth-placed Arsenal. United were eight points behind Arsenal when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed as caretaker manager on December 19th.
Following Solskjaer’s win over Tottenham, Paddy Power are now certain the Norwegian would be appointed as permanent Manchester United manager.
A Paddy Power spokesman said: “We’re so confident that Ole’s Gunnar stay, we’ve decided to pay out on him being appointed permanent Manchester United manager.
“He defeated his main competition for the role today, in the form of Mauricio Pochettino, and he’s made the Special One look special once in less than a month.”
