Mourinho’s re-appearance, a year to the month he was dismissed by Manchester United, ended in defeat as Tottenham Hotspur lost for the first time since he was appointed.

There would be no knee slide, no fist pump, no tapping of his chest for Mourinho as he watched Marcus Rashford inspire United to victory and in doing so went a long way towards relieving the mounting pressure on Solskjaer in what feels like a defining week for him ahead of Saturday’s Manchester derby.

This was a return to the Theatre of Dreams that Jose Mourinho will not have wanted to imagine but one that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have fantasised about.

Harry Kane curled one over for Spurs; Rashford went closer for United and the Stretford End was buoyed with a song for Solskjaer.

The Humble One did not expect to be humbled and although he remained restrained throughout how he will have dreamt of getting one over the club that felt he was not that special any more.

Little over six minutes had elapsed when Jesse Lingard ran down a pass forward from Fred, was challenged by Davinson Sanchez with the ball breaking to Marcus Rashford who struck a powerful, instinctive right-foot shot that caught out Paulo Gazzaniga with the goalkeeper palming it in off his near post.

Soon there was injury added to that early insult for Mourinho with Harry Winks diving in to bring down Daniel James by the touchline and the United winger whacking his head on the shin of the Spurs head coach.
