It did feel like this 2-1 win ultimately came down to United’s superior central set-up as much as the resurgent Marcus Rashford’s brilliant form, as Solskjaer’s side just repeatedly surged through a flat and stale Tottenham Hotspur.

So, was this defiant victory a sign that the Manchester United players still love Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, still have it in for Jose Mourinho – or somewhere in between?

Specifically and literally, in midfield.

In that, it was a reprieve for their manager, and just a fifth win of the season to go with Mourinho’s first defeat as Tottenham Hotspur.

United didn’t show too much of that themselves, but didn’t need to in this specific game with Rashford on such form and the team showing such fire.

And he’s enjoying precisely the kind of confidence that ensures there’s no chance of him missing one of those penalties any more.

It was, appropriately enough, a reminder of so many of the Portuguese’s United teams: an outdated and ill-fitting formation that was far too reliant on individual flashes, and far too short on constructive co-ordinated modern attacking play.
