The clash, which saw Solskjaer come up against the favourite to replace him at Old Trafford this summer in Mauricio Pochettino, offered the Norwegian vindication that his more free-flowing approach can work against the big sides, though he had a lot to thank David de Gea for at Wembley as United climbed level on points with Arsenal.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer passed the biggest test of his short Manchester United career as Marcus Rashford’s goal was enough to consign Tottenham to consecutive home defeats in the lead.

Solskajer has taken the handbrake off at Manchester United since replacing Jose Mourinho, and his front three continued that trend at Wembley.

As Spurs rallied United dropped off, De Gea called on again and again to stop Kane and substitute Llorente as Trippier continued to get in behind Luke Shaw and pepper the box with crosses.

United’s chances did not slow Spurs as once again they broke and should have been level, Kane brilliantly playing in Alli who ran at goal but could not beat De Gea at his near post, each of the near 80,000 Tottenham fans at Wembley wishing that exchange had been the other way around.

With Rashford and Anthony Martial playing just ahead of Jesse Lingard, the visitors looked to pounce on anything offered up by the Spurs back four, with Ben Davies and Kieran Trippier enduring rather slow seasons and Jan Vertonghen back in for his first start in a month.

Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko continued their pairing in Pochettino’s midfield but after a demanding run over the festive period the pair looked weary.
