But this wasn’t really luck.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s limber-looking Manchester United did have their share of fortune too, in the course of a game that saw United attack with elan for an hour, and collapse into a state of dogged near-exhaustion by the end.



It is a gamble to press so hard early on, like a boxer putting in big early rounds in the hope of landing a decisive blow.



Manchester United’s win over Spurs gave us a glimpse of that babyfaced tactical brain and a demonstration of the gifts of his genius-level lime green octopus of a goalkeeper No doubt someone somewhere will bring up Napoleon’s line about a good general being a lucky one, in the wake of this fun, helter-skelter, ultimately rather frantic 1-0 defeat of Tottenham.

And so here we had it: pure, uncut Ole-ball, with an attack based around speed and mobility, and with a cute tactical jink at its heart.

The plan worked for about an hour.

Or at least not entirely.
