Gareth Southgate shortlisted as candidate for Manchester United managerial job

Solskjaer has won each of his first five games in chargeMore

Alexis Sanchez is out after suffering yet another injury during the side's 2-0 win over Reading in the FA Cup this past weekend. And they were all in the second half to thwart a Tottenham comeback.

Yet, let's imagine for a minute that Pochettino hadn't come out and said that. Meanwhile, Solskjaer has been praised for becoming the first manager to guide the team to five out of five wins across all competitions before their trip to Wembley where they play Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League. 'We created more than enough chances to win the game.

"Second half, we made hard work of it".

Lucas Moura, Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli can play as attacking figures, but Kane's potential absence would leave a monstrous hole in the Spurs attack, and Pochettino must venture into the transfer market, if Kane is injured.

Young will deputise at right-back, with Luke Shaw on the left. "We weren't clinical. And sometimes with less opportunities you score, but there's no complaints". "He's giving me the freedom of going forward, to shoot and to be forward with the three forwards". Indeed, for all of David De Gea's 11 saves, Pogba's influence at the other end earned United victory, and he was only denied two goals by saves from his France teammate Lloris.

Talk over De Gea's United future is sure to intensify in the coming days after Sunday's heroics, with his deal is due to expire next summer - after the activation of a one-year extension clause.

The 48-year-old's only previous managerial experience at club level came with Middlesbrough from 2006 to 2009.




For Sunday's visit of United, Tottenham are expected to be without Eric Dier as he continues to recover from appendix surgery, according to BBC Sport.

The Chilean was not part of the group that travelled to London on Saturday and was not in the 18-man squad named by caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Wembley. The most by any goalkeeper in a Premier League match this season.

"It's a pleasure to see him again", said Pogba.

Interim United boss Solskjaer said of the youngster's ability to be a leading man: "He's got frightening pace, he's now become stronger, he can hold the ball up for us and he's a great link player".

"He's got good players, it's the same with me". The best 45 minutes. "Of course, it's going to be a tough game for both sides".

"But I think overall the performance was fantastic".
