Manchester United’s impressive winning run under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continued on Sunday evening with a 1-0 victory over Tottenham at Wembley.

Marcus Rashford scored the only goal of the match at the end of the first half, finding the bottom corner of the net with an unerring finish following a wonderful pass from Paul Pogba.

However, the undisputed Man of the Match was United’s world-class goalkeeper David de Gea, who pulled off 11 saves against the north London outfit, somehow keeping his side’s clean sheet in tact.

Spurs bombarded the United goal in the second half but couldn’t find a way past the Spanish shot-stopper.

This was one of the finest individual performances of his career - and easily the best goalkeeping display we’ve seen in the Premier League this season.

If you missed the match and haven’t seen De Gea’s saves, then you’re in for a treat.

Here’s his save from a Dele Alli header early in the second half…

This stunning reaction save from Toby Alderweireld was arguably the pick of the bunch…

Another cracking save from Harry Kane…

Alli just couldn’t find a way past…

And neither could Kane…

You can watch all 11 of his saves in one video here...

And here's how he celebrated with the fans after the match...

Great stuff.

Former United captain Gary Neville summed it up perfectly when he said of De Gea on commentary: “He'll have to frame those boots at the end of the game!”

Meanwhile, football fans and journalists alike on Twitter were full of praise for 28-year-old, who is surely the best keeper in the world right now.

Following Sunday’s victory over Spurs, United now find themselves level on points (41) with fifth-placed Arsenal.

A top-four finish suddenly looks a real possibility.
