Manchester United's run under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues.

The Red Devils pulled off their biggest win of the season by beating Tottenham 1-0 at Wembley today.

Marcus Rashford scored the only goal of the game late in the first-half after a ridiculous through ball from Paul Pogba.

Spurs rallied after the break and will feel they should of at least got a point from the game, with Harry Kane and Dele Alli missing a plethora of chances.

The two Englishman were thwarted by David de Gea, who enjoyed arguably his finest game in a United shirt - and that really is saying something.

He was simply a colossus between the sticks, showcasing his ridiculous ability of saving the ball with his feet.

De Gea notched 11 saves against Spurs, his highest tally of the season - his record stands at 14 away at Arsenal last season.

The Spaniard was heavily praised on social media, but there was a lingering school of thought that a lot of the shots were straight at him.

However, fellow Premier League goalkeeper Ben Foster has decided to react to that analogy and he really has set the record straight.


Foster wrote: "I see a lot of people saying all De Gea saves were straight at him, please factor in that the guy has some mad sense to know where to be at just the right time, you can’t teach that. Proper goally 👏."

Fair play, Ben.

De Gea's positional sense throughout the game was exceptional and it felt as if Spurs were simply never going to beat him regardless of how many chances they created.

The three points earned in the capital have now moved United level on points with Arsenal, with just six separating the Red Devils and Chelsea in fourth.
