With 95 minutes on the clock and Manchester United leading 1-0, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer stood on the edge of his technical area and urged substitute Diogo Dalot to move away from the touchline on the far side to congest space in midfield and restrict Tottenham options through the centre of the pitch.

Pogba's uneasy relationship with Mourinho was a constant talking point during their time together at United, with the pair seemingly falling out regularly.

"Earlier in the season he was in and out of the team and that led to inconsistent performances in front of goal".

Going into today's game at Wembley, Pogba had scored four goals and assisted three more in just four Premier League games under the Norwegian, and the Frenchman was involved again today, playing a sublime, inch-perfect ball into the path of Marcus Rashford, who raced into the box to score the only goal of the game just before half-time.

"It was a big one for us". We were all determined and wanted to win this game.

Yes, the very man who brought so much happiness to his country in the summer after he transformed the nation's relationship with The Three Lions football team, bringing buckets of pride and joy to this small island once again. It was really hard with the system and tactics we used to play, I want to be more attacking, pressing, playing high.

"I like to be more attacking, pressing and play high rather than defending". The manager tells me to get into the box and score goals. Everything comes when you are more free, have the trust of the manager and the players, it makes it easy for me. Rather, by placing Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera alongside in midfield, the former Juventus player has freedom to break forward and cause havoc, as he did in the second half.
