Marcus Rashford can become Man Utd’s Harry Kane, says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer


"I play a bit further forward and I've got the security behind me", Pogba told reporters at Wembley after helping United to a 1-0 win over Tottenham on Sunday.

However, Tottenham will face an in-form Man Utd side that have turned their season around since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer came in as caretaker manager to take over from Jose Mourinho following his dismissal last month.

Solskjaer hopes his one-to-one chats will help to get the best out of players such as Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez, expensive purchases who have had hard seasons.

Here, Press Association Sport delves into its picture archive to recall the match.

Speaking ahead of United's crucial clash against Tottenham on Sunday the Norwegian discussed the talents of Marcus Rashford who has enjoyed a new lease of life at the heart of United's attack since he joined the club. But consider that United's goalkeeper had 11 saves on the night, many of which were from close.

Rashford became a first-team player at United at 18, three years quicker than Kane at Spurs.

Tottenham have also rejected bids from the Spanish giants for Kane's teammate Christian Eriksen as the Danish worldwide is arguably playing the best football in his career this season.

"When you play in this Premier League every weekend, or every three days as we've been playing in the last few months, always it's about the opponent having a few players that can make the difference", Pochettino said. What channel is Spurs v Manchester United on?

"It's a good responsibility to have, but since this manager came in everybody has chipped in", he said.

The Norwegian is now in charge at Old Trafford until the end of the season, having replaced the sacked Jose Mourinho in December, a move created to give the club's board time to consider their options regarding a permanent replacement.

Liverpool are their opponents in the final and the game goes to penalties, where Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard both miss from 12 yards. That is football. Sometimes you deserve, and you not win, and sometimes you don't deserve too much, and you win. "The team spirit is fantastic and, secondly, we've shown we can defend today". I am disappointed with the result of course, but very happy with the reaction after conceding the goal. Maybe our performance wasn't the best but we competed very well.
