Manchester United legend Gary Neville has praised Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for bringing back the club’s identity after beating Tottenham at Wembley.
The Norwegian made it six wins out of six in his short reign so far as Marcus Rashford netted the only goal in the 1-0 victory.
David de Gea was almost solely responsible for the clean-sheet after putting in a remarkable performance to help secure all three points.
Neville didn’t hold back in his praise for what Solskjaer has done so far and supporters must now hope the interim manager gets the position permanently.
Gary Neville: “United look like the Manchester United of five, 10 years ago – the speed of the attack, running at players, being direct. The Tottenham defence don't like it at all." pic.twitter.com/Zvth0arQu1

The Red Devils could’ve been two or three up by half-time had it been for more clinical finishing but Marcus’ effort proved to be enough.
Mauricio Pochettino recognised his side’s weaknesses and effectively changed formations after the break but it was too late as the damage was already done.
Ole also seemed to ask his players to be more defensively aware after they appeared to tire in the second half but they still attempted shots on goal nonetheless.
The crucial victory pulls United level on points with Arsenal and just six away from Chelsea in fourth spot.
