Tottenham boss Pochettino says Man United rumours no 'motivation' for Solskjaer

Four of those came against sides now in the bottom half of the table, while the other was over Championship strugglers Reading in the FA Cup third round last time out.

Solskjaer has endeared himself to supporters by getting this team playing forwards and with aggression once more, a strategy which allowed for Man United to claim five wins against five opponents they should beat quite easily.

Pochettino said he was present on one of the greatest nights in Ferguson's 27 glittering years as United boss - the 1999 Champions League final at Barcelona's Nou Camp when substitute Solskjaer scored a stoppage-time victor against Bayern Munich.

"No, nothing's changed. We just keep working every single day on improving the team here".

"For him it's a massive motivation or challenge to manage Manchester United, like for me it's a massive challenge to be in front for this football club, Tottenham". We were neutral people watching a fantastic game. "If we want to get closer to [Tottenham], we need a good performance and a good result". "It was this type of moment; on Sunday we are going to meet at Wembley when 20 years ago I was shouting for a goal that he scored for Manchester United".

Perhaps the biggest beneficiary of United's change in management has been Paul Pogba, though, with the Frenchman beginning to show the type of form we knew he was capable of.

Solskjaer said: "You always adapt to any opposition, they are one of best in the leagues so we have to be aware of their strengths". Pogba is a very talented player, a great player of course.

"There were a couple of sessions here with the young kids - Chongy [Tahith Chong] and Angel [Gomes], him and Jesse [Lingard] - they played together in a certain way".

Ferguson reportedly gave a rousing speech to United's first-team squad after being invited back by Solskjaer recently - his first appearance at the training ground since emergency surgery for a bleed on the brain last May.

"Of course, when you're a manager or coach you can not be focused on all the rumours. It's easier to play an attacking way and your way when you've got good players, and he's got lots of good players".
