The visitors then held on to the lead and claimed their sixh consecutive win since the arrival of new boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Speaking after the victory, Solskjaer had this to say about De Gea: “Fantastic. Obviously when you make 11 saves it is a top performance, but even so, two of them were top saves but the rest you would expect David to make.”

He added: “We defended well as a team and when you play against Harry Kane you are always going to be tested. It was just a complete team performance.

“I know why I am here and I know what my job description is, and I’m doing what I can to help the team. We expect to win every game at Man United.”

The result leaves Spurs nine points behind leaders Liverpool and United level on points with fifth-placed Arsenal as they revive their top-four hopes.
