United vs Spurs: List of all records broken

David de Gea was the main architect of Manchester United's victory last night.

United managed to defeat Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley with a scoreline of 1-0.

United scored when Pogba set up Rashford with a brilliant assist which the 21-year-old complimented with a stupendous finish in the first half.

Tottenham were better in the second half, but de Gea alone held them at bay.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer equals Sir Matt Busby's record

This match was the most important test Solskjaer faced since taking charge of United, and he came out with flying colors.

With this win, Solskjaer created history by becoming the first Manchester United manager since the legendary Sir Matt Busby to win his first five league matches in charge.

Notably, Solskjaer has now won his first six games, as United's manager, across all competitions.

Tottenham

Tottenham have created a record they won't be proud of

Tottenham lost at home in consecutive league matches for the first time since 2015.

They have now lost four Premier League matches at home this season, twice the total number of losses they faced in the previous two seasons combined.

Harry Kane had 7 shots, failing to convert a single one, the same ordeal he faced against United in January 2018 (8 shots).
