BIG GAME

United claimed a 1-0 win over Spurs in the Premier League blockbuster

Manchester United made it six wins on the bounce for Ole Gunnar Solskjaerafter a 1-0 success at Tottenham.

Marcus Rashford fired home a first-half winner and David De Gea was superb in the thrilling Wembley clash. Here are talkSPORT’s player ratings for the Premier League showdown.

Man United beat Tottenham 1-0 at Wembley

Tottenham

HUGO LLORIS:There were slight question marks over his effort for United’s goal having got a hand to Marcus Rashford’s effort, but made three fine saves after the break. 7 (out of 10)

KIERAN TRIPPIER:Was at fault for United’s opening goal as he carelessly gave possession away to Paul Pogba and was under par throughout most of the game. 5

TOBY ALDERWEIRELD:Playing against the team who were keen to sign him in the summer, he was the most assured of Tottenham’s back line and almost scored. 6

JAN VERTONGHEN:Making his first start after eight games out with a thigh injury, his lack of pace was exposed by United’s speedy frontline. 5

BEN DAVIES:Davies registered his 100th Premier League appearance for Spurs and was solid, if unspectacular. 6

MOUSSA SISSOKO:Was putting himself about in his usual all-action style until suffering a groin injury before half-time. Spurs conceded two minutes later. 6

HARRY WINKS:Who knows how the game might have gone if Winks stuck away an early chance. Poor. 5

Man United beat Tottenham 1-0 at Wembley

CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN:Linked with a move to Real Madrid in the summer, Eriksen stepped up after a poor first half and was often the architect of endless Tottenham attacks. 7

DELE ALLI:Had three fine chances to equalise, the second of which he should have buried, but came up against an inspired David De Gea. 6

SON HEUNG-MIN:Playing his last game before heading to Dubai to join up with South Korea at the Asian Cup but did not have the impact he would have hoped for. 5

HARRY KANE:On another day he would have had a hat-trick but De Gea had other ideas. Was Tottenham’s main goal threat and produced impressive link-up play. 6

SUBS

ERIK LAMELA(on for Sissoko 43): Tried to offer a different dimension in attack but invariably chose the wrong option. 5

FERNANDO LLORENTE(on for Winks 81): Thrown on as part of the cavalry, missed a golden chance. 4

Manchester United

DAVID DE GEA:Had nothing to do in the first half but won United the game with an incredible second-half display, making a string of fantastic saves. 10

ASHLEY YOUNG: One of two players to retain their place from the FA Cup win against Reading, he worked hard and provide attacking impetus. 7

VICTOR LINDELOF:Made his 50th United appearance and continued his good form with a solid performance. 7

PHIL JONES:Remains the only other option to partner Lindelof due to injuries and suspension. Did well enough under incessant second-half pressure. 6

LUKE SHAW:Not as much licence to maraud down the left but did his work diligently. 7

ANDER HERRERA:Nobody will question the midfielder’s workrate, but some of the quality was missing. 6

NEMANJA MATIC:Not enjoyed the best of seasons but shielded the defence well, especially in the first half. 7

Man United beat Tottenham 1-0 at Wembley

JESSE LINGARD:Missed an early chance but his presence helped unsettle Tottenham in a key area of the field. 6

PAUL POGBA:Back from a leg injury that kept him out against Reading, the World Cup winner produced another excellent display under Solskjaer. 9

ANTHONY MARTIAL:Tried a few tricks and flicks on the wing and stretched the backline, but faded after the break. 5

MARCUS RASHFORD:Handed the chance to continue his fine form and did just that, firing United to victory with an exceptional low strike from an acute angle. 8

SUBS

ROMELU LUKAKU(for Martial, 73): Provided a threat on the counter-attack but his side were mainly defending after coming back on. 5

DIOGO DALOT(for Lingard, 83): Brought on for late reinforcements. 5

SCOTT MCTOMINAY(for Pogba, 90): His introduction was a time-wasting exercise. N/A
