Pogba lauds 'freedom' under new Manchester United boss Solksjaer

It remains to be seen how much longer can Ole Gunner Solskjaer maintain United's incredible run of form but he has already changed the shape of Manchester United on and off the pitch since he took over. The only area where Romelu Lukaku was notably superior was his capacity to score goals. After a horrendous start to the Premier League season, fans and critics alike had their reservations regarding Manchester United but they have bounced back to their very best.

Former United defender Gary Neville hailed the impact his former Old Trafford teammate Solskjaer has had since he replaced the sacked Jose Mourinho last month.

"I was benched, and a football player on the bench; I'm not sure if he can accept that", Pogba added later.

"I believe he should be Man United's number one choice for the job and they should do whatever they can to get him".

Mourinho routinely dropped Pogba and criticised his performances, while he also went as far as saying the Frenchman would not captain the team again while he was manager after wearing the armband earlier in the season.

And Redknapp has been impressed with Pogba's resurgence under Solskjaer. "And we're winning, so indeed we play with a smile always".

"We've got the best goalkeeper in the world - I've said that many times - and we've got blistering pace up front and the goal was fantastic by Rash". "I'm not going to talk about [a battle with Solskjaer]".

The Red Devils relied on a sensational performance from David de Gea to keep Spurs out and give them a six consecutive victory. The manager brought some happiness, the players are playing well and the team is very strong now.

However, Mauricio Pochettino's side had the misfortune of coming up against David De Gea in full "none shall pass" mode, with the Spain goalkeeper making no less than 11 exemplary saves over the course of the evening to deny Harry Kane and co.

"Obviously it's a tough venue to come to", Solskjaer said after the win.

Speaking to Sky Sports after Sunday's game, Redknapp said: "He looks like the Paul Pogba from the World Cup". It was really hard with the system and tactics we used to play, I want to be more attacking, pressing, playing high.

"So, for the next few years what the club need to do is bring in a manager that can seriously get United competing with (Manchester) City and Liverpool and of the options available, Pochettino is the man to do that".
