  • Football: Spurs' Pochettino recalls how he cheered United counterpart Solskjaer's 1999 Champions League final goal

They will meet at Wembley on Monday morning, but 20 years ago Mauricio Pochettino was watching Ole Gunnar Solskjaer perform Champions League miracles for Manchester United at Camp Nou.

Solskjaer, loaned to United by Norwegian club Molde for the rest of this season, reiterated that there have been no discussions with United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward over the permanent job despite his desire to take the hot seat.

Manchester United are in a delicate position and, after all three of Alex Ferguson's successors have failed to emulate the legendary manager's previous achievements, the importance of United's next appointment can not be underestimated.

Mauricio Pochettino was the name on everyone's lips when Jose Mourinho paid his bill and checked out of The Lowry Hotel following his sacking by United in mid-December, the Argentine long linked with Old Trafford even before "The Special One" bit the dust after defeat at Liverpool.

"Obviously it's a tough venue to come to", Solskjaer said after the win. Can they extend that solid defensive form against Tottenham, one of the top attacking units in the Premier League this season?

Speaking upon his return from United's warm weather training camp in Dubai this week, Solskjaer said: "He can become a top, top striker".


Gareth Southgate is one of the names on Manchester United's shortlist of potential long-term managers to replace Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, according to reports.

NBC Sports network will broadcast Tottenham versus Manchester United.

Sir Alex Ferguson looked like a proud father as the goalkeeper he signed in 2011 flourished at Wembley under the guidance of a player who sealed the treble for his side in 1999. Especially once Moussa Sissoko, who had so ably shackled Paul Pogba, picked up an injury and had to go off.

Lucas Moura could also be missing for Spurs as he faces a late fitness test, having played a key role in the last meeting of these two teams. Had Spurs' players shot for the corners rather than within De Gea's radius then the home side would certainly have turned it around.

Manchester United picked up their fifth Premier League win in a row at the expense of Tottenham Hotspur earlier today and it was a major blow to Spurs' title aspirations. "We know how to control the games, how to keep the ball, how to create chances, and that's very good for us". He lost his man on a few occasions, leaving David de Gea to save him from the embarrassment. David de Gea was at his very best as he saved everything that came his way.
