Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said David de Gea was making a case to be considered Manchester United’s greatest-ever goalkeeper after he produced a masterclass on Sunday to protect his side’s 1-0 lead against Tottenham.

The match at Wembley pitted two of the bookmakers’ favourites to permanently replace Jose Mourinho against one another but it was the interim United boss who came out on top against Mauricio Pochettino.

Marcus Rashford scored the only goal in the 44th minute of a thrilling encounter but the performance of the Spanish goalkeeper will live long in the memory.

He made 11 saves, the most he has made in a top-flight league match without conceding a goal - leaving Spurs players holding their heads in disbelief on multiple occasions.
