David de Gea produced a string of superb saves as Manchester United held on to beat Tottenham 1-0 and secure a sixth win in a row for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Marcus Rashford scored the winner late in the first half but Solskjaer was indebted to De Gea, who made no more than 11 saves to withstand a second-half Spurs barrage to seal the historic victory for the United interim manager.
The sixth straight win victory sees Solskjaer confirm the best start of any manager in Manchester United’s history, and sees him equal Sir Matt Busby’s five wins in his first five league games.
United move level with fifth-placed Arsenal as a result, and to within six points of the top four. Spurs remain third, nine points off Liverpool after suffering a huge dent in their title aspirations.
