Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made it six wins from six as Manchester United manager following a narrow 1-0 win against Tottenham at Wembley.
Marcus Rashford opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time from Paul Pogba’s magnificent pass but it was United keeper, David de Gea, who stole the headlines. The Spaniard made 11 saves in total to keep the Lilywhites at bay, including world-class stops to deny Harry Kane and Dele Alli at close range. United were able to hold on for all three points to keep their Premier League top-four hopes alive after moving level on points with Arsenal.
United’s interim boss significantly boosted his chances of becoming the permanent manager at Old Trafford winning every game during his spell so far. Solskjaer has returned United to their attacking ways, helping players like Pogba flourish. If he is given the role in the long-term, he should continue to add flair to his current roster of players.
The ideal target would be Bournemouth wonderkid – David Brooks. Valued at £10.8m by Transfermarkt, the Wales international burst on to the scene last season with Sheffield United. The former Manchester City youth star was handed an opportunity in the first-team and impressed enough to earn a £10m move to the Cherries in the summer.
Brooks hasn’t been fazed by the challenges of the Premier League, becoming an important player for Eddie Howe so far this season. The 21-year-old has found the back of the net five times as well as registering two assists in the league and the playmaker is only getting better. Displaying excellent technical ability, dribbling skills and vision – Brooks possesses all the attributes to thrive under the Norwegian legend at the Theatre of Dreams.
The Red Devils should usher in a new era in Manchester by landing one of the country’s most promising prospects.
