   Manchester United are set to approach England coach Gareth Southgate about taking over at their club

An open second half saw both teams create a raft of chances, but Hugo Lloris and the exceptional De Gea came out on top, with United moving level on 41 points with fifth-placed Arsenal as a result.

The Red Devils showed moments of quality in the second half but Spurs tested out the full extent of their defence and David responded in fantastic fashion.

The England captain appeared to roll his ankle under heavy pressure from Manchester United defender's Phil Jones and Victor Lindelof in the dying stages of today's game, and speaking afterwards, Mauricio Pochettino admitted that he is anxious for the fitness of the England captain.

Paul Pogba took another swipe at José Mourinho last night by thanking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for giving him the attacking freedom to enjoy his football again.

Supporters have labelled De Gea as "not human", "incredible" and "amazing" while many described him as the best goalkeeper in the world following his performance against Tottenham today.

"I am so pleased and I'm proud", Pochettino told Sky Sports.

"We dominated in the first half but we didn't organise ourselves well when we lost Moussa Sissoko and that is how we conceded the goal". They are now nine points behind Liverpool and it would take a major collapse from the Merseysiders - as well as Manchester City - for Pochettino's men to triumph.

- Manchester United have kept back-to-back clean sheets in the Premier League - they'd only kept two in their first 20 league matches this season.

"We all enjoy playing football, playing together and that's what we did today". When I play, attack is where I feel the most comfortable.

"We are going to lose Son for the Asia Cup and if Harry Kane suffers an injury, it is going to be massive for us". I don't remember who [was involved], but it was a big hit, a foul.

'We've just had our best year in 28 years, we're in another semi-final next summer and I signed a new contract three months ago.
