"We can talk about Harry Kane and his class, I'm sure Marcus has got the potential to get up there".

Tottenham Hotspur will become the latest team to attempt to stop a rejuvenated Manchester United side when they welcome the Red Devils to Wembley on Sunday.

He's got frightening pace. Pogba is a very talented player, a great player of course.

"He's been brought up here so there were a couple of sessions with the young kids - [Tahith] Chong, Angel [Gomes] and him - and they play together in a certain way so he's a very exciting player to work with".

"He's become stronger and can hold the ball up for us", added the former United striker.

"The last five games haven't been too bad but there is always things to work on; the relationship between players, the cohesion and the understanding". Teddy Sheringham, Michael Carrick and Dimitar Berbatov were among those who swapped White Hart Lane for Old Trafford and Pochettino credits chairman Daniel Levy for stemming the exodus of key players.

This is a wonderfully illuminating piece from Ducker - one of the best United journalists out there - which details the way in which Solskjaer, through little more than practical man-management, has reversed the tide of despair cast by Mourinho.

He is quoted by the Manchester Evening News as saying: "I have good memories of him also because I remember when he scored after 90 minutes, I was there at the Camp Nou with my goalkeeper coach in 1999, and I remember him scoring the second goal in injury time". From the outside, he looks like that anyway.

"There may well be a bit of tiredness in the group and United need to use that to their advantage", Berbatov, who played for United and Spurs, said in an interview with Betfair.

"I think that's our strength as well, going forward and attacking, as a team when you look at us now the way we've played". "You don't plan five or six months ahead and then suddenly change that after two weeks".

"I think it's fantastic news because he is football", Pochettino told reporters at his news conference yesterday. I think the boys enjoyed it, we put a few principles down and I know they worked hard and I think they enjoy working hard as well.
