Ole Gunnar Solskjaer now stands alone as having the best record to start a Manchester United managerial career after their win at Tottenham.

Prior to the crunch Wembley clash, Solskjaer, like Sir Matt Busby, had won his first five matches in charge since being parachuted in to replace Jose Mourinho on an interim basis.

Marcus Rashford’s goal made it six in a row for Solskjaer, and here, Press Association Sport charts them all.

This was billed as the first acid test of Solskjaer’s tenure and United came through it, albeit thanks to a fine goalkeeping performance from David De Gea. Rashford scored the winner, but the Spaniard was the hero.
