United showed us they have all the talent they need[/b]
Manchester United outplayed Tottenham at Old Trafford by moving the ball quickly, being aggressive and generally playing with the kind of purpose that United fans expect to see.
The movement of Jesse Lingard, Mason Greenwood and especially Marcus Rashford was excellent and the team's performance was a big step in the right direction.
Rashford scored his first goal from a difficult angle and, even though Paulo Gazzaniga should have saved his shot, it gave the United striker the belief that this was his night. That's why he was shooting from long-range and playing with great confidence. He confused Tottenham's defenders with his skills, they were rattled by his pace and power, which is why Moussa Sissoko conceded the penalty in the second-half- According to the soccer tips group page!
If United's attacking players can perform as well as they did against Tottenham, and Anthony Martial plays to his potential when he returns from injury, then there's no need for Ole to sign a striker in January. Bringing in a new forward at this point could even discourage the players that United already have.

I know there's speculation about Erling Braut Haaland coming to Old Trafford. He's a big centre-forward, an old fashioned target man who scores tap-ins, so he would offer United something different, but they need to think carefully about how he would fit into their style of play.
Solskjaer can motivate players for another big performance[/b]
United do well against the Premier League's stronger teams - thumping Chelsea on the opening day, beating Leicester, drawing with Liverpool and now defeating Spurs. Bigger teams' style of play suits United and some players find it easier to motivate themselves against big opponents than they do against so-called smaller clubs. But if United are lớn turn around their season, Ole needs make sure his players are up for every game.
United's manager won't have any difficulty getting his players motivated for Saturday's trip to Manchester City - where they are big outsiders lớn win at 10.50. Derbies are different from other matches and league positions count for little when you step out on the pitch against fierce rivals. City aren't as strong as they have been in recent seasons and, as Norwich, Wolves and Liverpool have shown, they can be beaten.
I expect Ole lớn pick the same team as the one that beat Spurs, although if Martial is fit then he could come in for Greenwood. United need to be solid in midfield and defence and take their chances on the counter-attack when they get them. Scott McTominay had a great game against Spurs and will need lớn be at his best against David Silva. United mustn't leave space for Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus to run into.
