Manchester United attacker Marcus Rashford has revealed the tactics deployed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to defeat Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Sunday at the Wembley.

The England international revealed a change in their usual formation and style ensured they got the best in the game against Mauricio Pochettino’s men. He believes that the ability for Manchester United to switch to different tactics was what helped the Old Trafford giant triumph over the home team.

Manchester United previous games Rashford was played in the centre forward role flanked by Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard but Lingard played a deeper more central role against Tottenham which allowed the wide players more freedom on the wings.

"We played a slightly different system, but against a team like this, it was needed," Rashford told Sky Sports.

"The other teams we have played have played pretty much the same system so today it was a different game and we played differently and the tactics changed but that is what we have to do to be one of the top teams, we have to adapt. And we keep pushing and improving.”
