David de Gea was the toast of Twitter while the disdain for Jose Mourinho was on display again as Manchester United showed a strong performance to beat Tottenham 1-0 at Wembley.
Marcus Rashford netted for Manchester United late in the first half to give Manchester United their sixth consecutive win under new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær.
Manchester United had De Gea to thank for the three points as the goalkeeper pulled off a couple of saves in the game and Twitter lavished praises on him after the game.
