Teddy Sheringham and Dimitar Berbatov watch on

There were two particularly interested observers at the game, with Teddy Sheringham and Dimitar Berbatov having represented both clubs.

Sheringham had two spells at Tottenham either side of his illustrious stint at United, which was between 1997 and 2001. 

Berbatov, who is currently a free agent, played for Tottenham between 2006 and 2008 before joining United for £30.75million. 

Berbatov was sat next to his former Tottenham team-mate Ledley King.

Legendary former United boss Sir Alex Ferguson also watched the match.

Sheringham and Berbatov weren't the only notable sports stars that watched the game, with NFL and Major League Baseball stars taking in the action at Wembley.

Ryan Fitzpatrick, who plays as a quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, enjoyed the game, as did baseball star Daniel Murphy, who plays for the Colorado Rockies.

Victor Lindelof makes his 50th appearance for United 

Victor Lindelof has had his ups and downs since joining United from Benfica in 2017, but the centre-back is impressing under Solskjaer.

The game against Tottenham was a significant occasion for Lindelof, who made his 50th appearance for United.

Lindelof will have been especially delighted that he marked the milestone with a clean sheet.

Solskjaer becomes first United manager to win his first six games in charge   

Solskjaer has received much praise for the work that he has done as United caretaker boss, and he set a new record with this victory.

Solskjaer became the first United manager to triumph in each of his first six games in charge of the club, with the win against Tottenham following on from successes against Cardiff, Huddersfield, Bournemouth, Newcastle and Reading.

Paul Pogba congratulates Hugo Lloris on save

They may have been on opposing sides on this occasion, but the mutual respect between Paul Pogba and Hugo Lloris was very much in evidence.

The pair know each other very well from the French national team and were part of Les Bleus' successful squad at the World Cup last year.

United midfielder Pogba took the opportunity to congratulate Lloris on preventing him from scoring in the second half.

Harry Winks goes for goal

Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks isn't known for his goalscoring prowess. In fact, he has scored just once for the club in 88 appearances.

There was a change in approach for Winks against United, however, as he had three attempts, which was more than he had mustered in his previous 18 league games combined this season. 

All of Winks' efforts were off target but he couldn't be faulted for trying. 

Harry Winks went for goal much more often against United than he usually does

Marcus Rashford thriving under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's guidance

Many United players are relishing playing under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and Rashford is chief amongst them.

Enjoying being deployed as a striker, Rashford scored in his third consecutive Premier League game for the first time as he followed on from his strikes against Bournemouth and Newcastle.

Anthony Martial reacts furiously to Kieran Trippier's shove

Tottenham defender Kieran Trippier endured a frustrating afternoon as his side fell to a defeat.

The right-back took his anger out on Anthony Martial on one occasion, shoving the United attacker.

However, Martial didn't take very kindly to that, and retaliated, with Winks and Jesse Lingard having to step in to calm the situation down.

Mike Dean tries out a new yellow card technique

Mike Dean is known for wanting to be the centre of attention and the referee tried out a new technique during this game.

Rather than simply showing the yellow card to Tottenham's Dele Alli, Dean instead chose to flick it in his direction.
