De Gea made a string of superb saves to make it a sixth consecutive win for Solskjaer since taking charge.
With the in-form South Korean Son Heung-min playing his last match before heading off to the Asia Cup, the last thing Pochettino needed was the sight of Kane hobbling off the pitch after being clattered by United's Phil Jones late on.
But Pochettino insisted that the pair had overseen a "collective" battle and joked that he and Solskjaer would have had to take to the field for an individual duel.
Since Mourinho's departure, Pogba's form has spectacularly improved, scoring four goals and setting up as many - including the victor in Sunday's win at Tottenham - in five league games under Solskjaer, and the France worldwide puts it down to being given freedom. "I know I have security behind me and I have freedom to go, so yes it helps".
"I'm not going to judge his tactics".
"I am enjoying playing football". You only can talk about the game.

But he also has been a target of President Donald Trump , who previous year tweeted out a picture of Rosenstein behind bars. Rosenstein was seen by many as helping to protect Mueller from being fired and from other White House interference.
"I am enjoying playing my football now,"... They may still be six points behind Chelsea, who beat Newcastle United 2-1 yesterday, but United have closed the gap to Spurs to seven points and it has forced the bookmakers to slash United's odds for a top-four finish.
De Gea produced a big performance in the second half to keep Tottenham at bay after a staggering 11 saves to prevent Spurs from finding an equaliser.
"It wasn't the intention of the United player but it was a bad tackle and now he has bit of a swelling on his ankle and he was limping after the game". Then the next game Fulham against [Claudio] Ranieri, then [Chelsea boss Maurizio] Sarri.
Supporters have labelled De Gea as "not human", "incredible" and "amazing" while many described him as the best goalkeeper in the world following his performance against Tottenham today.
"But where [I'm playing now] with the team, we attack and I think my position there is where I feel most comfortable". Very very happy. I don't remember some of them (saves).
