Man Utd may re-evaluate their transfer priorities after beating Tottenham to take a huge step towards securing second place in the Premier League

Manchester United's football director John Murtough could save millions in the summer transfer window following Sunday's win over TottenhamOle Gunnar Solskjaer's side won 3-1 to take a huge step towards securing second place in the Premier League, going seven points clear of third-placed Leicester City.

United cut Manchester City's lead at the top to 11 points, and the Red Devils could be just eight points behind their neighbours by the time Pep Guardiola's side next play in the league.

It is still high unlikely they will catch City, but they can certainly lay down a marker for next season after one of their best away performances of the season in the second half at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

After being 1-0 down at the break to Son Heung-min's opener, the Red Devils turned it around impressively, with goals from Fred, Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood earning victory over Jose Mourinho's men.

Paul Pogba was one of United's best players, providing a threat on the left side of the attack where he has shown his best form this season.

Marcus Rashford was switched over to the right wing to get the best out of the Frenchman, with the England striker replaced by Greenwood midway through the second half.

Pogba set up Cavani's first-half effort which was disallowed, should have scored with a near-post finally flick, before laying on Greenwood's last-gasp goal in the sixth minute of added time.

In between, Greenwood had provided the cross for Cavani to give United the lead after Fred's equaliser.

And it could be that Solskjaer has found a fix to a position that has proved a problem for some time.

Of course, much will depend on whether Pogba stays at United this summer, with the midfielder continuing to be linked with an Old Trafford exit.

There is also, of course, the argument that signing Sancho would enhance United's attack still further - giving Solskjaer a range of options in attack.

But if Pogba can be persuaded to stay, football director Murtough could concentrate United's transfer kitty on signing a striker such as Erling Haaland or Harry Kane - as well as the top-class defensive partner for Harry Maguire that the club so desperately need.
