Manchester United beat Burnley 1-0 at Turf Moor on Tuesday night to go three points clear at the top of the table.
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba scored the only goal of the game in the second half to send the Red Devils to the top of the Premier League.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United set a record following the victory over Manchester United.
This is the first time Manchester United have ended the day top of the Premier League table, having played as many as 17 games, since the final day of their title-winning campaign in 2012-13 under Sir Alex Ferguson.
In the seven seasons since Ferguson retired, United have never been higher than second at this stage of the season.
