Pogba puts United in the lead

The 'red devils' are leaders of the Premier three years later. A goal from the midfielder gave Ole Gunnar Solskjær's three points.


Manchester United are the Premier League's solo leaders for the first time since August 2017. Three and a half years ago, with Mourinho on the bench, the Red Devils got off to a good start to the season, but then slowly succumbed to City. The difference with 2021 is that it is almost half a season and Solskjaer's team is still there, setting the pace, ahead of all their rivals, with the goal set on the title. De Gea has said it, Bruno Fernandes has said it and Solskjaer himself has said it: they must not miss this opportunity. The last time they were leaders as of January was in 2013, Sir Alex Ferguson's final year ... and the last Premier they raised. This year they want to fight her to the end. A 0-1 win at Burnley's field will help.

Pogba's goal in the final stretch gave the visiting team three points. The French midfielder first impaled a good cross from Rashford and, taking advantage of a rebound, edged past Pope on Turf Moor. Solskjaer gave the start to Cavani and behind he put Bruno Fernandes, Rashford and Martial. All the meat on the spit to storm the leadership of Liverpool. However, neither had their perfect night. Nor did Van de Beek, but this one literally: he did not have a night because he did not even take the field, once again a substitute, once again all the time on the bench after having played in the FA Cup.

Burnley prepared the usual match in their field. They lock themselves up, one winger on each wing and two strong forwards up, while the four defenders are dedicated to getting balls out of the area every time the rival arrives. In the first half, Maguire had a goal disallowed for a header foul, while the use of VAR forgave Shaw a red.
