Manchester United beat Fulham to reclaim top position

French midfielder Paul Pogba was on target as Manchester United came from behind to beat Fulham and reclaim top position.

Ole Gunner Solskjaer’s side found themselves behind in the 5th minute when Lookman beat the offside trap before driving the ball past De Gea.

Alphonse Areola blocked a Bruno Fernandes strike only to drop in front of Edison Cavani who fired it into the back of the net beating his former teammate.

In the 65th minute, Paul Pogba created room for himself before firing a long shot ball into the far right side of the Fulham post beating the goalkeeper in the process.

The win takes Manchester United to their 17th unbeaten run in the Premier League in away matches in what has become a familiar pattern for the Red Devils.

Speaking after the match, Solskjaer praised Paul Pogba describing him as a player who is at the top of his form and bringing into the field the much needed experience to drive the club forward.

The Red Devils now stand at pole position with 40 points, two points ahead of Manchester City who won their Thursday fixture against Aston Villa.

They will however not sit back after the win as the Premier League is unpredictable with so many other clubs grouped in the top positions.
