Manchester United are top of the Premier League this morning after a 2-1 win over Fulham last night.
It was Fulham to open the scoring, Ademola Lookman getting off the mark with just five minutes on the clock before Edinson Cavani equalised from close range for the visitors.
In-form Paul Pogba got United’s winner with a brilliant left-footed drive from outside the box.
“He does everything. We know Paul can do more-or-less everything that’s asked of a midfielder. Now, he’s putting all the elements together in the same performances which is great to see”, said United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer of the Frenchman after the game”
Meanwhile there was some controversy in Man City’s win over Aston Villa at the Etihad in the late kick off.
Boss Pep Guardiola feels allowing their opening goal to stand last night must have been the right decision due to the amount of technology in the game now.
Aston Villa were left furious after Rodri came back from an offside position and setup City’s first in the 2-0 Premier League win.
Guardiola, however, is sure the right call was made.
“I know they complain on the touchline, the players, and VAR is there. I don’t know exactly what is the rule, but VAR is there so, if it was offside I’m pretty sure the goal would have been disallowed.”
Late goals from Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan handed City the three points.
Tonight, defending champions Liverpool host Burnley at Anfield.
The Reds are without a win in four top flight matches, and manager Jurgen Klopp is hoping that will change after Manchester United earned a point on Merseyside last weekend.
Joel Matip is in contention for a return to Liverpool’s back four, with the match to kick off at 8pm.
