English record champions Manchester United have replaced Liverpool FC from team manager Jürgen Klopp as leaders before the top game in the Premier League.
The Red Devils won 1-0 (0-0) in the catch-up game at Burnley FC on Tuesday and are three points ahead of the defending champions before the direct duel on Sunday.
“Job done, let’s go to the next one,” tweeted United after the job win in view of the eagerly awaited clash between the two arch-rivals at Anfield.
“The result is disappointing, but we gave them a lot of problems. We had some good chances,” said Burnley defender James Tarkowski.
Manchester is the Premier League team of the hour with 22 points from their last eight games. Away, the team of team manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been unbeaten for 15 games – the second longest series of its kind in the history of the Red Devils.
The favorite struggled for a long time on the Turf Moor before the French world champion Paul Pogba made the decision with a deflected volleyball hit (71st).
“When you celebrated the goal you could feel the unity of the team. That was a great moment for United’s season,” said ex-professional and BBC expert Leon Osman.
