As it stands - The 2-1 win moved us back to within two points of leaders Leicester City, who beat Norwich 1-0 on Saturday. We edged three points ahead of Arsenal after United beat the Gunners 3-2 at Old Trafford.

Record-equalling run in the Premier League - Sunday's win made it six on the trot in the Premier League and that equals our best yet in the PL era, set between October 23-December 3, 2011. The club's best ever is a run of 13 straight wins between April 23-October 1, 1960 - famously including the first 11 matches of the double campaign.
