Ole Gunnar Solskjaer enjoys top spot but ready for Liverpool test


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was pleased by the dogged victory at Burnley that propelled Manchester United top of the Premier League ahead of Sunday’s “great test” at reigning champions Liverpool. Paul Pogba’s deflected second-half volley secured the Red Devils a hard-fought 1-0 win in sub-zero conditions at Turf Moor, where Harry Maguire saw an opener controversially ruled out. The result saw United go top at this stage of the season for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson bowed out as champion in 2012-13, giving them a three-point cushion over Liverpool ahead of Sunday’s trip to Anfield.
