Ole Gunnar Solksjaer Matched A Brilliant Alex Ferguson Record With United’s Win Over Burnley

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer hit an impressive milestone after Manchester United pipped Burnley yesterday night.

It is that the Norwegian become the first man in the United dugout to take the club to the top of the standings at this stage since Sir Alex Ferguson last won the Red Devils title in 2012-13.

For a man who’s so much loathed by the fanbase no thanks to the team’s inconsistency, that is simply outstanding. To say the least.

Solksjaer’s men huffed and puffed at Turf Moor and looked like they will be throwing it away just like they had often done. Not until Paul Pogba struck a half volley to ensure they leapfrogged Liverpool into first place.

Ole’s on the wheels. The last time United achieved such feat at this stage in that 2012-13 season, they eventually won the Premier League with 89 points, some 11 clear of their nearest city rivals.

Can the club replicate that feat under him now? I’m still not completely sold on their ability to win the title just yet, tbh. Not with the plethora of chances the attackers continue to pass up.

Nonetheless, Solksjaer can enjoy his moment until they visit Anfield on Sunday.
