It is beginning to look Manchester City’s title to lose after they made it nine straight Premier League wins following their comfortable victory at Burnley where they barely broke sweat.
Former Everton player Leon Osman, who was a pundit on BBC 5Live, believes Manchester United’s win at Burnley, which took them top of the Premier League for the first time since they last won the title in 2013, could be a pivotal moment in their campaign.
Battling Burnley blunted Tottenham’s cutting edge, but it was still not enough to pick up points in their battle to climb out of the Premier League’s relegation places.
It was events in the sky which overshadowed Manchester City’s thumping home win against Burnley.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was not born and assistant manager Mike Phelan only two days old when Burnley last won at Manchester United.
