Manchester United can jump to the top of the Premier League table after the start of the new year for the first time since their crowning the title in 2013, in the event of a tie or beating Burnley on Tuesday evening.
The last time Manchester United reached the top of the league table, in general, was nearly two years ago, specifically in August of 2018, but the team did not lead the standings after the start of the new year-long ago.
United reached the top of the league after the start of the new year for the last time 8 years ago, at which point the Red Devils won the title in the last season of the legendary coach Sir Alex Ferguson.
