Gary Lineker poses question to Man Utd fans after leapfrogging Liverpool

Manchester United moved to the top of the Premier League table with a hard fought 1-0 win over Burnley.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side knew avoiding defeat would see them leapfrog Liverpool, ahead of Sunday’s pivotal Anfield clash.

And following the win, the Match of the Day host took aim at pessimistic United fans, asking what was left for them to moan about.

He posted on Twitter: "So @ManUtd are top of the Premier League. What on earth are the 'this is Manchester United' doom-mongers going to whine about now?"

One fan that at the opposite end of the spectrum is Gary Neville.

The Red Devils legend is unapologetic in his support for his old club and told fellow supporters to enjoy the next few days after reaching the summit.

"I don't think anyone is saying Manchester United will win the league but the fact that they are in a title fight…wow. I never would have imagined it," said Neville.

"It's a strange season. Why shouldn't Manchester United fans believe? Why shouldn't this side believe? Look at the front three, look at that midfield four, look at Bruno Fernandes – they have some fantastic players.

"The other teams aren't in great form. Man City are sitting there cool and calm, nobody is really talking about them, but they are hitting very good form and that is a real danger.

“But in the next few days it is time to have a little bit of fun. It won't be a comfortable few days for Liverpool."

United could go six points clear of champions Liverpool at the weekend, with Neville adding that United could exploit the unpredictable element of the current season.

"l believe these players feel they can have a really special season.

“It's odd, it's changing every single week, you don't know what is going to happen and there's an element of unpredictability and Manchester United could exploit that."
