Manchester United regained their spot at the top of the Premier League with a 2-1 win over Fulham courtesy of an exceptional Paul Pogba strike.
United started their game against Fulham, knowing that they needed a win to leapfrog rivals Manchester City at the top of the table after Pep Guardiola's men won 2-0 at home to Aston Villa.
They almost immediately suffered a setback when Ademola Lookman seized on a long ball to finish past David de Gea, but United did not lower their heads. They were rewarded midway through the first half when Edinson Cavani pounced to equalize.
In the second half, United turned up the pressure, but Fulham still had the chance to keep Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men occasionally threatened.
It looked as if United might struggle to find another goal, that was until a moment of magic from Pogba, whose brilliant control and quick feet worked space for a shot at goal, giving Alphonse Areola no chance.
In the day's earlier game, neither City nor Aston Villa could break down their opponent's defense in the first half, though the home side made the better fist of it.
Guardiola's players seized the chance of going top - at least until United played Fulham later on - but looked to be on course for a point when Emi Martinez was equal to an effort from Bernardo Silva in the early stages of the game.
Rodri went close with a shot that deflected off Raheem Sterling, and for Villa, Ross Barkley brought a decent stop from Ederson.
In the second half, City ramped up the pressure, and Joao Cancelo hit the post as the home side laid siege to their rivals' goal.
With 11 minutes of normal time remaining, Silva seized on an error from Tyrone Mings, drove towards goal, and curled a superb shot past Martinez. In the aftermath, Villa boss Dean Smith saw red for dissent after claiming Rodri was offside in the build-up.
Gabriel Jesus then won a penalty in the 89th minute as Matty Cash handled his goalbound header, with Ilkay Gundogan scoring to secure three points and top the division. For a couple of hours, anyway.
