Man United Could Finally Top Of The Premier League Table After 8 Years.

Manchester United could top the Premier League after New Year’s Day tonight for the first time since they last won the title in 2013 according to Sky sports stats.

The last time Manchester United topped the Premier League two years and two months ago in August 2018 but it has been a much longer wait since they topped the table after New Year’s Day in a season.

It tooks Manchester United almost 8 years to go top of the premier league table in the new year day. The last time Man United toped the premier League table at the beggining of new year was their last title-winning campaign, in the season-finale 5-5 goal-fest at West Brom, which also marked Sir Alex Ferguson’s final game in charge after a 26-year reign at the club.
