A home win, allied with Manchester City dropping two points away to Burnley, has seen the gap at the top of the Premier league reduced to thirteen points.

Now we`re still not predicting United can overtake their neighbours and claim the 2017 / 2018 Premier League title, but what we can do is bring you some fascinating facts relating to the fixture against Huddersfield Town.

? In netting the opening goal, Romelu Lukaku scored in back-to-back Premier League games at Old Trafford for the first time since September 2017.

? Yesterday was Huddersfield Town`s first Premier League visit to Old Trafford, they became the 20th consecutive side to lose that first game.

? Manchester United kept their 15th clean-sheet of the season in this game, that`s more than any other Premier League side.

? Alexis Sanchez was fouled on 7 occasions in the match, nobody had been fouled more in a single Premier League game this season.

? Huddersfield, who started the season well, have now fallen into the relegation zone and this was the 10th time they`d failed to score in an away game in the Premier League.
