Paul Pogba scored a superb winner to beat Fulham 2-1 on Wednesday and Manchester United reclaimed the top spot in the Premier League.
Manchester United started the match third in the table after 24 hours of chopping and changing at the summit.
The win sent the Red Devils two points clear and equaled the club record of 17 Premier League away games without defeat set by the treble-winning side of 1999.
Pogba, back in the starting line-up in recent weeks after a spell on the periphery of Solskjaer’s team put United in front with a stunning left-foot curling effort from outside the area in the second half.
United have now won seven Premier League games after going behind this season.
The win takes Red Devils to 40 points, two more than both Leicester and Manchester City, who had briefly taken the top spot from the Foxes with a 2-0 win over Aston Villa on Wednesday.
