On Wednesday, a spectacular Paul Pogba goal helped Manchester United come from behind to beat Fulham 2-1 again and climb back to the top of the Premier League.

Again, United conceded first on the road this season, as Ademola Lookman was given all of the time in the world to give his side a fifth-minute lead.

United conceded first on the road in the Premier League seven times this season, then recovered seven times to score, with Edinson Cavani scoring a poacher’s goal in the 25th minute before Pogba fired a 25-yard thunderbolt home to win it in the second half.

With a victory over Aston Villa earlier on Wednesday night, Manchester City had climbed back to the top of the table, but another away-day performance sent United back above their noisy neighbors, though Fulham remained in the bottom three.
