Solskjaer set to break EPL record

Manchester United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, is set to break a 27-year-old record at Old Trafford when his side tackle Southampton in the Premier League on Monday night.

Solskjaer’s side is in the middle of a 17-game unbeaten run in all competitions, and United will go third on the Premier League table ahead of Chelsea and Leicester City if they beat Southampton tonight.

Man United have not lost a match since the restart of the Premier League.

Their last three games have all ended with margins of three goals, with the likes of Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes and Anthony Martial in great form.
