United's number 9 scored a magnificent hat-trick in the 3-0 win against 'The Blades' at Old Trafford. It was the first hat-trick for an United player after Sir Alex Ferguson retired from his managerial post back in 2013. The dynamic duo of Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes has provided the perfect link-up in the mid-field and it seems that Solksjaer has got his perfect XI since he was appointed as a manager in 2019.

It was also the Frenchman's inaugural career hat-trick,moving to a best ever tally of 19 in all competitions for United who continued their unbeaten streak to 13 matches and took their points tally to 49 with just two points clear of fourth-placed Chelsea. Marcus Rashford who could have doubled the lead, missed a golden opportunity to score his first goal since he returned from his injury but later on provided two good assists in his name.

In another match Liverpool won over Crystal Palace (4-0) and are just few inches away from getting their first ever PL Title in 30 years. Klopp's side found the net four times, courtesy of magnificent goals from Alexander Arnold,Salah,Fabinho and Mane. If Man City fail to to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Thursday then Liverpool will be crowned champions.
