At midweek, Premier League action started, but how does the table look? With the new standings, Express Sport is on hand.

Manchester United went ahead of rivals Liverpool to the top of the Premier League table. On Tuesday night, United beat Burnley to go three points clear ahead of their Sunday clash at Anfield. In a hard-fought 1-0 victory at Turf Moor, Paul Pogba’s goal was the difference.

For the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson bowed out with the league title in 2012/13, the outcome puts the Red Devils top at this point of the season.

The biggest talking point of a tense opening time was the video assistant referee, with the last man Robbie Brady escaping penalty for taking down Edinson Cavani due to a Luke Shaw foul in the build-up.

The left-back, who had been booked for Johann Berg Gudmundsson’s heavy tackle, soon swung in the cross that Harry Maguire was heading home from an acute angle, only to be ruled out for an obvious foul on Erik Pieters.

The United captain was angry that the verdict was not checked and in the second half, his side flew out of the blocks.
