Interim manager Ole Gunnar Soksjaer has bettered a record set by the legendary Matt Busby after Sunday's victory, to become the only manager to have won each of his first six league games in charge of the club.
The Norwegian though received a favourable fixture schedule when appointed to replace Jose Mourinho with Tottenham the first big test of the Solskjaer era.
Manchester United were eight points behind Arsenal just over 25 days ago when Solskjaer took over but are now level on points after an impressive six-game winning streak.
Sterner tests though face the Red Devils with the quality and depth of the squad set to be tested when they welcome Liverpool to Anfiled shortly after a Champions League clash against Paris Saint-Germain.
Man United next welcome Brighton to Old Trafford and on paper will be firm favourites to extend their winning streak in the league before a tough clash away to Arsenal in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
Soksjaer's side then face fixtures against Burnley, Leicester, Fulham before a clash against current league leaders Liverpool.
