A delighted Paul Pogba asserted it is always a pleasure to be on the winning side after scoring the lone goal in their victory of the Burnley on Tuesday.
With the victory Manchester United have gone on the top of the Premier League for the first time in last three years.
Despite continued speculation over his future, Pogba has played an increasingly important role in recent weeks to aid United's first serious title challenge since legendary former manager Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men now lead defending champions Liverpool by three points ahead of a top-of-the-table clash between the two most successful sides in English football history at Anfield on Sunday.
"I'm always happy when I win," said Pogba, who has been consistently linked with a move away from Old Trafford at the end of the season.
"I'm happy we are playing well and happy we are at the top, but there is a long way to go and we have big games coming up." United have now taken 29 from the last possible 33 points to recover from just two wins in their opening six games of the season.
The signing of Bruno Fernandes shortly after Burnley won 2-0 at Old Trafford nearly a year ago in the last meeting between the sides has transformed United's fortunes.
And if Pogba can finally produce consistent displays worthy of the then world record fee United paid for the Frenchman in 2016, there is reason for Solskjaer to believe he can end the club's eight-year wait for a league title.
Meanwhile, Everton moved back into the top four and within four points of United as they overcame an injury crisis to beat Wolves 2-1 at Molineux.
