Manchester United made a swift return to the top of the Premier League as they came from behind to beat Fulham 2-1.
Having been briefly knocked off the summit by neighbours Manchester City's win over Aston Villa earlier on in the day, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men overcame the concession of an early Ademola Lookman strike to claim all three points.
Edinson Cavani and Paul Pogba provided the goals for the visitors, whose perhaps unexpected title charge remains on track at the halfway point of the campaign.
Fulham got off to a dream start as Lookman took advantage of Aaron Wan-Bissaka's failure to get in line with his fellow defenders, running in behind before producing a cool finish.
United responded well, though, with Bruno Fernandes rather unsurprisingly at the heart of an equaliser that came just 16 minutes later.
Seconds after cracking the post with a wicked effort from distance, the Portuguese swung in a cross that Alphonse Areola could only spill into the path of Edinson Cavani, who made no mistake from close range.
The visitors took great confidence from their quick response and dominated the remainder of the half, albeit without a goal to show for it.
That gave Fulham a chance to regroup at the break, which they almost capitalised on when Lookman tested David de Gea following a well-worked move involving Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
However, as had been the case in the first period, the hosts were unable to keep the pace up, allowing United to take control before an inevitable second goal.
When it came it was courtesy of Paul Pogba, who unleashed a brilliant left-footed drive into the far corner from the edge of the box.
Solskjaer's side created little as they looked to see out the game over the remaining half-hour, and were almost punished when only a strong De Gea save prevented Ruben Loftus-Cheek from scoring.
But they ultimately held on to claim a seventh Premier League away win of a season that promises much.
