Norwegian could become the first manager to triumph in his first seven Premier League matches in charge

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is on course to make Premier League history after winning his first six matches in charge of Manchester United, the latest victory coming against Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday.

That 2-1 win meant the Norwegian has become only the third manager of any club to achieve that feat in the competition, after Carlo Ancelotti and Pep Guardiola did so with Chelsea and Manchester City respectively.

Neither Ancelotti nor Guardiola was able to extend their run to a seventh straight match, so Solskjaer can set a new mark when his Man Utd side host Burnley at Old Trafford on Tuesday, 29 January.

The 45-year-old also has a chance to beat the record for the longest unbeaten start in charge of a PL club, which was set by Maurizio Sarri earlier this season.

The Italian avoided defeat in his first 12 top-flight fixtures with Chelsea, before suffering a 3-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley Stadium on 24 November.
