Manchester United went level with Liverpool at the top of the Premier League after their 2-1 win over Aston Villa - their highest New Year position since the days of Alex Ferguson.

It's an impressive run for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side after their Champions League exit, and promises an exciting second half of the season.

As they attempt to maintain a title challenge, David de Gea again tops the charts as the highest earner at Manchester United.

The Spaniard is now in his ninth season at Old Trafford, and for the first time in that period he has genuine competition for the No 1 position.

A costly mistake in last season's FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea had many questioning whether the Spaniard could be usurped this term by the returning Dean Henderson, who impressed on loan at Sheffield United last season as the blades finished eighth.

And while that may still be the case, it seems no one will dislodge De Gea as the club's top earner.

According to Spotrac, an online sports team and player contract website, the Spaniard still takes home the biggest wage packed at Old Trafford - a whopping £375,000 a week (more than Dh1.8 million).

That amounts to an annual salary of £19.5 million for the United No 1.
