David Moyes seems to have discovered the habit of winning over the last couple of months, and his side currently sit fifth in the Premier League table, knowing they could go as high as third this weekend should other results go their way.
The win over Arsenal a fortnight ago proved massive for so many reasons, firstly as it put United right back in the hunt for the title, but secondly as it gave Moyes his first big win over a major rival.
Chelsea held on for a dire 0-0 at Old Trafford back in August, whilst bitter rivals Liverpool and Manchester City have both picked up wins over Moyes this season.
Robin Van Persie’s winner against his former club could well be viewed as the seasons turning point come May, but another pivotal moment will no doubt be the January transfer window.
Moyes is set to spend big after messing things up so dramatically in the summer.
You could argue the United boss has been paying for his mistakes since, but now seemingly back on track, some big signings in January could well see United finish the season in glory, as they have done so often in the past.
Here we have identified five potential signings that would be sure to get United fans out of their seat.
