Life is pretty darn sweet for our Manchester United supporters who are ordering the double measure spirits in the Football Transfer Tavern right now in celebration at being top of the Premier League.
Having pegged back and now exceeded Manchester City’s tally at the summit with the Citizens having lost emphatically at Tottenham at the weekend, Louis van Gaal’s United are top again for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson was still in charge back in May 2013.
If the truth be told, nobody was and is expecting United to win the Premier League this term considering van Gaal is still midway through imposing his philosophy with the Red Devils still looking like a team in transition at times but with the Swansea City defeat now behind them, United seem to be putting a consistent little run together.
Going up against Arsenal at Emirates Stadium on Sunday, that huge fixture will tell us a lot more about United’s title prospects this term and lets not forget, van Gaal managed to earn a victory at the home of the Gunners last season.
The fantastic thing for United right now is that Anthony Martial has started his Red Devils career like a train while Wayne Rooney is back on the goal trail and Juan Mata now definitely looks like he’s made Old Trafford his home for good.
Add into the mix that United are now able to call upon extra quality bodies in midfield such as Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger and who knows; perhaps the Red Devils can go the distance in the Premier League this season.
With plenty more action of course yet to take place this term, we’re feeling a little reflective at the moment while devising a list of United’s five best strikes so far this 2015/16 campaign.
