Red Devils in the Tavern have been thoroughly impressed with how certain players have stepped up to the plate so far this season.
United were tipped as one of the title favourites prior to the season and that’s exactly how it has panned out. Having completed a quarter of the season already, the Reds look fairly well positioned as they stay seated in second place, trailing rivals City. Having seen their bitter rivals lift the coveted trophy more recently, it has given them extra incentive to stop them in their tracks.
Things have also been impressive in Europe this season, as they enter the frame in first position having been unbeaten for the duration. For a team that hasn’t felt the taste of European success in quite a while, they’ll be looking to make the most of this position. After doing the double over Portuguese giants Benfica with a dominant 2-0 display at Old Trafford, they can now look to implement this momentum domestically.
Having started the season so strongly, there always has to be a reason for it. That is the step up in performance from a few of the talented players that United have at their disposal. Mourinho has created a well-drilled machine, where everyone knows their roles and what is expected of them. Utilizing the now commonly spread 3 back formation has worked wonders for the side, as creativity has blossomed.
