Manchester United picked up another massive win on Monday night, cruising to a 2-0 victory away from home at West Ham United.
It was United’s seventh win in a row in all competitions as they continue to turn around patchy form in the early part of the season. It seems Jose Mourinho is finally starting to get things right at Old Trafford.
Key to their success recently has been the defensive consistency of Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo. Their steadfast defending has given the Red Devils the platform needed for the likes of Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic to truly shine.
In fact, as this stat from Squawka shows, it’s a defensive partnership that is unbeatable this season so far.
The duo have played 9 Premier League matches together this season and haven’t lost a single one.

It’s a signifier that the time invested in the pair’s partnership is paying dividends for Mourinho. If they can continue to perform like they have then Manchester United will be bursting into the Premier League top 4 in no time.
