Manchester United endured a slow start to the Premier League campaign but Jose Mourinho’s side are now flying, going 15 matches unbeaten and clawing their way back into the race for Champions League football next season.
Yesterday’s victory over Leicester City sees United move just two points behind the top-four and 2017 in particular has been spectacular so far for the Red Devils, as they’ve proven to be tricky customers to deal with.

Conceding just two goals in their five Premier League matches this year, with one coming against Stoke City and one coming against Liverpool, the Red Devils boast the league’s most resilient defence since the turn of the year- keeping three clean sheets.
That impressive record has helped Manchester United shine but they could certainly do with their attack hitting a purple patch of form, as they’ve drawn three of their five matches this month- which has ensured they remain sixth, for now.
