It’s fair to say Manchester United have struggled to maintain their best form since the retirement of legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson, with successors David Moyes and Louis Van Gaal both failing to fill the void.
Jose Mourinho seemed to be heading down the same path in the early stages of his tenure at Old Trafford but the Portuguese boss has seen his side turn a corner in the past few months, clawing their way back into the race for Champions League football with a fantastic run.
15 games unbeaten in the Premier League is a record that, remarkably, Manchester United have enjoyed 11 times since the league’s inception in 1992- but this is the first time they’ve secured that run of form since Ferguson waved goodbye.
1 – This is Man Utd's 11th run of 15+ Premier League games unbeaten, but their first since Sir Alex Ferguson retired. Restoration.

With upcoming matches against Watford, Bournemouth, Southampton, Middlesbrough and West Brom between now and the end of April, United will fancy their chances of continuing that record.
