Man United keep doing things the hard way so it feels like they’ve failed to win more games than they have, while there’s also been a narrative that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is holding them back.
Regardless of your thoughts on United and the manager, the reality is that their victory over Leeds puts them only five points behind Liverpool with a game in hand, so surely they have to be considered as title contenders at this point?
There is still a long way to go and Liverpool have to be considered as the favourites due to their quality and experience, but United have some players who are coming into form and this could get interesting.
The crushing victory against Leeds United this evening was enough to get some fans dreaming:
On this form we could win the league. Why not

What I learnt from today’s performance..??
– Bruno is still the goat
– Martial needs to learn how to shoot and should be dropped for Cavani
– james should go on loan!
We need to buy a great CB this transfer window coming up to challenge for the title! #MUFC #GGMU

This is what us fans what to see, the real united way. Attack and attack and attack. Keep playing like this and we’ll surely have 2 or 3 silverwares this season??

McTominay MOTM. Not Bruno in this game. He deserves it.
But I think we are a real threat for Liverpool than any other team. #21ComingHome

United have got some tough games coming up against the likes of Wolves and Leicester, but if they can keep this form up then suddenly their trip to Anfield in January could be especially tasty.
