After the Brentford debacle, not many would have envisaged this Manchester United team to go on a run of four wins but here we are after Sunday’s 3-1 win over Arsenal at Old Trafford.
Two successive wins at home for the first time since the start of 2022 with the team managing to score despite not being on top of proceedings for large parts of the second half will definitely please Erik ten Hag who had called for ruthlessness from the forwards.
Rashy back in form
Arsenal was supposed to be the biggest test for this United team and they definitely proved to be much more adept at keeping the ball with United having to keep their shape for large parts of the game.
But they always seemed to carry that threat on the counter and in the end that proved to be the difference between the two sides as United climbed to fifth in the table, just three points behind Arsenal who remain on top.
