Manchester United are the Premier League’s in-form team.
They sit top of the form table from February onwards and haven’t lost since January’s 2-0 home defeat to Burnley.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was a manager under significant pressure back then, but so much has changed over the following six months.
United are unbeaten in 17 games and have won 13 of those matches, scoring 46 goals in the process.
The turnaround began on January 26 away at Tranmere Rovers in the FA Cup. A 6-0 victory was the perfect response after that shocking defeat against Burnley four days earlier.
Three days after hammering Tranmere, they beat Manchester City away at the Etihad Stadium in the League Cup. Although their 1-0 victory wasn’t enough to send them through to March’s final, it was a morale-boosting result nevertheless.
Then, on January 30, United’s biggest moment of the season happened: they signed Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon for £47 million.
The Portuguese midfielder has transformed the Red Devils almost single-handedly. Without him it’s fair to assume United would not be unbeaten in 17 games.
Fernandes features heavily on a brilliant two-minute video of United’s past 17 games, which is currently going viral on Twitter.
Set to the song Radioactive by Imagine Dragons, we’re treated to two minutes and 19 seconds of United scoring a host of stunning goals.
Yes, there are quite a few penalties in there – there’s a reason why rival fans are currently labelling them ‘Penalty FC’ – but even the spot-kicks are decent.
United have scored some stunning goals over the course of those 17 matches via the likes of Fernandes, Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial.
And you can watch them all here…
Let’s check out some of the reaction from Man Utd fans in the comments…
It’s amazing how dramatically the mood of the club’s supporters has changed since the beginning of the year.
And if United can end the season by winning the FA Cup and the Europa League, along with finishing inside the top four, fans will feel believe that a Premier League title challenge next season is a real possibility.
