I guess it’s safe now to say Man United are back or almost back to what we know them for, fearful, good and winning football. After almost 2 years since Ferguson left the club and Moyes took over and before Van Gaal stepped in, the club is finally looking stable again. It is the first time Man United will top the table since Val gaal took over in 2014.
Here is what van gaal has to say “It’s a nice feeling to be top of the table, it’s the first time in my period so I’m happy”
Wayne Rooney ended his Barclays Premier League goal drought as Manchester United moved to the top of the table with a 3-0 win over Sunderland at Old Trafford on Saturday.
The United captain’s first league strike for 1,000 minutes was sandwiched by efforts from Memphis Depay and Juan Mata as United leapfrogged Manchester City.
Louis van Gaal’s men headed into the fixture knowing victory would lift them to the summit following City’s 4-1 loss at Tottenham Hotspur. That scenario doubtless added to the frustration of the home supporters as United struggled to craft a meaningful opportunity for much of the opening half.
Daley Blind’s superb diagonal ball found Mata’s clever run down the right channel. Mata played a controlled first-time cross for Depay to slot into an empty net from close in. Rooney hit the second and Mata hit the third to give Man United the much needed victory.
United have scored 3 goals each in their last 3 matches, with that form and now being on top of the table, I think another Manchester Club has taken over the driving seat of the champion.
Man City Slumps: Man City slumps again, Tottenham wins 4-1, Harry kane finally scores
