After losing their first two games in the Premier League season to Brighton and Brentford, respectively, United was at the bottom of the standings after match week two. However, Erik Ten Hag has miraculously turned things around for his team, and they now sit just three points behind the leaders after four straight victories.
United fans are now anticipating for better things to come, as they have seen great changes, and character from the players in the last four wins, which includes impressive victories against top rivals Liverpool and Arsenal.
In this article, we will be writing on the three things Manchester United fans should be happy about so far this season.
1. Defensive Improvement
The Manchester United defense has seen a noticeable development that merits recognition; following their humiliating loss to Brentford in game week two, they appear to have stiffened their defense.
United has played four games since game week two and only given up two goals, which came from top attacking teams Liverpool and Arsenal, respectively. They have also managed to keep two clean sheets.
Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez’s newly formed defensive partnership appears to be working wonders for United, and that may be the reason for their success this season.
2. Top Players Regaining Form
After a dismal season in the previous campaign, in which the bulk of United’s key players underperformed expectations, Manchester United is starting to find its form again.
Marcus Rashford, Dalot, Bruno Fernandes, Raphael Varane, and Jadon Sancho are among the players who are beginning to regain their best form and may be crucial to their success this season.
3. Style Of Play
It appears that Manchester United is unsure of their style of play from the previous season because there was no obvious manner to build up the team to play against opponents, which made it challenging for him to win games.
This season, it seems like United is approaching games with a defined pattern and strategy, as was apparent against Arsenal on Sunday, when they played very well on the counterattack
They could also decide to play smaller teams more openly.
Do you anticipate Manchester United to contend for the Premier League title this year?
