Man United continues to do things the hard way, so it seems they haven’t been able to win more matches than they have won, while there has 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 win over Leeds puts them just five points behind Liverpool with one game in hand, so they should surely be considered as title contenders right now.
There is still a long way to go and Liverpool have to be considered favorites for quality and experience, but United have some players who are getting into shape and this could get interesting.
The landslide victory against Leeds United tonight was enough to make some fans dream:
This way we could win the league. Why not

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

This is what our fans want to see, the true united path. Attack and attack and attack. Keep playing like this and we will 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 to Liverpool than any other team. # 21ComingHome

United have some tough games against players like Wolves and Leicester, but if they can maintain this form, suddenly their trip to Anfield in January could be especially tasty.
