After enduring a torrid start to the 2013-14 season, Manchester United are finally finding their feet under manager David Moyes.
Manchester United started off the season brightly, winning the Community Shield against Wigan and thumping Swansea 4-1 in their league opener.
But soon they looked short of the spark that made The Theatre of Dreams. A run of draws and couple of losses at home saw the champions slip to 11th in the league.
United, who are renowned for their fight backs, saw their campaign going down in disappointment, but a resurgence of form from the top players has seen United climb up to 8th in the table.
Their last draw against Real Sociedad leaves them undefeated in their last eight games as they prepare to face Arsenal on Sunday. Although it might worry Moyes to see United’s profligacy in front of goal, Hernandez and Van Persie both guilty of poor finishing in the game with Sociedad and such a performance against the Gunners might prove costly for the Red Devils.
Though David Moyes must be happy to see both Antonio Valencia and Shinji Kagawa come good against Real Sociedad, There has been speculation surrounding Kagawa’s future after he failed to live up to the standards of United since his arrival and could be on his way back to Dortmund, as reported by The Independent.
United will host league-leaders Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday, and a win for Arsene Wenger's men will see them open an eight-point gap on United who would be reeling at the middle of the table. Though a United win will see the champions climb up the table and close the gap on their rivals.
