Manchester United fans are sensing a change in fortunes after making it 16 games without defeat against Bournemouth on Saturday.
Bruno Fernandes produced another influential performance while Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford joined him on the scoresheet.
United have scored 43 goals in total during their 16-game unbeaten run and they’ve tightened things up in defence as well, keeping 11 clean sheets.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are giving themselves the best possible opportunity of a top four finish and given their run-in, which includes Aston Villa, Southampton, Crystal Palace and West Ham, they’ll quietly be confident of achieving that.
So, are United back?
They’re 11 points adrift of Manchester City and 31 behind Liverpool, but success in the FA Cup would certainly send a message.
But perhaps United are already doing that with the quality of their football right now.
Fernandes has fitted seamlessly into the team and the return of Paul Pogba has added class.
Meanwhile, the front three are on fire right now, combining to score 55 goals in all competitions this season.
It’s left Man United fans very excited and one was left ‘crying tears of joy’ during the win over Brighton.
The fan, named Wes, has gone viral on Twitter after posting a video of himself enjoying United’s latest display.
“I’ve suffered,” he says. “I’ve had to watch f***ing Lingard and Andreas Pereira week in, week out. This is beautiful, we’re back. We’re back!”

GIVEMESPORT’s Scott Wilson says…
Are United back?
Considering that at their height they would regularly compete for the biggest trophies, you can’t say so just yet.
But if this run that they’re on is more than a purple patch and is a mark of how good United really are, then they could challenge for the title next season. Why not?
They’ve beaten Chelsea and Man City during their unbeaten streak.
New additions, such as Jadon Sancho, would further improve the squad and put the Red Devils in a real position to compete.
United aren’t ‘back’ until they’re challenging to win the Premier League and Champions League. But the signs suggest they’re getting there.News Now - Sport News
