The Red Devils, who have had a disastrous start to the 2019/20 season, seem to be making their way back into the league with back to back wins against two of the top six teams in the Premier League. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men got the better of Tottenham Hotspur in their last match before the Manchester derby, beating them by a similar margin of 2-1 as they did against their bitter rivals from the other side of the city of Manchester last Sunday.

This result takes the former Premier League champions up to the fifth place in the Premier League table with 24 points from 16 games. However, with important matches against Everton, Watford, Newcastle United and Burnley coming up in the Premier League, the Red Devils won’t get much time to sit back and relax as they will look to climb up the ladder as much as possible.
