With this victory, the Red Devils hold the second position in the league. However, their job is not finished by any means. Although they are in the race for the title, they are still ten points behind their noisy neighbors, Manchester City.
There are still 13 games left to be played this season, but unless City collapses in the final stretche of the season. United might have to wait for another year to win a major trophy. However, the club is at least heading into the right direction this year.
