Since Sir Alex Ferguson retired, Manchester United have seemingly appointed the wrong manager at the wrong time at every opportunity, either that being because the squad didn't suit their style or because they weren't good enough for the top level, but with the appointment of Erik ten Hag, it finally seems that Man Utd have the right manager at the right time with the right squad.
After last season’s chaos, it was expected that this season was going to be a building season for ten Hag after they only won seven of their last 23 games under Ralf Rangnick and with losses to Brighton and Brentford to start the season, it looked to be more of the same, but since that defeat at the Brentford Community Stadium, ten Hag’s side have been much improved.
Since the heavy 4-0 defeat to Brentford, United have played 23 games in all competitions and have won 18 of them, drawing twice and losing three times with their league form, winning seven of their last ten games, finding them within touching distance of rivals Manchester City and seven points clear of main rivals Liverpool, of whom they finished 34 points behind last season.
It was the inconsistency of United that was a massive problem last season, with their longest winning streak in all competitions only being two games and in the Premier League they only managed three wins in a row once all season
However, this season under ten Hag, they are already much more consistent, already having winning streaks of three games or more four times and are currently on a six-game winning streak in all competitions and a four-game Premier League winning streak for the second time this season.
