Manchester United are level on points with Liverpool at the top of the Premier League.
Every game has an extra nervy edge because of the situation we find ourselves in.
Fans are wondering whether it’s too easy to consider United title considers, which it is, but it’s still a better conversation that what we were having at this stage last season — and we still went on to finish third in the league.
Goals from Anthony Martial and Bruno Fernandes swung the game deservedly in United’s favour.
But some terrific defender by Eric Bailly at the end secured the three points.
@ManUtd summed up every United fan’s mood at the full-time whistle with a picture of the Ivorian defender celebrating with ‘relief’ written across his face.
