The table speaks volumes

There’s a difference, of course, to how the Red Devils will set up against Liverpool compared to the sides they believe themselves capable of beating, like Nottingham Forest (2-1 defeat) and West Ham (2-0 defeat).

We simply weren’t decisive enough on the day, though thankfully it hasn’t inconvenienced us to a significant degree as far as the table is concerned.

There’s a chance, of course, that Arsenal may still top the pile ahead of the turn of the year courtesy of an extra game played.

Ultimately, however, many should take the latest standings as a sign of encouragement following some pretty serious surgery over the summer.
