Four wins on the spin suggests Manchester United have overcome the difficulties they experienced in the early stages of the current campaign and murmurings of winning the title are beginning to emanate from Old Trafford again.
So ominous is their return to form that even those not on the Red Devils payroll have begun to believe in their cause.
Robin van Persie started the bandwagon after the win at Arsenal and countryman Rene Meulensteen has since followed.
It was a party midfield bruiser Marouane Fellaini couldn’t turn down an invite to too, with all three of their statements outlined below:
The 25/1 about Man Utd claiming a 14th Premier League crown this term no doubt appeals to this trio.
But for those not convinced, the Louis van Gaal factor should prove a sufficient arm-twister.
The Dutchman has previous in overturning sizeable margins to claim the top domestic honour.
His title-winning FC Bayern Munchen and Barcelona sides had earned fewer points after 14 games.
Bayern hoisted the 2009/10 Bundesliga crown after two seasons in Borussia Dortmund’s shadow, but it didn’t look good for them approaching the half-way stage of the season.
They were six points behind pacesetting Bayer Leverkusen in fourth spot, but recovered to claim the title with a five-point cushion.
His exploits with the Catalan kings in 1998/99 – a season in which he secured his second title with Los Blaugrana – were even more impressive.
Barca were languishing in tenth after 14 matches, with just 19 points clocked that left them nine adrift of table-topping Mallorca.
Such a margin didn’t stop Van Gaal getting his paws on the La Liga crown.
The current deficit between his United side and Chelsea at the Premier League summit is just eight points, so based on the former Netherlands boss’ track record, they’re far from out of the running in the title race.
