Manchester United Enters the Big 3, Becomes a Title Challenger? Manchester United broke into the top three of the Premier League standings after beating Leeds United 6-2. Is MU starting to be Liverpool's opponent in the title race? This absolute victory was obtained by MU when serving Leeds at Old Trafford, Sunday (20/12/2020). Scott McTominay and Bruno Fernandes each contributed 2 goals, while several other MU goals were scored by Victor Lindelof and Daniel James.

The win extended the run the Red Devils have never lost in the Premier League to seven matches or only lost once in the last 10 matches. Finally, MU is now in third place after collecting 26 points from 13 matches, having a distance of one point from Leicester City (2) and five points from Liverpool, who have both played one game more.

At the start of this season, it was doubted that Manchester United could compete with defending champions Liverpool in the hunt for the title. However, the Red Devils are now starting to be recognized. Once again, the club manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, made it clear that MU's current focus is development.

"We are in the first third of the season, not even halfway through the competition, so league status is not something we are looking at," he was quoted as saying on the club's official website.

"We noticed a change in the team, we saw a change in health because we knew we were going to be behind in terms of health, and I think that showed in the first few games, but now, I think we have shown that we are getting fitter and stronger."

The rhythm was conveyed by McTominay regarding Man United's opportunity in the fight for the title. "We didn't watch the standings," said the defensive midfielder from Scotland.

“We don't have time to look around, remember all the agendas and matches we have. We need to finish one game at a time, one at a time, towards the end of the season, you don't know where we are going to finish," McTominay added of the league title race.
