Villaflor: United'' s turn-around
As the very first half of the football season is set to cover up, the big clubs have actually taken back their rightful location in the English Premier League.
Well, with the exception of underperformers named Chelsea and Arsenal, obviously.
But the biggest turnaround this season goes no less to Manchester United, which just 2 months ago seemed headed towards the transfer zone.
Languishing at the 15th area at some point in early November, the Red Devils appeared doomed early on.
However in a remarkable turn of events, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, one hard game at a time, reversed its fortunes.
And think what? As we speak, Manchester United is on top of the English Premier League.
If United’s turnaround isn’t extraordinary, I do not understand what it is.
So how does the Premiership table look right now?
After 17 matches, United has acquired 36 points to edge out Liverpool (33 points) and Manchester City (32 points).
At 4th location, Leicester City is staying amongst dark horses alongside Everton at 5th, with both clubs having earned 32 points each, but Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham (30 points) are snapping at their heels.
Ten points behind the league leaders, Chelsea is languishing at ninth place, behind Southampton (29 points) and Aston Villa, and simply ahead of West Ham.
But if the Blues have any alleviation, Arsenal (23 points) remains in an even worse position at 11th.
Still, there’s good news for the Gunners: The worst appears over for the club as it managed to claw its method to mid-table.
A few weeks back, Arsenal, like United, were just a couple of notches far from the feared transfer zone.
But can Arsenal do a United and climb up back to the leading 4, or would it just wait on this unpleasant season to lastly come to an end?
