Following the departure of Jose Mourinho from Old Trafford, Manchester United have been akin to a wild animal released from captivity with their form hugely impressive since the sacking of the Portuguese manager. The Red Devils are flying high on a five-match unbeaten Premier League run and a feel-good factor pervades at the Theatre of Dreams right now, something which the fans will undoubtedly hope will continue.
Clearly not too much should be read into recent results given that United are still in a ‘honeymoon period’ with their interim boss, however there remains no evidence to suggest that results will take a downturn anytime soon and leading bookmaker Betway are offering Manchester United odds on when the Red Devils will taste their next defeat, their meeting with Brighton next weekend priced at 9/1 and the FA Cup meeting with Arsenal 6/4.
Betway go 12/1 that Manchester United remain unbeaten in the Premier League for the remainder of the season, their excellent run of five wins on the bounce making this a far more likely scenario than when Mourinho was at the helm.
Indeed there can be no denying that the Red Devils are far more impressive now that Mourinho is out of the way, their six wins from six outings giving interim boss Solskjaer a perfect start to life in the Old Trafford hot-seat. The misery which surrounded Mourinho’s reign has now evaporated and there is every possibility that this excellent run will continue over the coming weeks and possibly months.
