Manchester United are top of the Premier League.

After a tough seven years, you can bet United fans are going to enjoy this moment for as long as it lasts.

And we could come crashing back down to earth at the weekend if we lose to Liverpool. But for now, this is a brief moment to savour.

United under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are used to bouncing back from adversity. Tough results just seem to make this team more resilient.

The team are getting into a habit of grinding out results amid a strong run of league form which has lasted for almost a full 12 months now.

21 games to go

There is a long way to go this season. 21 Premier League games remain. But this does not stop United fans from hoping that title number 21 could finally be on the way.

The stakes are higher than ever. Liverpool are one title behind us after winning their 19th last season.

 

This season they hoped to equal our 20th title won in 2013 under Sir Alex Ferguson, which we have been stuck on ever since.

So it would be particularly sweet to extend the lead and lift number 21 in May.

Other teams like City will have their say too. Tottenham could also get into the mix. But right now United are in pole position.

Supporters are determined to savour the moment and enjoy a few days being able to boast about being top of the Premier League.

At the weekend there is an opportunity to move six points clear of Liverpool.

If you think supporters are getting carried away right now, wait until that happens…
