His brilliant and incredible show upon his arrival has seen United go on a 16-game unbeaten run in all competitions. He has scored six goals in 13 appearances for the Red Devils across that period.
Manchester United had a below-par first half of the season. Although not losing to any of the big six of English football, United had problems with teams who sat back to defend.
