Former Manchester United Lou Macari is struggling to understand how his former team have won five on the bounce and admits they’ve been lucky to win a couple of their games during the run.
Macari played for United between 1973 and 1984 and has been a regular pundit on MUTV in recent years, regularly giving his opinion on the club but even the current run seems to have him stumped.
Louis van Gaal‘s side have beaten Crystal Palace, Arsenal, Hull, Stoke and Southampton in that time but have ridden their luck on more than one occasion along the way.
With players gradually coming back from injury and the side seemingly as confident as they’ve been in the last few months there’s every chance the run could continue but the former midfielder the team still haven’t played that well.
“They haven’t played very well and yet they’ve still managed to record five in a row. I can’t get to the bottom of it.
“It’s crazy at the moment. We’ve really not seen a glimpse of a real top team that is in third place at this moment in time. I can’t believe it but somehow or another they’ve managed to do it.”
United can make it six wins in a row and there’s nobody supporters would like to see it happen against than Liverpool at Old Trafford.
