1. You just cannot win them all. United are still unbeaten since the restart of the Premier League, winning four and drawing the other two.

United played their first home game in over three months,  when Scott McTominay’s strike from distance had then sealed a deserved 2-0 victory for the Reds in the Manchester derby.
