When Manchester United misses, there is seldom any cause for panic.
A clean sheet is usually the signal to sit back and enjoy the show as it unfolds.
United underscored the team’s status as comeback kings with an impressive turnaround against Aston Villa after trailing 1-0 at halftime and winning 3-1 thanks to goals from Bruno Fernandes, Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani.
United have now won 10 games this season after falling behind. That’s a Premier League record.
Bruno Fernandes mentioned United’s mental strength and ability to overcome deficits after the Villa Park win.
Teammates Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Paul Pogba also commented on social media after the win.
They really wanted to point out that United are determined to keep winning. In this way the team maintains the momentum and increases the pressure on the championship leader City.
Fernandes, Pogba and Wan-Bissaka are likely to rest against Leicester City on Tuesday night.
The abbreviated fixture plan means that a lot of rotation is required.
The good news is that United have already secured a top four spot thanks to West Ham’s loss to Everton in fifth place.
Upcoming opponents Leicester have fallen to fourth place, one point below improving Chelsea.
