Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is delighted to see an open title race this season.
Premier League often promises a close-knit fight to the top but this season is turning out to be a shocker for many.
Almost every club out there is dropping points unexpectedly and United are level on points with Liverpool. They have a game in hand and could top of the table with a win over Burnley on Thursday.
Solskjaer said, “I think all the teams want to take a grip on the Premier League, of course, but it’s that kind of season, that kind of year and situation where there will be more ups and downs and less consistency in results and performances.
“For me, it’s exciting. As a supporter or a fan, it’s more interesting when there are more teams in and around each other, compared to last season when one just ran away. We are better off this season than compared to the same time as last year.
“We’ve won more games, we’ve scored more goals, we’ve played better football. So, of course, that’s a positive. But no one remembers January league tables. For us, it’s just about developing this team and improving.
