Fixtures: Home to Arsenal, Saturday
The all-or-nothing theme continues for United, who have won seven matches and lost two this season. Those 24 goals scored look mighty impressive, but the 13 allowed create cause for concern.
Adam: I honestly don't think they'll be in the top spot for long, but I have to put them No. 1 after beating Chelsea. "Bad red card," blah, blah, blah. "Offside Chicharito," blah, blah, blah. I know, I know. But the Red Devils dominated the first third of this match, and they hung in despite playing the EPL's top side at Stamford Bridge.
Will: Finally some drive and purpose against Chelsea.
Sean: They get the top nod this week to avoid the THEY-JUST-FREAKIN'-BEAT-CHELSEA-SO-SHOULD-BE-HIGHER counter argument. United's prolific attack is bailing out a glaringly porous defense and midfield.
