The final point here isn't too much of an issue for United at the moment, but it could become one if not managed properly throughout the remainder of the season.
The Red Devils cannot over-rely on Robin van Persie this season—something that could work itself out in several different ways in 2013.
Not just in terms of scoring goals, but they must not become focused on directing all the attack through him. They must make sure that they are looking for the best option available in attack, and not just the high-flying Dutch international's left foot.
They must also make sure that they are adequately resting the 29-year-old and not burning him out by playing him in matches where he is not needed. That also means Ferguson should trust other strikers such as Javier Hernandez and Wayne Rooney to get the job done.
Van Persie isn't being over-relied on at United at the moment, and it isn't an issue with the club, but it could be throughout the remainder of the year. The Red Devils need to make sure that they are keeping him fresh and hungry, and that they are working well as a team in 2013.
If they can continue to do that, then they'll go a long way to winning that elusive 20th league title.
How do you think Manchester United can improve in 2013?
