Things that have happened since Manchester United have been stuck in sixth place

They've been stuck in sixth since November 2016, and a lot has changed since then.


It has been a frustrating few months for Manchester United. Despite the fact they are on their longest unbeaten run since Sir Alex Fergusons retirement – 16 games unbeaten, the biggest streak in any of Europe’s top five leagues – they are only just out of sixth place.

Since November 6th, where they beat Swansea 3-1, they have been sat in sixth place of the Premier League. A lot has changed since then, and we’ve decided to write Jose a list to get him up to speed.
