United are top after 17 games for the first time since 2013. The similarities and differences between then and now are striking
The world was a very different place eight years ago. Britain was in the European Union, Donald Trump was a businessman and Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge at Old Trafford. Furthermore there was no pandemic (although we obviously did not realise quite how lucky we were to live in a pandemic-free world).
The 2012-13 season is also the last time Manchester United were top of the Premier League after 17 games of the season. The campaign had started as scheduled in August, which meant that the Premier League leaders had played 17 games by 15 December. United were top by six points ahead of Manchester City.
