Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is happy with a wide open title race.
United can go top if they avoid defeat at Burnley this week.
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.
