Disclaimer: I'm not necessarily saying that our current team is as good as the team that won the league in 2013. ____________________________________________________________________ After 17 games we're almost done with half the season. Things have clearly gotten better, but how does Mourinho's team actually compare to Fergie's teams post-Ronaldo(2009-2013)? This is the current situation: Points: 38 Goal difference: +26 And this is Fergie's average stats at the same stage(post-Ronaldo): Points: 39.5 Goal difference: +23 ____________________________________________________________________ In terms of points and goal difference, we're just about were we could expect to be back in the Fergie days. Other similarities: - Defensively stable, while still occasionally conceding silly goals. - Generally full control over lower and mid-table teams. Each game is all about scoring that first goal, and then it's done. - City is both our achilles heel and main rival. Poor results. - Careful approach when playing against Pool on Anfield. - Stamford Bridge is still a head-scratcher for us. - Good results are semi-expected against Tottenham and Arsenal.
