But while the results were clearly due to a team effort, there were also some brilliant moments of individual skill and ingenuity to behold - as shown in our monthly Trickbox video for United Uncovered.
The idea behind it is simple - we look out for the moments in matches that get fans out of their seats and fortunately there is a long list of players at Old Trafford capable of doing that. The end-of-October edition features starring roles from Shinji Kagawa and Wayne Rooney, as well as classy cameos from Antonio Valencia, Adnan Januzaj and Wilfried Zaha. Enjoy it now in the video player above.
