RvP and Rooney meshed much quicker and better than anyone expected. Bringing Rooney back to more of a CAM position worked best for both.
In the central midfield, Cleverley made the transition from good young rotation piece to a first-choice starter.
Defensively, the older guys got healthy and basically have done just enough to keep us outscoring the other guys. Smalling and Jones are developing, but make some big mistakes from time to time. De Gea is prone to give up an easy one.
We're dominating because everyone else is down, really. Otherwise it'd be a tight race.
