In the alternative table the top four looks fairly similar with Norwich, Leeds, Middlesbrough and the Blades all occupying the top spots.

Below that there's plenty of movement, with league top scorers West Brom sliding down the standings from fifth to 14th having only won two away matches so far this campaign. 

In the table compiled by Talksport, Sheffield Wednesday would rise from 17th to 11th and Brentford would fall from 15th to 21st.

Can United keep winning on the road and climb back up the Championship table?
