EPL Review: Manchester City go top after big win

EPL Review: Manchester City go top after big win

The pair have looked fairly unstoppable thus far, and dabblebet is offering a whopping 33/1 (34.0) that both remain unbeaten until the Manchester derby, now scheduled for December 9th.

Both Manchester clubs have had identical starts to the Premier League season, sitting top of the table after five games following thumping wins at the weekend.

Despite their stirring displays though, I couldn't help but feel that there are still chinks in the armour.

Their first real test, arguably of the season, comes on October 14th when they travel to Anfield to face bitter rivals Liverpool, before hosting Spurs two weeks later and then going to the capital to play Chelsea.

Gary Neville believes Manchester United have improved both offensively and defensively under Jose Mourinho this season.

"Man City have spent the biggest amount in the Premier League", Herrera stated.

United States said to weigh shooting down all North Korean missiles
The American military is said to be considering shooting down North Korean missile - even if they do not pose a direct threat . Lavrov said Russia's position on the issue is "completely identical" to China's.

Elsewhere, Jamaal Lascelles was Newcastle's hero for the second time in a week as Rafael Benitez celebrated his return to the dugout with a third successive Premier League victory.

It wasn't until October, when a 2-0 loss to Spurs at White Hart Lane triggered a run of just one win in five, that the life became somewhat tricky for Guardiola and City.

"So it is early, but I do find it very hard to look beyond them and United".

McBride reckons Manchester United will be concentrating on winning their first title since 2013 along with Tottenham, who were last crowned champions in 1961.

"City are just so far a better team with him in it. There's hope there for City". Also Manchester United will be up against Everton and that fixture will see Romelu Lukaku and Wayne Rooney face their former clubs. "We won three last season so they have more obligation than us".

As the games tick by and suspensions start to kick in with the accrual of yellow cards, along with the auto bans that come with red cards, discipline will be ever more crucial to maintaining the momentum gained and help managers pick a consistent team. With Paul Pogba out, he's started the season really well.
