Man City title tilt and Manchester United uncertainty – Predict Premier League results until Boxing Day

0

October is over and we are now in November, which only means one thing – the preparation for Christmas and the New Year.

For the last time in the calendar year, players from the red and blue halves of Manchester embarked on their respective international adventures as they seek to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Manchester United have already taken a victim to the international break in two days as Paul Pogba is set to be out until 2022 after injuring his thigh during training in France.

Pep Guardiola’s side won the first battle between the two fierce rivals as their own goal from Eric Bailly and Bernardo Silva inflicted more misery at home on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the pressure weighs on the boss of United.

The Premier League are past a handful of games, but there is still a large majority of the season to play despite the complexion of this campaign already taking shape as Chelsea and City set the tone after West Ham shaken the hopes of Liverpool before the international break.

Four managers have already found themselves on the managerial cutting board as the layoff season is well underway. Xisco Munoz, Steve Bruce and Nuno Espirito Santo were all relieved of their duties after Dean Smith became the latest victim at Villa Park.

Solskjaer is among the next favorites to be eliminated, but heading into the November internationals he still has his job in the Old Trafford dugout.

City sit three points behind Thomas Tuchel’s side at the top of the table, but tied on points with the Hammers for second after passing Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Joao Cancelo, Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus have been among the Blues’ outstanding performers this season, Phil Foden continuing his meteoric development and Jack Grealish continues to find his feet after his summer move.

However, at Old Trafford, pressure continues to mount for Solskjaer after losses to rivals Liverpool and Man City in recent weeks.

Last season, Guardiola’s side backed Klopp over Christmas before making up the deficit to be crowned champions for the third time in the Spaniard’s fate. Can they do it again this time around or can United turn the tide under Solskjaer?
