Ander Herrera Claims Manchester United Are Not Far Off Real Madrid

Reflecting on what would be a wonderful achievement, Pep is hopeful there are many more goals to come from the Argentine. Aguero and Jesus have started to build a partnership up front that has led to them being a nightmare for opposing defenses. They scored 15 goals in a week (against Liverpool, Feyenoord and Watford), though their defensive wobbliness has not been entirely cut off.

"I think if you look at Costa, he was brilliant at it in terms of really taking it up to the edge, then stepping back, but affecting opposition teams". They have a world-class goalkeeper, good centre-back pairing, awesome defensive midfielder and a goal-scoring striker. City have conceded in two out of the 5 games, with United keeping a clean sheet in 4 of their 5. Not everything is this ideal for the Reds. However, Manchester United seem like the best balanced United team since Sir Alex Ferguson retired.

Spurs already cannot match their incredible home record at White Hart Lane last season and the seven points they've dropped at home in 2017/18 are already more than they dropped in their final season at White Hart Lane.

There is little love lost between old rivals Mourinho and Guardiola and their close proximity in Manchester should make the title race an explosive affair.

Asked how he felt about Chelsea sanctioning Nemanja Matic's £40 million move to United, Blues boss Antonio Conte gave a terse reply - "You should ask the club" - that left no doubt about his frustration at losing the Serbia midfielder.

"That means, just five matches into this Premier League season, it's hard to see how Liverpool will get into the title mix so long as they have this defensive weakness". Tottenham will probably wake up soon, but their strongest attribute last season is gone - White Hart Lane. However, should this be the case come the final game of the season, the trophy wouldn't be presented to City....there would be a victor take all playoff.

Of course, scoring goals has not been a problem for City of late and a continuation of this would be most welcome when Roy Hodgson brings his side to the Etihad on Saturday.
