Manchester United name strong squad to face Burton — Trending

Pulisic the Golden Boy?

Arsenal produced a vastly improved away performance to have the better of a 0-0 draw with Premier League champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge while Manchester United thrashed Everton 4-0 in with Romelu Lukaku providing the third goal against his former club.

"To me they are looking a lot better than before in terms of breaking sides down and killing off games".

Both teams have played 5 games, but United have played three at home, whilst City have only played two games at the Etihad Stadium. Heralded as the most exciting attacking team in the Premier League, Klopp's men jabbed and harried for a little over 25 minutes before Aguero, playing on Klavan's shoulder triggered his dart perfectly to slot away a De Bruyne's peach of a pass. Things went from bad to worse for the Merseysiders in the 37th minute, after Sadio Mane lost a few studs on Ederson's mug and was summarily sent to the dressing room for an early shower. But I think because of the money they have spent they are the favorites. However, by drilling down into the stats, who is entitled to feel they have made the better start? And if that makes City more attractive it may also make them more easily disrupted, as we saw last season when they won their first 10 matches in scintillating style only to falter in October. "They are under pressure".

Pep Guardiola's men are now the subject of wide-spread praise following their 6-0 thumping of Watford to take them to the top of the league - albeit on alphabetical grounds. "With a bit more freedom we would have won the game".

'We should have been winning by at least two goals but you know when you play against Everton you are going to suffer.

Does he have a point?

Having said that, there's no doubt that Mourinho has created a team that is pragmatic, functional and fully equipped to win the Premier League.

This season no silverware and a finish below second place in the table would constitute a massive disappointment for Guardiola's side and pressure would perhaps start to build on the Spanish coach.

United moved level with rivals Manchester City at the summit - the two teams' records being identical after five games - by producing a late flurry to push the Toffees aside at Old Trafford on Sunday.
