Manchester United are at the top of the table right now, although Arsenal are just 3 points behind with a game in hand, so, how bad can Manchester United’s season get?
Manchester United don’t exactly have the fittest defenders in Rio Ferdinand and Johnny Evans, and to add to that, there’s always feisty Vidic who always gets into the thick of the action, getting himself a few red cards. Their defensive problems were shown generally in their 3-1 defeat to Liverpool FC, and even emphasized by having conceded a first goal which someone simply should have stopped in the top tier of English football.
2. Dips In Form
Well, Manchester United seemed invincible just 5 or 6 matches ago, but then come Wolves and fast forward 4 more matches, they have collected an additional 2 defeats. For the record, Manchester United have lost 3 of their last 5 matches. That will certainly be interesting to watch, to see how they can come out of their bad form, who knows? Maybe this will last the whole season.
3. They still have to play Arsenal AND Chelsea
Bar the Liverpool match they played at Old Trafford, there hasn’t been a wonderful display by Manchester United in Big 4 encounters, and in the remaining matches, they still have to face both Arsenal AND Chelsea, and that will be defining in the title race.
