Well, the weekend is here, meaning Premier League is back after the international break. This might come as surprise, but Manchester United have already had it rough so far in this campaign currently sitting in the 10th position.
Watford are the early surprise package of the season with four straight wins to stand alongside pace setters Liverpool and Chelsea.
The Hornets boss has earned a reputation for big scalps, frustrating Barcelona and Real Madrid during his time in Spain with Malaga and sweeping away Chelsea 4-1 in his first match at the vicarage last season, thus going with a victory over Spurs just two weeks ago.
Manchester United got back to winning ways with a comfortable win over Burnely, just before the international break to calm the storm surrounding Jose Mourinho’s future at the club.
But as they battle Watford on Saturday, should Mourinho’s men suffer a third league defeat in just 5 games, the chances of catching the likes of City and Liverpool would be slim.
– Pellegrini needs points –
At the other end of the table, West Ham are the only club yet record a single point this season despite a huge transfer spend of nearly £100 over the summer.
Former Manchester city manager, Manuel Pellegrini has not just been back in the transfer market, but also with the patience of the hammers hierarchy.
However, the Chilean is likely to be the first premier league manager to be sacked this season and his odds will only shorten if he fails to inspire a response against Everton on Sunday.
