The 2017/18 season is now under way and it appears that MANCHESTER UNITED are in a position to challenge for the Premier League title.
Last season, the Red Devils slumped to sixth place in the table and only a Europa League triumph meant that the campaign had a silver lining, with United now in the mood to finish in top spot.
United’s 4-0 win over West Ham was the eye-catching performance of Game Week 1, with Romelu Lukaku helping himself to two goals on his debut, while Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba added gloss to the scoreline.
Jose Mourinho’s side might not enjoy such an emphatic win at the Liberty Stadium although they look well positioned to land the three points, with Swansea not pulling up any trees in their opening match at St Mary’s.
The goalless draw against Southampton failed to tell the story of sustained pressure from the Saints, with any number of home team players coming close to scoring including some of the defenders.
Paul Clement is about to receive a windfall from the sale of Gylfi Sigurdsson although the departure of the Icelander puts the Swans in a tricky position considering that the midfielder was an integral part in City’s survival efforts last term. For now, Swansea look ill-equipped to deal with a team like United who are purring and ruthless in their quest for a flying start.
Two divisions lower, we’re keen on Fleetwood to continue their 100% record to life in League One and the Cod Army will be keen to avoid the play-offs this season and become a Championship entity by securing automatic promotion.
Uwe Rosler’s side have opened with victories over Rotherham and Northampton, with Conor McAleny having arrived in the summer and he’s already got two goals under his belt. A
FC Wimbledon have just a point for their efforts thus far and have one of the more modest wage budgets in the division, with Neal Ardley’s side struggling for goals right now.
The teams played out a goalless draw at Highbury Stadium last term, although the home side could have more of a cutting edge this time around and we’re backing them for the win.
