The Red Devils finished third in the 2019/20 season but have not been impressive in the first few matches of the new season.
Manchester United started their campaign with a home defeat to Crystal Palace after a poor showing. They picked up a fortunate victory away at Brighton and won their Carabao Cup tie against them, as well as Luton Town.
However, they were completely whitewashed by Tottenham who won 6-1 before the international break. This already leaves them 9 points behind first place Everton at a very early time of the season.

He scored United’s sole goal of the match from the spot but was substituted at half time. Reports after the game claimed that Fernandes lost it in the dressing room, telling his teammates they were not making the shirt proud with their performance and new reports have suggested he has lost faith in his manager, Solskjaer.
Further reports claim he tore at Harry Maguire, saying he was not deserving of the captain armband. He was subsequently withdrawn before the teams returned at half time, but Old Trafford chiefs say it was purely tactical.
Solskjaer has been under fire for much of his Manchester United career and lose set to lose his job sooner rather than later. United completed four deals in the transfer window.
Cristiano Ronaldo Positive COVID-19 Test
Another Portuguese is in the news, this time, 5-time Ballon d’Or winner, Cristiano Ronaldo. The Juventus forward has tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss his country’s clash with Sweden.
Ronaldo would have to self-isolate for at least 10 days due to Italy’s new isolation guidelines. This means he will miss his club’s matches with Crotone in the league and Champions League opener with Dynamo Kiev on October 20.
It is still unsure if he will miss the highly-anticipated match between Juventus and Barcelona as he must be completely COVID-free for at least one week before the clash which is scheduled for 28th October.
