Manchester United Are Where We Used To Be - Liverpool Legend Explains

Ranieri next for The Smiling Assassin

Worse still, their top scorer Jermain Defoe has not found the net against Arsenal in nearly 12 years.

The match turned on the introduction of Giroud, who scored with his first two touches as Arsenal netted three times in seven second-half minutes.

The France worldwide struck twice inside five minutes after being introduced as a second-half substitute to contribute to a 4-1 victory at Sunderland in Saturday's early kick-off. Arsene Wenger side is 2 on points table whereas Sunderland stands at the bottom of the table.

Gary Neville considers the battle for Premier League supremacy to be a six-horse race, but remains unconvinced that either Manchester City or Arsenal will be first over the line.

"Whether Liverpool win the league with a leaky defence, I'm not so sure, but they are looking very strong".

"I'd like to convince Sergio how important he is", he said, according to a BBC Sport report, after Aguero struck twice in the 4-0 win at West Bromwich Albion a few days earlier.

Fantasy Premier League managers willing to take a risk can even gamble with big United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic who was effective during his side's League Cup win over Manchester City.

"It's a Premier League weekly, because a different team is becoming the flavour".

Tottenham are the only unbeaten team left in the Premier League this season.

How many world class players do Tottenham Hotspur have?

Ian Wright is aware that expecting Sergio Aguero to end up at Arsenal may be wishful thinking on his part, but the former England global believes he would be the final piece in a Premier League title-winning jigsaw at the Emirates.

Aguero should how lethal he is in front of goal as he scored City's first two goals in the first half.

Emre Can and Dejan Lovren both gave the Reds the lead only to have James McArthur answer each times. They also failed to win in in all four games.

Aldridge is pleased that this year it is not Liverpool who are already off the pace.

But Joel Matip's 44th-minute header restored the visitors' advantage and Roberto Firmino chipped in from Jordan Henderson's pass to seal victory with 19 minutes remaining. Liverpool have a kind run of fixtures, not facing any of the top six until after Christmas (that's six matches), and if they can put a run together, they are likely to top the table over the festive period. It was a harsh-looking decision considering the Spaniard seemed to slip. Though there is plenty of quality in personnel on the field and also in the managerial positions and this season can easily go down to the wire on the final day of the season.

United had 37 shot attempts, 11 on target but couldn't beat Tom Heaton who pulled off several spectacular stops.

Premier League games played by Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, he is yet to keep a clean sheet in the competition.
