Tim Sherwood predicts where Man United, Man City will finish this season

That is what we did last season.

However, rivals Manchester United strolled to a comfortable 4-0 victory against Ronald Koeman's Everton and are levelled on points at the summit of the Premier League table. Tottenham struggled at Wembley again, while Liverpool also trouble at home against a supposedly inferior opponent.

However, this is only beginning.

Manchester United could have a tougher task than City when they travel to ninth-placed Southampton.

Not that we did not know that before the season started.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission is investigating potentially unlawful and discriminatory practices but say they are being hindered by unnamed clubs. Both sides have scored 16 goals and yielded two in this young season.

Manchester City whitewashed Watford 6-0 on Saturday away at the Vicarage Road with Sergio Aguero netting his first hattrick of the season.

Last season, Antonio Conte's Chelsea side were the dark horses that trumped Mourinho and Guardiola to the title. They also number more assists than City. But closer analysis shows that United's goals have been spread between 8 players, with City's between just five. But since the global break they've beaten Liverpool 5-0, Feyenoord 4-0 and Watford 6-0.

"I am happy to be part of Manchester United".

That always helps teams chasing titles and it could prove decisive. None conceded. Not often is such dominance maintained over a period of three matches, but Pep Guardiola's Man City seem to have found their groove and then some in their most recent spell. Not everything is this ideal for the Reds.

Those results have taken them top of the league with the exact record of United and it's down to their ridiculously impressive attacking options. Manchester United and Manchester City will not be the only teams chasing the title, especially this early on. Meanwhile, Chelsea is firing on all cylinders and looks forward to winning the second Derby of London after defeating Tottenham last month.

"It's going to be a long, hard process but I know that there's light at the end of the tunnel.", he said.

Two goals in the opening 17 minutes by Rashford set Man United on its way to an easy win in the first game of its title defence. They are great teams with big qualities. They scored two goals and were able to maintain the same production over the next three matches, winning them all.

Jesus has just carried on from where he left off last season.

Arsenal and Liverpool look like having many defensive troubles.

Arsenal have not begun the season very well, but for once they were up to the task.
