Red Devils looking impressive as title race hots up
Throughout the current premier league campaign the two teams from Manchester have been the only sides truly challenging for the title, with the team in sky blue having led for the majority of the season. But that is no longer the case. Manchester United, so renowned for how strongly they have finished in recent seasons, have wrenched the initiative from Manchester City.
Following their victory over Fulham, United now have a 3 point cushion at the top of the table and look unlikely to slip up, particularly considering their fixtures should not prove as challenging as those facing City. The only match that looks a potentially difficult encounter for United is their trip across the city to their rivals, a match that could decide which team wins the league. City, on the other hand, have two difficult games against Arsenal and Newcastle, as well as the match against Sir Alex Ferguson’s men.
United have peaked at the business end of the season, with Wayne Rooney inspiring them with a superb run of goal-scoring performances. City, however, have dropped points against Stoke and Swansea and appear to lack the flare they had, with important players such as David Silva not putting in the sort of performances he did earlier in the season.
Man City’s players are beginning to look tired and, in comparison, United’s strength in depth is beginning to show. United also have experience behind them, with the legendary football club hunting their 20th Premier League title. In summary, United appear strong and are beginning to look in control of the title race. However, with City only three points behind, anything could happen. Tevez’s return to the club could prove crucial, too, if he steps up in the Manchester derby and scores the winning goal.
