Even the squad players are amazing.“United have just gone for expensive players.“They went after Sanchez because City were after him, they went after Fred because City were after them, they went after Pogba because everyone else was after him.

Having lost two of their opening three games this season and amid reports of tensions behind the scenes, few are backing them to mount a serious challenge under Jose Mourinho this season.There are even reports Mourinho could be axed if United lose their next game, against Burnley, after the United boss ranted at journalists following Monday night’s home loss to Tottenham.And Gallagher, a lifelong of United’s bitter rivals and the current champions, Manchester City, has no sympathy for the Red Devils.Speaking on the Sports Breakfast, the British music icon said: “He [Mourinho] seems to be sinking at the minute and if he is asking for the press to give him more respect, this is the start of the unravelling I think.“When I was growing up, Liverpool were the best team in the 80s – you couldn’t even envisage they would go 20-odd years without winning the league.“In the 90s, when United were winning three in a row, the Champions League and doubles and trebles, you couldn’t envisage United going ten minutes without winning the league, but it does happen and since Ferguson left United, which was a great day for British football, it is all beginning to unravel. And I am going to sit back and watch it with great pleasure.” Liverpool are considered Man City’s biggest challengers this season Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era?
