Manchester United have had an excellent start to the season and currently top the Premier League table.
They are three points ahead of Chelsea but are yet to play any top side and won’t have a big game to play until the middle of October when they face Liverpool and also Tottenham. From then on, United would have so many tough games including a visit to Chelsea in November, and Arsenal in December and a home game against Manchester City in December.
Glenn Hoddle believes it’s then Manchester United would truly be tested.
“The run of fixtures coming up suggests they will still be top at the end of next month, with Liverpool away in mid-October the most challenging of them,” Hoddle wrote in his column for the Daily Mail.
“But between October 28 and December 9 there will be an autumn of reckoning. In a six-week period they face Tottenham at home, Chelsea away, Arsenal away and Manchester City at home.”
The former Chelsea manager continued: “Knowing Mourinho, he will set up not to lose those and maintain momentum. But it is that period up to the winter which will tell us how much substance there is to this revival.”
