City are now seven points off league leaders Liverpool.

Fan favourite Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been parachuted into the hotseat and could scarcely have wished for a better start to life as caretaker manager, having joined Sir Matt Busby and Mourinho as the only managers in United's history to have begun their reign with three straight league wins. We might be nine points in front now but we have to go to Manchester City in five days.

Virgil Van Dijk took exception and sprang to his team-mate's defence and the pair had to be separated by other players.

What would this list be without a pulsating North London derby? It could have been 5-0 after 15 or 20 minutes. While the Gunners jumped out to a 1-0 lead, Spurs went 2-1 up before halftime on a Harry Kane penalty after Rob Holding fouled Heung-Min Son in the area.

Six of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's 10 passes were from kick-off. Lucas Torreira bagged his first Arsenal goal with 13 minutes remaining for the icing on the cake. "But it's a game at home and hopefully the extra help from our people at the Etihad can come".

The Scot suggested, in fact, that City's greater experience of winning the Premier League title will be equally - if not more - important a factor when they meet again on Thursday.

However, Arab countries had also sanctioned Damascus and criticized its use of military forces against the opposition. At the time analysts told Xinhua that the visit could be a prelude to restoring normal Arab relations with Syria.

Italian Serie A side Lazio are reportedly plotting a transfer for Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian ahead of the upcoming mid-season transfer transfer window scheduled to begin as from the 1st of January.

It is a match City can not afford to lose - and realistically have to win considering the relentless progress of Liverpool, who remain unbeaten 20 matches into the season.

Robertson said of City, who lost successive league matches against Crystal Palace and Leicester City before beating Southampton on Sunday: "They're a fantastic team, a very experienced team and they've been in this position before". No team in the world, not even us.

Zinchenko was caught the wrong side of his man, but did his best to ensure that he was putting enough pressure on to prevent the Southampton wing back to affect any shot he may take.

The heavy loss at Anfield brought back memories of Arsene Wenger's tenure at the club when we'd regularly be on the receiving end of big defeats to our rivals away from home in recent years.
