Same here. Their defensive record has been very good in the league. 

If they can string it together in attack, they'll definitely be up there.

The thing is Zlatan has missed a massive amount of chances (more than any of the top prem league strikers). 

I also think he slows the play down too much. I can't see him being fit until December at the least.

Pulled them out of some holes though and popped up with a goal when no one else would. I definitely think he is a big reason they'll probably make Champs League position

Pep would be getting the boot if his name wasn't Pep

Mancini and Pellegrini were doing better when they went

Both Mancini and Pellegrini won silverware in their first full season in charge. The pressure will be on Pep to deliver next season.

Manure will be do good to make top 3 next season, don't see anywhere near as much of an improvement as being made out, getting overrated solely because who's the manager. Home record is even worse than what Moyes produced.

£150 million was spent in the summer and Man United are sitting 5th(could finish 6th with two hard games coming up).. nowhere near a big enough improvement. Before anyone mentions EL, they've had an extremely easy run and been lucky as well.

Would be the opposite views if Guardiola had the exact same season as Mourinho and United this year!

As for Guardiola, massively disappointing season and he's made many errors, however the circumstances are different to Mancini/Pellegrini. Mancini had six months of a season to work with players before his first full season. MP also took over a side who finished second, Guardiola took over a side that sneaked fourth on goal difference last season, 12 points less off than what Shitty achieved the season before Pellegrini took over.

No idea why people automatically assumed Pep was coming into an easy job, this team was in need of a massive rebuilding job. He took over a very aging squad, with numerous players 30+ and simply not good enough anymore. Not winning anything with a backline that consists of Sagna, Zabaleta, Otamendi, Stones, Kompany, Clichy and Kolarov. Simply not strong enough never mind whilst attempting to play under Pep's stubborn attacking philosophy.

Both Mourinho and Guardiola has massive jobs next season and under real pressure, Mourinho will be able to buy a further year if they win EL this year.

Another home game against one of the bottom clubs and United fail to win again, actually deserved to lose as was never a pen.

Fail to see this apparent improvement.

I couldn't believe that anyone on BT Sports called it a dive and criticised Rashford. They all said it was good forward play.

If that was a foreigner, the media would of gone ape shit.
