The first of these loses for City was the shock 3-2 defeat by Norwich. However, City responded with five victories in succession that included the record breaking 8-0 victory against Watford. In this period they have also won their two opening Champions league games and are the favourites to now go on and land the title. This was the 3-0 away victory against Shakhtar Donetsk and the 2-0 home success against Dinamo Zagreb.
Manchester City then went into the recent home fixture against Wolves as the overwhelming favourites to win their sixth game in succession. However, they were extremely poor and could only produce two shots on target from 18 shots. This led to their downfall as Adama Traore scored two late goals and took the maximum points for the visitors. City really cannot afford to drop further behind Liverpool if they are to retain their title, with eight points now separating the two sides.
Next up for Manchester City is an away fixture against Crystal Palace after the international break. The latter have made a strong start to the season picking up 14 points to date, so this is going to be another tough test for the champions. Liverpool, on the other hand, will be looking to extend their winning run away at Old Trafford, with United continuing to struggle in the league.
