Manchester United

Where else to start than last year's champions and 13-times winners of the English Premier League, Manchester United?

Mind you, what can you say about the Red Devils now with no Sir Alex Ferguson? It's all a a bit different and somewhat surreal without the main man at Old Trafford this season. 

The pressure is very much on new chief David Moyes especially considering some early season results. 

The derby-day defeat to arch-rivals Liverpool on Sunday was a tough one for Moyes to take and the Scot would've certainly wanted to at least avoid defeat. Add that to the 0-0 bore draw at home to the tactical Chelsea and you have to already start questioning the mentality and strength of the United squad.

They say that you're final league position is often determined by results against the clubs around you and Moyes will certainly hope for more positive ones to come if this is the case.

Much depends on whether Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney can rekindle again upfront after a much-talked about summer regarding the pair's on-field relationship. It will also be interesting to see where £27.5m signing Marouane Fellaini falls into place at United having been with Moyes at Everton.
