Manchester United suffered their first Premeir league loss of the season as they were dispatched off 1-0 by a rejuvenated Aston Villa side at Old Trafford on Saturday in their PL round 6 fixture.
The Ole Gunnar Solkjaer led side have won 4, drawn 1 & lost 1 of their openings 6 PL establishments, conceding five times & keeping only 1 cleansheet & sit 4th in the PL standings with 13 points, only 1 point adrift league leaders Liverpool as they aim to mount a serious challenge for the league title this season. However United have undergone a slump in their recent assignments, having lost 3 of their last 4 establiments across all competitions(W1) including a 1-0 loss to Westham in their Carabao cup third round fixture a few days ago.
The Red Devil's are set to continue their UCL campaign, when they host a stubborn Villareal side who humiliated them in the Europa league final last season in the penalty shootout at Old Trafford, in their 2nd UCL group stage clash on Wednesday night. After which, they will take on Everton (H), Leicester (A), Liverpool (H), Tottenham (A) & Manchester City (H) in their next 5 league fixtures.
Considering Manchester United current distratous form, & the fact that 3 of their next 5 PL assignments will be against the "big six" sides, clearly indicates that Cristiano Ronaldo & Co will struggle to bag maximum points in their next 5 PL fixtures which could see them drop out of the top four in the PL standings.
