Manchester City lost their second match of the season in the Champions League on Tuesday night to Paris Saint-Germain. It was the team's final game of the month of September.
Pep Guardiola's team had just defeated Premier League winners Chelsea, and many anticipated them to upset the French giants as well. PSG, on the other hand, took all three points thanks to goals from Idrissa Gueye and Lionel Messi.
Meanwhile, Manchester City's October fixtures in the English Premier League might see Pep Guardiola's side maintain their unbeaten record.
Here are three reasons why Manchester City might spend the entire month of October without losing:
1. They have a good coach and a strong team to lead them.
2. They have a strong head-to-head record against their next four opponents.
3. Simple Fixtures
4. They have a competitive mindset.
Manchester City's October fixtures are analyzed;
1. Liverpool versus Manchester City:
This could be Pep Guardiola's team's lone difficult game in the month of October. Liverpool has gone undefeated in every competition they've entered this season.
Although, based on the results of their previous games, Manchester City appears to be the favorite to win all three points when the two teams meet on October 3rd.
2. Burnley vs. Manchester City:
This appears to be a straightforward match for Pep Guardiola's team. Burnley hasn't won a game since the beginning of the season. Out of their first six EPL games, they've lost four and drew one.
Manchester United defeated them both at home and away last season. Hopefully, they'll try to rewrite history once more this season.
3. Manchester City versus Brighton:
Brighton has enjoyed a strong start to the season, having won four of their first six games. They are, however, no match for Pep Guardiola's team.
4. Crystal Palace versus Manchester City:
Given Manchester City's current level and form, a win versus Crystal Palace is a distinct possibility. City won both home and away against Crystal Palace last season. This would undoubtedly be a simple match for Pep Guardiola's team.
Do you believe any of these teams will be able to prevent Manchester City from going undefeated in October?
