Forecast Premier League results and how the table will look on Boxing Day

October is over and we’re now into November which only means one thing – the build-up to Christmas and the New Year.

For the final time this calendar year, players from both the red and blue half of Manchester have embarked on their respective international adventures as they look to secure qualification for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

Manchester United have already had one casualty of the international break within two days as Paul Pogba looks set to be out until 2022 after picking up a thigh injury in France training.

Pep Guardiola’s side won the first battle between the two fierce rivals as an Eric Bailly own goal and Bernardo Silva tap-in inflicted more home misery for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, as the pressure looms on the United boss.

The Premier League has surpassed a handful of games but there is still a vast majority of the season to play despite the complexion of this campaign already taking shape as Chelsea and City set the early paces after West Ham dented Liverpool’s hopes before the international break.

Four managers have already found themselves on the managerial chopping board as sacking season is well under way. Xisco Munoz, Steve Bruce and Nuno Espirito Santo have all been relieved of their duties after Dean Smith became the latest casualty at Villa Park.

Solskjaer is among the favourites next to be axed but going into the November internationals he still has his position in the Old Trafford dugout.

City sit three points off of Thomas Tuchel’s side at the top of the table but level on points with the Hammers in second place after they edged past Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Joao Cancelo, Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus have been among the outstanding performers for the Blues this season, with Phil Foden continuing his meteoric development and Jack Grealish continues to find his feet following his summer move.

However, at Old Trafford, the pressure continues to mount for Solskjaer after defeats to rivals Liverpool and Man City in recent weeks

Last season saw Guardiola’s side behind Klopp at Christmas before overturning the deficit to be crowned champions for the third time in the Spaniard’s spell. Can they do it again this time or can United turn things around under Solskjaer?
