Man United & Man City’s recent struggles

Both Manchester-based Premier League clubs are currently enduring something of a rough patch.

Manchester City’s is of course a lot less serious than that of United, but, by their usual standards, the Citizens have looked markedly off colour of late.

Pep Guardiola only managed to guide his side to a 2nd-placed league finish in 2019/20, ending the season a staggering 18 points off Liverpool.

City were also once again knocked out of the Champions League at the quarter-final stage.

As for Man United, they ended last season in pretty patchy form, and have continued to struggle this time around, with their latest outing having resulted in a 6-1 drubbing at the hands of Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham.

Pochettino to Manchester?

In the aftermath of their Spurs humiliation, meanwhile, United were subsequently linked with a new manager.

The tactician in question was Mauricio Pochettino, who has been out of work since being sacked by Tottenham last season.

The above-linked report suggested that Ed Woodward is unwilling to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer during the international break.

But, this weekend, the Pochettino to United rumours have reemerged in force once again.

As per a report from the Mirror, the Red Devils are eyeing Pochettino on the back of the club’s poor start to the season under Solskjaer.

However, United are also said to be aware that ‘Poch’ is seen by Man City as a candidate to replace Pep Guardiola at the Etihad, with the Spaniard’s contract set to expire next summer:
