Table: 3rd, 12 points
Results: Lost 3-2 home to Tottenham
Fixtures: At Newcastle, Sunday
United lost to Tottenham at the weekend, but somehow remained above Spurs in our rankings. How's that now?
Adam: I know, I know...how can they be ahead of Spurs? Well, the Red Devils dominated the game when they wanted to, they've been more impressive outside of that matchup and they have a higher ceiling as the season goes on. Still, their defense—especially Rio Ferdinand—is getting exposed more regularly than Kate Middleton in British lad mags. Seriously, Google it...Actually, don't.
Sean: United's defense and midfield have been exposed all season. In Spurs, they finally faced a team strong enough to expose them in whole.
Dan: Losses to Spurs and Everton are not how Sir Alex wanted to start this season. Or any season.
