Manchester United has been perfect since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over for Jose Mourinho, but the degree of difficulty increases Sunday against Tottenham and a manager who could well succeed the Red Devils' caretaker this summer.
The conversation surrounding Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham always reverts to winning trophies, but after Spurs took a step toward returning to the League Cup final, it's worth considering the real value of winning it at a time when he is in high demand elsewhere.
Manchester City secured the result it needed–barely. Its 2-1 win over Liverpool has the Premier League poised for a fight to the finish for the title, reigniting a race after an intense 90-minute classic.
On Sunday, Liverpool showed how it's not only improving but it can also continue the title-chasing battle with Manchester City, while Man United's flat, uninspiring performance demonstrated a side who is clearly out of ideas.
