The Red Devils have seen the worst possible scenario to start a Premier League season. After opening with two consecutive defeats, one of them by a 4-0 scoreline against Brentford, it was an indicator that something had to change. They immediately signed Brazilians Casemiro and Antony for almost £150 million.

Although they are not the ones who turned the team's fortunes around, it has been since that defeat that a different Manchester United has been seen. In the last six games they have won five, the only defeat a controversial penalty. But clearly the club's mentality has changed, and above all the line-up has changed.

Cristiano Ronaldo has taken a secondary role, and only in the last game scored the first goal of his season. While England defender Harry Maguire has been singled out as one of the worst performers, and statistically if he is an England National Team player, he is having a bad time.

While with the French central defender, Raphael Varane, things have changed, as, when he starts for the team, they have won every game. Furthermore, with him on the pitch only two goals have been conceded, meaning that defensive productivity indicates that Man Utd concede one goal every three games when Varane is playing.

Manchester United will have days off because the last two Premier League fixtures were not played and the international break started this week. The Red Devils' next game is on 2 October when they visit the Citizens for the Manchester derby at Etihad Stadium.
