The month of September was already scheduled to have a week of international FIFA days, in addition to the sensitive events of Queen Elizabeth II. The month has been this way, even when the team was on a winning streak in the Premier League, and will not play in the Premier League until October.


The last two home games have been postponed, meaning that the only official competition the club is playing in is the Europa League, in which they lost their opening game at Old Trafford 1-0 to Spain's Real Sociedad.

The team will have another game in this competition tomorrow when they visit Sheriff in Moldova and it is urgent to get a good result out of the game, the team's performance in this international tournament which is the prelude to the Champions League. Erik ten Hag's team knows that they are obliged to win this edition of Europa League.


Focusing on the domestic competition is where the team looks set to undergo another short pre-season, having last played in the Premier League on 4 September where Manchester United beat tournament leaders Arsenal from London. The team must not lose their way but above all, what must not happen is that they must not drop the pace that has seen them string together four consecutive league wins.


Is it more of an advantage or disadvantage to have almost a month of inactivity?


On 2 October, Man Utd visit the Etihad to play the Manchester derby after the aforementioned FIFA day off, which represents an important test for the Red Devils' title aspirations. It will undoubtedly be a game full of strategy where the Citizens will be favourites to win the game.
