However, allow me to remind everyone of last season, when City surrendered a five-point lead before December and United repaid the favour with interest - letting slip an eight point lead in April as the trophy went to the blue half of Manchester.

By the same token, it would be extremely naive to proclaim United as the champions-elect this early in the season.
